  • Deadpool 2

    Deadpool 2

    ★★★

    This entire film should just have been Keeping up with the X-men cuz Colossus, TNW and Yukio are the CUTEST

  • The Ring Thing

    The Ring Thing

    ★★★

    Here’s the thing — despite the mess the movie makes of its high ambitions (esp narratively and that ending??), I liked and found myself constantly engaged in the story. All credit to the actors’ realistic and relatable portrayal of a modern day lesbian couple, and the intention of the movie to explore topics (some lgbt-specifc) that are, in my opinion, interesting, topical, and well-worth exploring. (How I hoped this movie actually answered some of them)
    I simply don’t think there are enough indie LGBTQ movies that try this. So here’s to that.

  • Disobedience

    Disobedience

    Perhaps if the movie better justified the weight of its title, disobedience, the romance and character progression would be better materialized. Despite solid performances from the central trio, and an impressive level of tension throughout, I feel that the tension and conflict at the centre of this movie becomes pretty monotone pretty soon.

  • Battle Royale

    Battle Royale

    ★★★

    I appreciate the score, the head-on, almost comical violence, and the fact that we are thrown into chaos immediately. But (perhaps due to parts of the script and performances) I found it too cheesy to take seriously and be convincingly affected.

  • Thoroughbreds

    Thoroughbreds

    ★★★

    Rich teenager angst and Yorgos Lanthimos style execution just doesn’t mix for me

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    ★★★

    Banner and Romanoff is the fanfiction that nobody asked for BUT ALSO nobody wanted

    can’t believe they have to clean this mess up in Endgame

  • Columbus

    Columbus

    ★★★

    I ended up enjoying the architecture way more than the plot itself

  • The Greatest Showman

    The Greatest Showman

    This felt like a very systematic Hollywood musical production, with the plot and music all generic. Not to mention the plot is sugarcoating the actual events. The musical cast are professional though, and Zendaya <3

  • Shrek

    Shrek

    I don’t like the green shrek

  • Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Ain't Them Bodies Saints

    Rooney for you I almost passed out from all those swirling cameras in all those swirling cornfields

  • Love, Rosie

    Love, Rosie

    they really needed better communication

  • Safe

    Safe

    ★★★

    Sorry Todd Haynes but sometimes I can’t
