  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★½

    Many "horror" films released today attempt to scare audiences by utilizing jump scares that startle the audience for all of 5 seconds. This makes for many of these films to be forgetful since none of the actual imagery or characters are scary, just startling. Hereditary avoids this formula, opting for a much more developed horror story that will stick with audiences long after they leave the theatre.

    This film lingers in the mind because of a few strong elements that…

  • Swiss Army Man

    Swiss Army Man

    ★★★★★

    Swiss Army Man is a movie best summarized by a quote from the directors: "The first fart will make you laugh, the last fart will make you cry."

    Hachi: A Dog's Tale

    ★★★

    I was surprised at how poorly written Hachi: A Dog's tale was. This film felt like a made-for-TV Hallmark movie that was written by a 50-year-old. The dialog and many of the scenes were very cliche and stale (ex: the skunk scene), making it hard not to roll your eyes while watching. The writing was also very emotionally manipulative, using a puppy's cuteness and other overly dramatic elements to play the audience. Another one of the major issues I have…

    ★★★★★

    Got the opportunity to see the 4k restoration at the Alamo Drafthouse. It was the greatest theatre experience I have ever had. The film looks stunning in 4k. All I could say was WOW...
