    Another Round

    ★★★★

    The stupid smile I had on my face during the last two minutes of this film... seeing that ending in a theater with an audience was transcendental. Crazy how a film that deals with the highs and lows of alcoholism ends on such an inspiring and triumphant note - a true celebration of life and youth if there ever was one. I couldn't stop thinking about it on the bus ride home.

    I'd never seen a film so comprehensive in…

    ★★★★½

    Look how easy that was. I guess you just had to think about it in the right way.

    I've been looking forward to the day I saw this ever since it was announced, and somehow managed to avoid reading anything about it (or even seeing the trailer) all these months. I grinded through college work all week knowing I'd finally be able to sit down and watch this peacefully in a theater on Friday. I'm so glad it didn't disappoint.

    Those Who Wish Me Dead

    ★★★

    Blah blah blah, Taylor Sheridan's worst, blah blah blah, way too irrelevant and overdone... but honestly I thought it thrives on its simplicity. Feels like something straight out of the 90's, worry-free and best enjoyed with a handful of popcorn at a time (alas, that can't happen during a pandemic...). Haven't seen Angelina Jolie kick ass in so long and that automatically makes this a must-watch. Or at least a back-up plan for a lazy Sunday matinée. Take your pick.

    Medina Senghore easily takes MVP. though. Also, @Hollywood, please cast Nicholas Hoult in more villainous roles.

    By this point, the only thing I care about in these films is the mega soap-opera twist at the end and I'm afraid Saw V DIDN'T DELIVER.
