    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★★

    Hey Guys, um, it’s Jack with, like, another film review.
    Bo Burnham has been a creative idol of mine for many years so when I found he was making the jump from Stand-Up to Film, I was very excited to see what he had up his sleeve.
    Straight out of the bat with a writing and directorial debut, Burnham has created one of the most real and authentic coming of age stories in years. (Better than Lady Bird.)
    It’s like…

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Mission: Accomplished.
    I thought Rogue Nation was close to a perfect modern action film. Since Mission: Impossible III, each film has outdone its predecessor.
    Fallout is no exception.
    This is exactly what you want from a spy film in every sense of the word.
    The cast are brilliant, the plot comes with enough genuine shocks, twists and turns to keep you on your toes and the action sequences...
    Each singular action sequence ALONE is worth your ticket price. Practically I…

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★

    Joker's Adventure in Wonderland
    One of the best character pieces I have ever seen.
    There isn't much of a plot to this, but that's not a bad thing. The entire cast do a sensational job with Nicholson and Fletcher standing out amongst the rest as McMurphy and Nurse Ratched do battle.
    It's a emotional ride fueled by your hatred for Nurse Ratched.
    Thought-provoking and heartwarming capturing a subject that is rarely shown with such scary realism. A film that truly deserves all of the academy awards it won. If you haven't seen this, get it watched.

    Spider-Man 3

    ★★★

    The Irritating Spider-Man
    So... Spider-Man 3. How does a film series go from having one of the 'best' to the 'worst' superhero films?
    Well it wasn't as bad as I was expecting... No, that does not make it a good film. But at least when the wacky moments like Peter's dancing happened, I knew I was supposed to laugh. When in the previous installments, I couldn't tell if a moment was supposed to be comedic or just unique filmmaking.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    We Weren't Ready.
    What a journey Marvel has brought us on over the past 10 years culminating in the most ballsy blockbuster in years.
    It's a sprint from start to finish with moments of humour, adventure and intense action.
    Everyone gets a surprising amount of screen time despite the large cast. The character interactions, some for the first time, being some of the most satisfying and hilarious moments for fans.
    MASSIVE Shoutout to Josh Brolin for being the most threatening…

  • Annihilation

    Annihilation

    ★★★★★

    Simultaneously Terrifying and Beautiful.
    I am still waiting for the day I get to see this on the big screen but for now, Netflix will do.
    I love that there are filmmakers like Garland that are out there that can make films as unique as these and stand by their creation (even when the studio won't.)
    Films that melt your mind and are this cleverly written are a joy to watch and that is helped by the fact that every…
