    Da 5 Bloods

    ★★★★

    Hmmm. I feel conflicted about this film. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty good. In fact, it's pretty great. It's a solidly crafted film with a strong story behind it with great characters and energetic direction from Spike Lee. In terms of cinematography, this is probably Lee's most colorful and vibrant looking film yet. The transition between the different aspect ratios, each signifying different periods, and separating the different settings, was probably the coolest aspect of the film. The performances…

    ★★★★★

    Far from an easy film to digest on first viewing but I can easily say Silence ranks as one of Scorsese's finest films to date. I have desperately wanted a faith-based film like this to come along in a decade seemingly dominated by Pure Flix and shit of the same ilk. What Scorsese has done here is he has made a film that does not ask easy questions and is frequently challenging in that regard – the main question being:…

    The Hangover Part II

    A repetitive bore that just treads water from the first film. On top of that, it's just downright dark and cruel for no real reason, other than I guess Todd Phillips trying to make the film 'edgier' than the first film, completely sucking out the small amount of joy the first film had to offer. Insultingly lazy in every regard.

    God, I can’t wait to see this film again just so I can write a full-blown analysis of it. This is far and away the best film I’ve seen all year; it surpassed my high expectations and went even beyond those. It’s a complete 2 hour descent into pure madness and I was with it every second of the way. Pattinson is incredible but Dafoe’s performance is on a whole other god-tier level that no one else can reach. Eggers’…

  • Artemis Fowl

    Artemis Fowl

    ½

    A complete and utter disaster in every way. I have never read the book series this is based on but I feel so bad for all the fans of this series who were wanting a great adaptation, I honestly feel very offended about something I have absolutely no emotional connection to. Everything in this feels so cobbled together and rushed. The worldbuilding and the plot are so vaguely defined and unengaging, completely failing to give us an ounce of reason…
