    ★★½

    Brendon Urie and Andrew Garfield's love-child is sexually confused and is a complete dick about it to pretty much everyone who cares about him.

    But everything is suddenly alright again once he comes out.

    How convenient.

    The first act-and-a-half work fairly (occasionally extremely) well, but then the rest just goes and ruins it all.

    ★★★★

    A fantastic cast, wonderful character development, and economic direction fuel the fire that is this wholly effective true story.

    This was completely under my radar until I was bored and it came on Starz a couple weeks back. It blew me away. Josh Brolin is seriously killing it these days, and there's no sign that he'll be slowing down anytime soon. And to that I say: Thank God.

    ★★★½

    I honestly don’t quite know whether this is some sort of millennial masterpiece or a steaming pile of shit.

    I do know that I (briefly) felt compelled to write quite a long piece on this film, and that, while watching, I was enjoying whatever it is I was given.

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★★

    "No one understands the lonely perfection of my dreams."

    Michael Fassbender should get a nomination for this. He won't, but he should. He's so fucking good.

    Outside a handful of problems (mostly some minor pacing issues in the second act, but also some minor horror movie clichés here or there), I loved every second of this film. Fassbender's just a wicked delight, the production design is amazing, and Ridley Scott manages to build up a great deal of tension and dread throughout the film's fairly basic, familiar story arc.
