    Mid90s

    ★★★★½

    Jonah Hill perfectly captures the skateboarding culture of the 90s in his directorial debut. More than that, it’s a story about friendship and growing up. This was amazing and I can’t wait to see it again.

    Hacksaw Ridge

    ★★★★★

    Hacksaw Ridge, the latest from Mel Gibson, is a masterful piece of filmmaking. Based on a true story, this film recounts the life of Desmond Doss, a medal of honor recipient who refused to bear arms during WWII. Although the film is centered around a non-violent figure, there is no shortage of bone-chilling war sequences. I've always considered Andrew Garfield an underrated and underutilized talent. He delivers an incredible performance here and hopefully people will start to see what he's…

  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina

    ★★★★½

    An outstanding, thought provoking film that's centered around the advancement of artificial intelligence. Ex Machina is stylish, well-acted and quite intense. It's also very unsettling, which is exactly what I want in a sci-fi thriller. I was so impressed with the performances, particularly Oscar Isaac, who I thought was absolutely brilliant in his role. It's a complex character that not anyone could pull off, but it's a performance that will stick with me. This is such a refreshing, smart film that mixes many different emotions. A fantastic sci-fi experience.
