    Jurassic World Dominion

    ★★

    Oof. That was rough. 

    The movie going experience was not too bad for me, as I got to take my girlfriends little brother, but the film itself is a whole other bag. The writing might just be some of the laziest, laugh out loud worthy (in the worst possible way), and insane I’ve seen all this year. Probably the past three years. They totally butchered the returning cast members from the original, essentially boiling them down to nostalgia bait. The…

    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    ★★

    The shaky cam is strong with this one. 

    I think I’ve outgrown Star Wars, at least the new media they’re just pumping out now. This sucks because I love Ewan as Obi-Wan and I think bring him and Hayden back was a brilliant idea. But damn, the execution couldn’t have been worse in my opinion. I feel like with every episode, something happens that feels like it shouldn’t have been possible or happened at all. It’s just lazy storytelling.

    ★★★½

    Ummmmmmmm…yeah?

    Needed to process this one a little bit since last nights early screening. I like a lot of it, and kinda hated some of it. The first half has some atrociously aggressive editing that made my head spin and sometimes the tone of the film was bouncing all over the place when it could’ve very easily settled and been much more powerful. 

    Austin Butler is undeniably a star. He transformed into this iconic legend. After a while you just…

    Crimes of the Future

    ★★★★

    I was hooked from the very start…

    Crimes of the Future offers some of the most complex themes and lavish world-building I’ve had the pleasure of viewing since Blade Runner 2049. It’s performances from everyone are stellar, with the standout being Viggo Mortenson to me. The film stumbles only a couple times for me. I exited the theater already hungry to dive back into this insane world and story that David Cronenberg had crafted.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    Mark my words:

    We will remember action filmmaking in terms of before Top Gun: Maverick, and after Top Gun: Maverick

    Breathtaking and sweat inducing start to finish. Filled with memorable performances and actions scenes that genuinely are fresh and real. Overflowing with passion and heart, this film will go down in the history books.

    Plus, my dad approves. In fact, he loved it.

    Iconic, but ridiculously silly and camp. 

    I love it though.

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    Okay…what? 

    This film is a confusing one to say the least. It has some amazing moments and finally the MCU goes hardcore with its violence and terror, but something about this film felt off for a lot of it. It sucks when you can tell some of it was reshot, it just really brings you out of the movie, and I noticed it a few times. Also, the VFX are goofy fun at best, and downright awful at worst. Benedict…

    The script and visuals slap. Performances are all great, but man, when this came out I was sooooo over origin stories. Looking back, it’s a pretty solid time.
