    The One I Love

    ★★★★

    There's a charm to this delightfully strange comedy-drama-romance flick on Netflix. It’s a film about a couple, Sophie and Ethan, played by Elizabeth Moss and Mark Duplass, working to save their marriage. They decided to head out to a private vacation home for a weekend retreat in hopes to restore and rebuild their relationship. And then they stumble upon an unexpectedly unique ’Twilight Zone’ esque dilemma. The way Sophie and Ethan reacted to this intriguing situation felt genuine to me. Each had their…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    I like how this was such a contrast from Ari’s first film Hereditary, the ambiance was dark and grim and in this film, it’s bright and cheery. Yet, he still managed to make me feel uneasy through his storytelling. You basically follow these kids, mainly Dani, who travels to Sweden after a tragic event, to a festival in the middle of nowhere. Slowly things start to turn and they are placed in uncomfortable situations where we, as an audience, felt…

    On the Count of Three

    ★★★½

    This was a bleak comedy-drama about friendship and mental health. Jerrod Carmichael and Christopher Abbott star as Val and Kevin, two childhood friends who make a suicide pact and spend their last day together. Actor and director Carmichael gave a good performance. Abbott has been excellent in everything I’ve seen him in (Possesser, Piercing). I was impressed with how they handled the sensitive subject. The dry humor and drama worked most for me however, when other characters came in and…

    Umma

    ★½

    Packed with a lot of cliches from other horrors, this mystery horror did not bring anything new to the table. Sandra Oh stars as Amanda, who lives with her daughter Chrissy (Fivel Stewart) at a secluded farm, and isolates themselves from most of the world because Amanda becomes sick when she’s near electricity. When it was revealed to Amanda her estranged mother had passed away and received her remains, her past begins to haunt her. Oh, Stewart and Dermot Mulroney were…

    V/H/S/94

    ★★★

    The V/H/S series returns with a fourth found-footage anthology last year. I don't have Shudder so I just rented it. There were five segments. In the first segment, the wrap-around story was probably the weakest. It’s schlocky and dull. The second segment was called “Storm Drain”, which was short and sweet. It’s effective in execution. The third one titled “The Empty Wake”, directed by Simon Barrett (director of The Guest) trudges. By the time we got to the scare, I…

    The Unforgivable

    ★★½

    The Unforgivable is a drama thriller that's set in a classic hard-boiled world but could have done a lot more. Sandra Bullock stars as Ruth, a woman who served her time for a violent crime, get out early on good behavior, and renters society after 20 years. She tries to put her life back together while looking for the sister she left behind when she was incarcerated, but the world refuses to forgive her. Perfect title. We got a great performance…
