  • The Harder They Fall

    The Harder They Fall

    ★★★

    Too stylish for its own good at points but not lacking in substance, The Harder They Fall doesn’t reinvent the genre’s wheel, and it feels uneven at points, but it does bring a particularly fresh perspective that never fails to entertain. All the same, this is an extremely fun western that flies by with ease, lead by pretty solid performances across the board from its all star cast.

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★½

    A lengthy epic that veers far off the paved marvel blueprint, Eternals feels far less conventional than a lot of its predecessors. There’s heaps of intriguing world building and expansion abound and the central narrative is “epic” in scale (and in runtime) but it’s unfortunately undercut by shallow, heavy handed subtext, poor character development, vapid pacing, and an eye maiming color palette. 
    Its far less of a typical superhero film and more so a character driven vehicle, but my biggest…

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    ★★★½

    Retreads a lot some of the same story beats from the first film, but by returning to its roots, this third film of the series becomes a vast improvement over the disappointing Temple of Doom. Sean Connery was a brilliant addition.

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

    A full on snoozefest worsened by distractingly bad visual effects, vapid pacing, obnoxious fan service, and mediocre performances across the board. The most surprising thing about this latest adaption of the series is how insanely boring it is, from start to finish it struggles to pique the interest, and the overstuffing of plots from both of the first two Resident Evil games does it zero favors in the narrative department. Even as a fan of the series, there is little here to enjoy or even remember past the credits

    ★★½

    Ambitious, but never fully realizing its true potential, Peele’s sophomore effort is more along of the lines of your standard cat and mouse chaser slasher with only mere dashes of humor and a disappointing lack of thrills. The ending is a let down as well, and slightly convoluted in its execution, and overall the film just does far too little to keep you invested throughout. 
    Nyong’o is fantastic, she was long overdue for a lead role such as this, in…

  • Widows

    Widows

    ★★★★

    Pure excellence, Widows is a politically charged heist thriller that manages to make the stakes high on such a low scale. The performances all around are to die for, led by Viola Davis, who has made a great case for being the very best Hollywood has to offer. McQueen’s stylish direction is evident in every scene in addition to the score and cinematography being utterly fantastic, per usual in his films. Additionally, the political backdrop of it manages to  be compelling…
