  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    THE INVISIBLE MAN skillfully & purposefully explores the traumas of an abusive relationship in all of its horror & agony. Elisabeth Moss is unsurprisingly amazing while the deliberate camerawork & phenomenal sound mixing are simply to die for. Extremely effective & triggering. This movie better not be invisible to audiences man.

  • Onward

    Onward

    ★★★★

    ONWARD finds many clever ways to mix its use of quests, spells, elves, dragons & more into its unique story. Think “I Lost My Body” meets “Dungeons & Dragons” with a heartfelt family drama at its center. It’s definitely got that “magical” Pixar storytelling. When it comes straight from the heart, the spell works. And the tears flow.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★

    STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER frustratingly retcons nearly every bold choice made in THE LAST JEDI but as a grand finale to the Skywalker saga, it still manages to somewhat satisfy with its scale, heart & various character arcs by playing things safe. Fast, fun & shocking, though not in the way you would expect. The fandom will be divided...always.

    Waves

    ★★★★½

    WAVES is an absolute knockout from Trey Edward Shults who has ascended to a whole new level as a filmmaker & storyteller. Powerhouse performances from the entire cast. Gorgeous filmmaking, patience & maturity results in one of the greatest explorations of humanity & toxic masculinity’s impact on broken homes & lives I’ve ever seen
