    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★½

    Birds of Prey was a miraculous step up from its mind-numbing predecessor. Every single element that soured Suicide Squad into a week-old room temperature beer disguised as an action comedy has been improved upon with such flying colours that Cathy Yan and Christina Hodson deserve nothing less than glowing praise.

    The action is thrilling, creative, and oftentimes provided some of the strongest humour in the film. The villain (Ewan McGregor with Ian McDiarmid energy) is a highlight and served as…

    Cats

    ½

    Cats holds a deeply personal place in my heart.

    My grandma was perhaps the utmost contributor to my growth as a man. I struggled with interpersonal relationships from a very young age, but for some reason my grandma was able to break through that. She genuinely understood me in almost all cases, and when she did not, she acknowledged that she did not and worked to. She collected figurines of elephants and turtles, a fact I jump at the chance…

    Marie Antoinette

    ★★★★½

    Somehow, this movie is able to weave between comedy, drama, musical, and horror without any whiplash. Usually this level of historical inaccuracy would turn me into an insufferable knowitall, but the visual and musical language of Marie Antoinette kept reeling me back in whenever it started to pester. There's a contagious energy to it that keeps everything engaging, and the wonderful performances of the entire cast (special mention to Rose Byrne, effortlessly walking away with every scene she's in), this…

    Nope

    ★½

    I'm just...did we all see the same movie? I'm not trying to be a contrarian, I wanted to love this. I was in it for awhile there because I thought it was gonna go in an interesting direction and it just...didn't.

    Feels like Jordan Peele put five screenplays that would range from "okay" to "great" in a blender and just grabbed bits and bobs from all of them without any regard for consistency.

    The praise for Nope has only added…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    The most creatively exciting movie I've seen in years.

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    For the first 40ish minutes, I was baffled that people hated it. By the end, I was seriously debating if Don't Look Up is the most miserable failure of a film I've ever seen. I think lesser of everyone above the line that decided to involve themselves with the production of this movie.

    What an awful, baffling, misguided, unfinished, nonsensical, boring, confusing, preachy, embarrassing mess.
