  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

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

    There's so much to be said about Fury Road.
    Max is a loner. A wanderer. Something terrible happened in his past. He let so many others die. Max has to carry that weight on his shoulders for the rest of his life.
    When he gets captured he needs to escape to save himself, where he eventually runs into Furiosa. At first, he has no interest in helping her. He just needs a way out. He sees the strength and determination…

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    Shame! they said. Non-Canon, they said! Rian Johnson ruined Star Wars, they said.

    Guys, did you even watch The Last Jedi? Because what I just witnessed was the best Star Wars experience since Empire Strikes Back.
    Rian Johnson directs the shit out of the movie. He puts all the pieces into place. Rian said it himself. As the middle chapter in the Trilogy, he wanted to focus on the characters and story. And he does it all with ease. Every…

  • Leave No Trace

    Leave No Trace

    ★★★★½

    We really do need more great films by women.

    LEAVE NO TRACE is a quiet yet haunting film about a man suffering from PTSD while trying to raise his daughter. It's clear this man has issues and and he does what he can.

    Thomasin McKenzie is absolutely amazing as the daughter just trying to adapt and makes things work, and she is a treasure of a young actress. Ben Foster completely disappears in the role of Will, the father, and is also fantastic.
    Leave No Trace is a great watch and should be checked out.

  • The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    ★★★★

    I'll catch ya tomorrow, Mr. Pocket.

    When creating an anthology, it's important to try to balance each story to make them all interesting, and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is not immune to this.
    Some of the stories are individual masterpieces, weighed down by other lackluster stories. With that, I will rank each story individually:
    1. The Gal Who Got Rattled
    2. All Gold Canyon
    3. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
    4. Meal Ticket
    5. The Mortal Remains
    6. Near…

  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice

    ★★★★★

    "You're going to want to get good and fucked up before this meal."

    In this psycho-noir epic tale, Paul Thomas Anderson delivers a thick cloud of deep dialogue and intense performances than entrances it's viewers.
    The narrative by Joanna Newsom is wonderful and a welcome addition to the style.
    As usual, Jonny Greenwood's score is spot on with the overall tone.

    Paul Thomas Anderson proves again that he is one of the best working today, and Inherent Vice is a unique addition to his arsenal.
