    ★★★★

    (5 fo tuo 4) TAERG :edarG

    NO SPOILERS AT ALL!

    Christopher Nolan has crafted yet another well executed mind bending film in Tenet. While in previous films, such as Inception, Nolan was able to balance plot development and character development, Tenet mainly focuses on its plot.

    From the opening scene, the plot hits you like a runaway train. The director does not slow the train down for you to catch up, you either keep up or watch the movie again.…

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Grade: MASTERPIECE (5 out of 5)

    I am in awe of what Bong Joon-ho has accomplished with Parasite. After two subpar films (that’s right, I didn’t really enjoy Snowpiercer nor Okja), I feared Bong had lost his mojo, especially after three fantastic South Korean films.

    Parasite removes all doubt and makes me ashamed I doubted Bong for a moment. The praise and the hype might seem like hyperbole, but I assure you they are not. Parasite is not only one…

    Ugetsu

    ★★★★½

    Grade: HALL OF FAME

    There are scarier films out there, but none more haunting than Ugetsu. The impact of the film lingers in the viewer's mind like a fragrance long after other films' jump scares have been forgotten.

  • It's a Wonderful Life

    It's a Wonderful Life

    ★★★★★

    Grade: MASTERPIECE (5 out of 5)

    Everything that needs to be written about this movie has already been written. So, I will simply say that It's a Wonderful Life is nearly two hours of build-up to one powerhouse scene so emotionally potent that over 70 years later we are still reeling from its impact.

    "Why so seriou--- Wait, that's not it.

    "You ever dance with the devil in the pale--- No, that's not it either.

    "Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?"
    -Arthur Fleck

    In 2016, New York City (aka Gotham) had 335 homicides, which was nearly one homicide a day. Sounds rough? Well, in 1981, New York City had 1,826 homicides! This carnival of crime is the setting of Todd Phillips' Joker. Add…

    Yojimbo

    ★★★★★

    Grade: MASTERPIECE (5 out of 5)

    The first thing that strikes me when re-watching Yojimbo is the level of craftsmanship. Legendary director Akira Kurosawa is able to execute a film better than any other director in the history of the medium. Kurosawa was inspired by the masters before him like Fritz Lang and John Ford, and now Kurosawa's influence can be seen far and wide. From Star Wars and Spaghetti Westerns to Pixar and Mad Max: Fury Road, Kurosawa's films…
