    Togo

    ★★★½

    Weird to see a cute dog movie with any form of style or heart.

    A Dog’s Story, A Dog’s Purpose, Marley and Me... all of them feel a bit bare-bones (pun intended).

    But not Togo. Togo is shot very well with some great action sequences and some genuine performances (I mean, you can’t go wrong with Willem Dafoe)

    There are flaws here and there (bad CG, odd camera angles, scenes that you just can’t get into), but those flaws get…

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★★

    This will be a very important film for a lot of people. People affected by divorces or break ups of any kind. Scarlett Johansson and Noah Baumbach have been through divorces. Of course they can make a film about it.

    The writing, as always, is so human and real. A Baumbach film is built up on it’s writing and it delivers in this film. It’s all natural and doesn’t sound artificial.

    This film was even well shot. It was never…

    Lars and the Real Girl

    ★★★★

    Such a unique, little film.  A weird plot with some genuine performances (Ryan Gosling being the peak), some cool color palettes, and a whole lot to talk about.

    Not perfect, but it’s something worth watching.

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★

    I was ready to say that Evil Dead was the superb movie in all rights after the first hour, but then the ending kicked in and it was the most glorious mayhem.

    I respect this movie, but I’d probably still watch Evil Dead over Texas Chainsaw (but I’ll probably watch the ending on youtube a lot)

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★★½

    Let’s set the scene. In late August, I hear of a Breaking Bad movie. I had heard amazing things about the show, so I might as well watch the show up to the movie. The pilot hooked me (like any good pilot should do) and by the middle of Season One...I was glued to the screen. I watched this amazing show unfold and it was all I could think about (Sorry if I told you how much I love this…

  • Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

    Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

    ★★★★½

    For what started as a background movie, this movie turned into a varied level of the film craft in a way that is hard to explain through text (if you would like to, talk with me outside of Letterboxd, though the thoughts weren’t as profound as this review made them seem)

    Just know that it’s a lovely movie with a great Gene Wilder and a lot of love.  It’s in a state similar to The Princess Bride.  Perfect and fun, but I didn’t watch it early enough to absolutely dig into.
