    Wildlife

    ★★★★½

    Wildlife is a great experience that blends its symbolism with realism in a way few films pull off. 

    “You know what they call trees in a forest fire? Fuel. Do you know what they call trees up when a fire goes by? They call them the standing dead.”

    Most films that have heavy symbolism usually fall into a trap of focusing solely on the meaning of it all, and forget to be realistic. Don’t get me wrong, I am a…

    Get Out

    ★★★★

    “Believe me, the irony of being a blind art dealer isn't lost on me.”

    Okay so honesty time, I used to hate on this movie a bunch. It wasn’t the message or the actors, or even the director. It was how the movie was executed, and how I didn’t believe it reached any of the goals it set out to complete. Upon my rewatch I found that it’s actually quite good and that I may need to put my foot…

    Hello! I have seriously missed the pancakes outta all of you! A lot has been going on lately and my brain has just been too insane in the membrane to keep up. But oh I have I missed you beautiful Letterboxd people (shout-out to the homies NutshellReviews, and JasonTheFeatureCreature). 

    I have watched a bunch of movies lately that I didn’t write my word vomit about, but this was TOO good not…

    The Voices

    ★★★★½

    Jerry *crying* - “Tomorrow we are gonna do a conga”

    The Voices is a movie that if given the budget, equipment, and talent would be something that I would end up making. The monstrosity that I would create wouldn’t end up being a fraction of how good this movie is, but I feel like this movie gets me. Well that kinda sounds bad, I’m not a psychotic murder who talks to his British cat. It’s atmospheric, legitimately hilarious (without trying…

  • American Psycho

    American Psycho

    ★★★★

    “I got a new business card”


    American Physico is a character study in its purest form. It’s all about developing the main character and doesn’t focus on plot or side characters too much. 

    Christian Bale is extraordinary. It’s almost like he is playing the character of a robot who is trying to impersonate the idea of an American that he got from plugging into the internet. So basically Ultron. But only if Ultron was highly moisturized and a touch more stabby.

  • An American Werewolf in London

    An American Werewolf in London

    ★★★★½

    “I will not be threatened by a walking meat loaf!”

    I don’t fully know what I was expecting walking into this movie, but it definitely was not the movie I though it was going to be. An American Werewolf in London is a genuinely funny and enjoyable movie all around. It almost feels like an 80’s A24 movie. It also had some pretty effective jump scares, and I’m in pain.

    First things first it does the werewolf thing right. I…

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★★★½

    “It’s not what’s outside that counts but what’s on the inside.. the diamond in the rough”

    Aladdin is definitely a diamond, but one that’s not necessarily in the rough. It’s more like it’s forcibly wedged between two other diamonds. Aladdin was released between the years of Beauty and the Beast and some other film no one has ever heard of called “Lion King” 😉. So you could say that it has a lot to live up to being sandwiched between…

  • Bad Times at the El Royale

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    ★★★½

    “First time at the El Royale?”

    Bad Times at the El Royale has been one of my most anticipated movies of the year. I was looking forward to the great cast turning into lovable characters, snappy music scenes, Chris Hemsworth’s wierdly perfect abs, and a very intriguing setting. What I got sure were those things, I mean I think so? 

    So let me just say that it was a pretty good movie. It was stylish and the characters were varied…

    ________________________________________________________

    What makes a biopic great is strangely not about what the person did. In a genre solely devoted to the actions of a person you’d think that would be the case. There are two things that give this particular format of movies, an important place in our theaters and on our screens. 

    One of those things is the answer to the question: how did this person do it? This…

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★

    “Don't listen to what I say. Listen to what I want.”

    When I first got to the end of this movie, I was genuinely confused by what I just watched.
    I was not prepared for the absurdist playground this movie was written to be, and it took me awhile to wrap my brain around it. But once I did, and I made sense of all the crazy; the movie really worked for me.

    Okay so yes, this movie is politically…

  • Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

    Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

    ★★★

    “There was a Green Lantern movie. Uh. But we don't talk about that.” - Green Lantern 

    Teen Titans Go to the Movies is one of those movies that totally defied people’s expectations. I remember the MAJOR backlash this movie got from fans when it was first announced. But what we have here is a super solid kids movie full of charm, laughter and a great message. 

    The best part of this movie is how it doesn’t take itself seriously. It…

    ★★★★

    “Well hello Mr Fancy Pants”


    I was super surprised at the beginning of this movie. I was like wow, so they dialed down the crazy for a more linear storyline and grounded character development. Then it went absolutely off the wall bonkers and I completely loved it. 

    I feel like these movies nailed the whole wacky horror feel completely on the head. They have created a tone that not many have been able to achieve since. It’s absolutely eclectic to…
