    My Darling Vivian

    ★★

    Once Riddlehoover finds the movie’s groove, Vivian’s story carries a rather profound sense of sadness. It’s easy to empathize with her as the four daughters recount Vivian’s struggles in raising not four children, but also tending to a practically oversized home and dealing with the physical and psychological aspects of celebrity that come with being the wife of Johnny Cash – all single-handedly, of course, as Cash was on tour for months at a time. At a point, we’re informed…

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★

    Whether it be superheroes, kaiju monsters, or paranormal investigators, the interconnected series of cinematic adventures have come to define the landscape of the modern blockbuster, but the idea of a “cinematic universe” has existed almost as long as the motion picture itself. As early as 1925, Universal was planting seeds for a cohesive universe of characters in the form of their “Universal Classic Monsters,” not only bringing literary horrors such as Count Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster to the silver screen…

    ★★½

    Not my favorite Hitchcock, surprisingly. The one-shot presentation is innovative for it's time, but this really the first time the "Master of Suspense" didn't really thrill me. Don't know if it's because of the cinematography or just the narrative itself, but I found that it moves pretty sluggishly for a movie that barely runs 80 minutes. Sort of makes up for it with a decent final 15-20 minutes, but I don't think this one will really be sticking with me.

    ★★★½

    You know why I watched it. Extremely hard to sit through that third act. 31 years later and some things just never change.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★½

    Remarkably intelligent and undeniably ambitious, Christopher Nolan finds the perfect balance of space thrills and human emotion in the truly brilliant Interstellar.

  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One

    ★★★★½

    Ok so I recognize that this narrative is quite flawed, but dammit this is the Spielberg I've been waiting for for so long. This is the Spielberg I grew up on, the Spielberg that introduced me to film in my childhood and the one that cemented my love for it. Yes, the references are fun, and there's one in the second act that made me cry so much I had tears streaming down my face and had to try to…
