    The Post

    ★★★★

    The shots and cinematography are definitely on par with Spielberg’s works. 

    Streep and Hanks bring grey performances. While we get spot lighters such as Odenkirk. 

    The story is great, pacing is off at times. 
    But the ending leaves you almost wanting more.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    In a sense, Midsommar takes what Hereditary did and does the exact opposite. Hereditary took the dark, quick shot, jump scares, and over all frightening. Midsommar takes the opposite approach and gives us bright, in the open, completely disturbing with slow reveal.

    The cinematography here is compeling and on point.
    But overall the film is disturbing and unnerving.

    The last 45 minutes or so are absolutely nuts.

    Also, absolutely great performances from Florence Pugh and I'm excited to see her in many things moving forward.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★

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

    As a long time fan, who felt almost fatigued up until a few months ago, I feel satisfied after watching STAR WARS THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. 

    I’ve heard many bash the new trilogy, but I’ve come to love it.  
    Episode 9 helps the Skywalker saga come full circle. 

    This one gave us lightsaber battles that were honestly some of the best of the saga. 
    A certain duel on a certain wreckage reminded me of Anakin and Obi-Wan’s Mustafar duel. …

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★★

    Wow. 
    So. Good. 
    John Krasinski took an idea and ran in the perfect direction with it. 
    From start to finish I was fully captivated. 
    The full immersion of the realism of the sound on the production side was perfect. So many technical aspects that helped carry it. Such an emotional grab. A great creature thriller. A perfect thriller/suspense film. Some might even say ground breaking. 


    And possibly my favorite film thus far this year. 
    This film did in an hour in half what many try to do it two hours.
    This gives me even higher hopes in John Krasinski as a writer and director.
