    Hell or High Water


    A modern American fairytale, so authentically American in its experience. Poor Texans robbing the rich (a regional bank system) to give to the poor (themselves), being hunted by Texas Rangers, one old white cowboy (Jeff Bridges) and one Mexican and Native descendent (Gil Birmingham, who is underrated but always a complete badass). There’s cars, murder, family, casinos, oil, working class folks, plus a bank manager getting popped in the nose and who doesn't love that?

    Spider-Man: Homecoming


    There's so many things to love about this movie. I loved that it felt local to Queens as opposed to the Times Square/tourist feel of Sam Raimi’s trilogy, *and* that the cast felt as diverse as New York actually is.

    Also seeing a kid Spider-Man with my kid made it one of the most exciting Marvel movies to experience. I think it's the single best representation of Spider-Man on film to date. Highly recommended!

    I gave this four stars instead of five because of two words: Kylo Ren. More Kylo Ren, less other things. Unless Oscar Isaac, but what the hell I thought he wasn't in the movie enough too. Kylo Ren and Oscar Isaac 2016

    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl


    I love that it's not a love story. I love that there aren't any easy answers, or answers at all. I love that there's not a tidy conclusion. The last 35 minutes of the movie were my favorite.
