• Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★½

    Exactly what you'd want from a Chip N Dale satire made by the Lonely Island guys.

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★½

    Not funny enough to make up for the lackluster story and acting.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★

    I knew I would like the tone and direction of the movie coming from Eggers, that was a given. I was surprised by the narrative and it's bend on the revenge tale. It wasn't revolutionary, but it was fresh enough that it kept me guessing in the third act.

    Though Skarsgard wasn't exceptional, his portayal of a viking felt more authentic than others I've seen. Anya-Taylor Joy's character was little more than a love interest, but she was able to elevate it.

    The supernatural elements were the most jarring parts. Some were visually stunning and others showed some of the budget limitations.

  • Ambulance

    Ambulance

    ★★

    Michael Bay did something I don't think I've ever seen before. He explicitly reference not one, but TWO of his own movies during this movie. I'm also pretty sure this is the first time he got to use a new drone while filming. The few times he uses it during transitions outside of buildings is some of the most disorienting shots I've seen in a while.

    Consecrated my new TV by watching this.

  • First Reformed

    Getting hyped for Easter.

  • The Lost City

    The Lost City

    ★★★½

    Had to take terrible dump about 20 minutes into the movie. One stall had no toilet paper and the other couldn't lock. Went to the other bathroom. One stall out of service and smelled like absolute shit. Other was occupied. Luckily the last stall locked and had toilet paper. Channing Tatum was funny.

  • Turning Red

    Turning Red

    ★★★½

    Very forgettable.

  • X

    ★★★

    Once the movie took off, it never really hit the level I was looking for.

  • Scream

    Scream

    ★½

    The minute to minute dialogue in this was atrocious. While the series is famous for commenting on not just the genre but also itself, this movie felt uninspired about everything it had to say. It felt like a person on reddit who thinks they can cleverly summarize the whole series with a neat bow. The original is maybe my favorite classic horror film and I really enjoyed the 2nd one. The 3rd has its moments and the 4th was eye…

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Matt Reeves managed to tell a Batman story like there never has been before on screen. All the comparisons to this and other noir, crime dramas are accurate. He was able to tell a compelling narrative that focused on Batman's less familiar moniker "The World's Greatest Detective", without sacrificing the action and set pieces. Either through the comics, animated series, or the Arkham games you can tell that at the heart of this series, it is about a damaged individual…

  • I Want You Back

    I Want You Back

    ★★★½

    More heartfelt and funny than I expected. Love Charlie Day and he delivered on exactly what I would want from him. Jenny Slate's humor often doesn't work for me, but I thought she was really good in this. While this isn't groundbreaking in the rom-com genre, it was able to distance itself from the typical formulaic tropes enough to feel fresh and entertaining.

    Hot tub scene was the best.
