    “I have found another form of prayer.”

    So have I, Reverend.  It’s watching First Reformed over and over again.

  • Roma

    Roma

    ★★★★½

    Lately, I’ve started to worry that I’m out of touch with my emotions because I have not cried or even teared up from a movie in the past couple of years, and I watched a lot of very sad movies in that time.

    Roma broke this spell less than halfway through its runtime.

    This is one of the most honest and beautiful films of the decade in every single aspect of its presentation. Every shot and every sound is packed…

    Shyamalan... you son of a bitch.

    Split

    ★★★

    When people talk about this movie it’s almost always just to talk about the Unbreakable twist, and I think that’s pretty revealing. Yeah, it was a good way to justify all of the absurdity of the third act. I might even say it felt like a natural connection rather than a franchising attempt.

    But honestly, it mostly just makes me remember how much better Unbreakable is than this jumble of messy ideas. James McAvoy is the only reason it kinda works.

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    Sorry to Bother You, Blindspotting, and now BlacKkKlansman.

    They make up the 2018 trifecta of unorthodox political movies that “America needs right now.”

    If only the people who need to see them would actually watch them.

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★½

    I was going to come up with a joke to put in this review, but then Aquaman emerged from the ocean onto the sands of the Sahara Desert in slow-motion, Baywatch-style, while Pitbull’s cover of “Africa” by Toto blasted in the background.

    So there’s my joke.
