    Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    ★★★

    Once again, RIP Chadwick Boseman. You were a legendary actor and this was definitely one of your best performances.

    Now if only it was a used in a movie that was not as painfully average as this

  • The Rules of the Game

    The Rules of the Game

    ★★★

    Somewhat lacking in the humor and pacing department, but the storyline, acting, directing, cinematography, editing, music, and production values really kept me interested throughout, especially with it’s satirical look at upper class French society.

  • Carnival of Souls

    Carnival of Souls

    ★★★

    Has a very slow, underwhelming first 35 minutes or so. But after that, it did start to pick up and execute the concept in a satisfying manner, even if it feels aimless at times. Script is rough around the edges though (especially that dialogue. Yikes 😳). Also, the acting is honestly pretty below average.

    But whatever, decent way to end off my Halloween night.
