    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★★½

    In which the gaffer discovers a stash of LED strips!!

    In all seriousness, the hand-to-hand fighting has never been better, and the knife-throwing scene at the start is the best sequence in the entire series.

    But this movie suffers from focusing less on John Wick, and too much on the mythology. When the filmmakers try to raise the stakes with the Adjudicator and telephone operators, that effort backfires. It comes across as silly and lame.

    I mean, not everyone in…

    Those candlesss 🔥

    This movie is actually deeply funny, and beautiful and tragic. Every character is incredibly polite and well-spoken, but their actions are so very rotten. It’s a study in contrasts.

    The Big Lebowski

    ★★★★½

    I watched The Big Lebowski back in 2007. I enjoyed it, but I didn't really understand it, because I was a dumb kid starting college.

    I'm happy to report that the movie's a blast. A prettyyyy much perfect and quotable script with outstanding acting.

    To be honest, my attention wandered during the extended "dream" sequence. But to be fair, the Dude is, by his very nature, always high as fuck 🎳

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★½

    To quote my friend Max Keller: “This is the most Wes Anderson film to ever Wes Anderson.”

    I found it mildly entertaining.
