  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    Watched at a Drive-In Movie Theater!

    The Invisible Man is incredibly satisfying; everything works together to build dread and paranoia (editing, characters, acting, moments). I've seen some complain about the pacing, but I was pleasantly surprised as to how fast this movie felt. I was scared, my mouth dropped a few times, and some genuine twists and turns that shocked me. What more do you want from a horror film?

    One of the best performances of the quarantine-year in Elizabeth Moss, and a great followup to Upgrade from Leigh.

    "You lived to die another day."

    Oh, Pierce. You deserve so much better than this, I'm sorry.

    I'm not a harsh movie watcher. I find things to love and ways to have fun even with the worst films, and Die Another Day was a blast to watch with my friends. But as a film, this is an absolute mess that continually shocks you…

  • Licence to Kill

    Licence to Kill

    ★★★★

    James Bond Ranked

    Film number 18 of 26 on my Quarantine goal of watching all Bond films.

    Licence to Kill is a breath of fresh air. After having watched 18 in just a few weeks, many are starting to blend together...but rest assured: Licence to Kill will not be lost in the noise.

    Dalton's performance is dark, edgy, and unpredictable. The action is violent, explosive, and gorgeous (shoutouts to the warehouse fight and the bar fight). The villain is less…
