    Sexy Beast


    A heist movie where the main character has no interest in even being involved.

    I loved Director Jonathan Glazer's last movie 'Under The Skin', so I thought I would check his directorial debut Sexy Beast which I have always heard was really great.

    While I liked some aspects, I felt it was just ok and did not amount to much overall.

    The movie stars Ray Winstone who plays Gal, who is retired criminal who apparently specialized in cracking safes. In…

    Quick unedited thoughts...

    A deeply compelling character morale drama, featuring two families around Thanksgiving break in the early 70s . And while it was a very engaging movie, it ultimately left me pretty disappointed.

    The best Disney movies always start with that classic zoom…

The action is fantastic, the comedy is on point especially from the Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor, and they still made time to tell a compelling story involving all these characters spread across the entire universe. Despite each of these groups of characters having their own unique approaches, the movie manages to blend…

    Frances Ha


    A simple story of a dreamer in the big city wanting to live the bohemian lifestyle.

    So after the overwhelming success of 'Lady Bird' last year, I was curious to see another Greta Gerwig movie, and Frances Ha was a movie I kept noticing on people's Letterboxd accounts. Plus the only other Noah Baumbach movie I have seen was years ago, when I saw 'The Squid and the Whale' in the theater.

    If 'Lady Bird' was a reflection of Greta…
