• Babylon

    Babylon

    ★★★★★

    Babylon is a movie that i consider one of the most perfect that the year has to offer, and one that wholly lives up to its ambitious presentation and story, making for one of the most satisfying theater-going experiences i have experienced this entire year. 

    I will start off this review by raving about the screenplay and why it worked for me. This is a movie in which it tackles themes that have been explored in Damien Chazelle’s previous works…

  • The Whale

    The Whale

    ★★★★

    The Whale is a film that, while not perfect by any means, is one that i still found to be rather effective at what is was trying to accomplish and features some of the best acting that you will see all year, which is worth the price of admission alone.

    I will start things off by talking about brilliant the writing was for this movie. Based on the play of the same name, writer Samuel D. Hunter gives viewers a…

  • Avatar: The Way of Water

    Avatar: The Way of Water

    ★★★★

    Even though i was not fond of the first movie, i found Avatar: The Way Of Water to be a mostly strong sequel that improves upon the original in many ways while also delivering on being a highly entertaining, awe-inspiringly well-crafted film that carries a ton of heart and emotional stakes as well. 

    First of all, despite some problems i had with the screenplay (which i’ll talk about later), i do want to talk about the aspects of it that…

  • White Noise

    White Noise

    ★★★★★

    Even though i found myself liking this movie a lot, i NEVER would have went as far as to call White Noise one of my top 3 favorite movies of the whole year. It is a one-of-a-kind that seems like it would fall flat on its face because of how much it has on its place, but the impossible happened when it came to bringing this film to life, and it is backed up by the excellent cast and crew…

  • Bones and All

    Bones and All

    ★★★★½

    Bones & All is a kind of film that would seem impossible to bring to life at first glance, but since this movie had the correct cast and crew on board, it wholeheartedly succeeds in everything that it is trying to accomplish and comes off as one of the most unique films of the whole year.

    I will start this review off by talking how excellent it was from a writing perspective. Writer David Kajganich (adapting a book from author Camille…

  • Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    ★★★★

    Glass Onion is a worthwhile sequel to Knives Out that i had a really good time and was happy to watch in a theater, even if it falls short compared to the original in a couple of ways.

    I will start talking about my positives i had with the movie by talking about the screenplay, which was pretty good for the most part. This is a film that serves as one that can still be enjoyed as its own individual…

  • The Menu

    The Menu

    ★★★★½

    The Menu was not only one of the most fun theatrical experiences of the year, but it is also just a brilliant film that i am pretty sure will speak to those who specialize in critiquing, as it has a lot to say about art and those that are observing it.

    I will start things off by talking about one of my favorite aspects of the movie: the screenplay. As mentioned before, this film tackles not only art and those…

  • The Fabelmans

    The Fabelmans

    ★★★★★

    The Fabelmans is not only one of the most perfect movies that this year has to offer, but it is currently in my top 5 of the entire year due to how expertly it showcases that Steven Spielberg’s magic still isn’t gone due to how much time, effort, and love was put into making this movie as perfect as it could possibly be.

    I will start everything off my giving my raving thoughts on the superb screenplay written by Spielberg…

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★½

    For as lackluster as the MCU (and the majority of superhero movies) have become lately, i found myself being more impressed with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever than I thought i was going to be. Despite how glaring its flaws are, i found myself saying that the elements that worked about the movie stood out on top at the end of the day. 

    Speaking of which, i will start talking about the positives that i do have with the movie by…

  • The Banshees of Inisherin

    The Banshees of Inisherin

    ★★★★★

    The Banshees Of Inisherin is a perfect example of how a director uses his best assets as such to bring yet another masterful film into his table that is the perfect mix between powerful, hilarious, and thought-provoking all at the same time.

    To start things off, i will first sing my praises about the screenplay, which is a flawless one from top to bottom. Director-writer Martin McDonagh explores his themes of friendship, loneliness, different types of masculinity, and forgiveness in…

  • TÁR

    TÁR

    ★★★★★

    TÁR is a film that is completely defined by how much of a strong conversation starter it is due to how complex, engrossing, and engaging it is the whole way through, which made for one of the most immersive cinematic experiences of the whole year. 

    I will start my rave-filled thoughts on this film by talking about the screenplay, which is one of the best of the whole year. What writer-director Todd Field accomplishes in the writing department for this…

  • Bros

    Bros

    ★★★★½

    Bros is the perfect kind of crowd pleasing romantic comedy that not only contains plenty of laughs, but is also a movie that contains much more to it at its core than you might think.

    I will start by talking about the screenplay for this movie written by Nicholas Stoller and Billy Eichner, which i consider to be one of the best for a romantic comedy movies in quite some time. There are interesting themes buried underneath this movie from…
