  • Widows

    Widows

    ★★

    It’s rare that a film feels poorly paced, hard to follow and showcases ill-defined characters all at the same time. I expected Steve McQueen to hit a few of a those marks; hell, I expected him to hit them out of the park. Unfortunately, Widows was just kind of messy. 

    I spent a majority of the film waiting for something big and thrilling to happen. When those moments finally came they were just underwhelming. The sub-plots and minor twists just…

  • Transformers: The Last Knight

    Transformers: The Last Knight

    ★★★½

    Probably the best Transformers movie in a decade. I was genuinely surprised. It was a pretty overloaded movie, but the stakes and the scale were staggering. The writers crafted a compelling story, which is something the franchise has been missing almost since it’s inception.

    I also enjoyed the relevance of the characters. Throughout a majority of this franchise the humans have mostly just been brave individuals with little significance, but this installment changed that. Mark Wahlberg is hard to dislike;…

  • The Wizard of Oz

    The Wizard of Oz

    ★★★★

    It’s impossible to bring up musicals and not mention The Wizard of Oz. What’s more amazing is how well the visuals hold up for a movie that’s older than some of our grandparents.

  • Vertigo

    Vertigo

    ★★★★

    Vertigo was watched on TV with family over Christmas break when I was a freshman in high school. I was absolutely spellbound throughout every scene. A definitive thriller for sure.

  • Schindler's List

    Schindler's List

    ★★★★★

    I had seen bits and pieces of Schindler's List in my youth, but never had the guts to sit through the whole thing till I was in my teens. I sort of blind bought a special edition of the dvd and decided it’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen after I watched it in its entirety.

  • Singin' in the Rain

    Singin' in the Rain

    ★★★★½

    I distinctly remember watching this on television with my parents for the first time. It was integral to my realization that I’m just a big fan of musicals and I’m not ashamed of it.

  • Casablanca

    Casablanca

    ★★★★

    This movie was a little over my head when I watched it as a teenager. I really need to revisit it.

  • Citizen Kane

    Citizen Kane

    ★★★★★

    One of the most influential and important movies of all time.

  • Tomb Raider

    Tomb Raider

    ★★

    There just wasn’t very much heart to this movie. The Tomb Raider video games were/are great, but I don’t think that greatness translates into film. 

    Alicia Vikander was great casting, though. She looked the part; she was absolutely ripped. I also love seeing Walton Goggins in a major role. I’ll always root for his career.

  • Pacific Rim: Uprising

    Pacific Rim: Uprising

    ★★★

    There’s just something about destruction porn, giant monsters and robots that entertains the crap out of me.

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★½

    Such a unique movie. One of the better endings I’ve seen in a while.

  • The Circle

    The Circle

    ★½

    Did anyone understand the ending? What was the big deal?
