  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place


    Plot-holes aside, this movie was fuckin visionary. I can’t believe I put off watching this for so damn long.

  • Overlord



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

    Reanimator meets Inglorious Basterds. Absolutely fucking fantastic.

  • The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


    These vignettes were fantastic storytelling. I expect nothing short of delicious from the Cohen Brothers 😋

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite


    Oh man what a phenomenal film. So many great lines. My personal favourite:

    Some wounds do not close; I have many such.

  • Suspiria



    Visually stunning. Deeply disturbing. At first I believed the 6-act framework Guadagnino explored would be tiresome, but instead it made the denouement all the more delicious.

    The entire film echoes plenty of parallels. Without revealing too much — there lives a deep division, chaos, and paranoia in Berlin. Berliners are forced to waltz their own odd rituals between East and West in 1977. Threats are in the air. A German dance company is forced to deal with their own set…

  • Halloween



    A genuine treat to behold. If you’re a fan of the Halloween anthology, you will not be disappointed in the least.

  • Mandy



    It’s fucking amazing. Nicholas Cage delivers. Does not disappoint. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen. ‬

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade


    An excellent portrayal of middle school in America, an even better introspective into what’s it like growing up embroiled in the Information Age.

  • Incredibles 2

    Incredibles 2


    Well worth the wait.

  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One


    I had a lot of fun watching this film. Spielberg doesn't disappoint at all. While he follows his normal formulaic path in filmmaking in Ready Player One, he proceeds to give the gamer-generation a tale of bravery that can exist simultaneously in The Oasis and IRL.

  • Hereditary



    A powerful and unrelenting barrage of catastrophe and imminent dread. Utterly horrifying. Easily the best horror film of the year.
