    The Santa Clause 2

    ★★★

    I feel like I’m in the minority of people that actually enjoy this movie. Toy Santa can be annoying sometimes, but other scenes is hilarious. Tim Allen is just so entertaining to watch.

    I like it 🤷🏻‍♀️

    ★★

    Yeah, I think I’m probably not the target demographic for this one. 

    It was tolerable, and even funny in a few parts (even if the parts we were laughing at weren’t necessarily the actual “jokes”). Probably not something we’ll add to the yearly Christmas movie list.

    ★★★

    Hadn’t seen this one in quite some time, despite having watched it many times as a child. It doesn’t hold up super well, but it’s still entertaining due to how enjoyable Tim Allen is to watch.

    This film will be talked about for years, if not decades to come. If nobody else will, I’ll personally make sure it happens. Absolutely legendary performances.

    ★★★★

    Honestly, I'm just surprised this movie not only got made, but is tracking to make a billion dollars.

    Joaquin gives undoubtedly one of the best performances of the year, he single-handedly carries the film. The direction is good, cinematography is outstanding, and the score is excellent. I think the film could have probably benefited from having not been written by Todd Philips, as some of the writing was a bit on the nose, but it was pretty solid nonetheless.

    Really, really enjoyed it.

    I'm going to have a hard time articulating how I feel about what I just watched, so I'll just rattle a few things off. 

    That was probably one of the wildest films I've ever seen, and Robert Eggers has pretty much solidified himself as one of the most talented directors working today. The performances from Dafoe and Pattinson are nothing short of incredible. They're both absolutely delirious madmen and I loved every single second of it. Farts and all.

    Memories of Murder

    ★★★★½

    Masterfully directed film. The framing and scene blocking is nothing short of stunning. I definitely need to catch up on Bong Joon-ho while I anxiously wait for Parasite to come to a theater near me.

  • The Witch

    The Witch

    ★★★★½

    I swear, it gets better every time I watch it. With it being so expertly crafted, I still just can’t believe this is Eggers’ first feature. 

  • Hell House LLC

    Hell House LLC

    ★★½

    Not too bad, for what seems to be a fairly amateur project. It takes a little too long to pick up speed, and then has some decent scares scattered throughout - though a fair few of them fizzle out due to either poor acting or directing.

  • Hail Satan?

    Hail Satan?

    ★★★★

    So, basically The Satanic Temple is humanism with a mascot? I feel like that’s something I can get behind. 



    Excellent doc, worth a watch regardless of what your belief system is.

  • El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    You’re lucky. You didn’t have to wait your entire life to do something special. 

    I didn’t particularly want it, we definitely didn’t need it, but I’m glad we got it. A solid, fairly low-key conclusion to Jesse’s story. I was pretty nervous going into it since Breaking Bad is one of my favorite television series of all time, but I should have had faith that Vince Gilligan would pull it off. It was a pretty unnecessary addition, but very good nonetheless.

  • The Shining

    The Shining

    ★★★★★

    Here's to five miserable months on the wagon, and all the irreparable harm it has caused me.

    What can I say that hasn’t already been said about The Shining? It’s pretty much perfect in my eyes. I’ve seen it a dozen times and I’m sure I’ll watch it a dozen more. Jack Nicholson’s performance is one of my favorites of all time, it just never gets old.
