    2020 X-Mas Marathon

    If your soul was a candle, Derek Cianfrance is the dude wetting his fingertips and pinching the wick.

    Probably not the best movie to watch late on Christmas Eve, but then again, this is the kind of thing you want to sit with for a while.

    Riz Ahmed and Olivia Cooke both deliver standout performances, and the sound mixing was really crucial and executed perfectly.

    I figured the whole "sound of metal" thing was referring to the…

    2020 X-Mas Marathon

    Halfway through this film I sent this text to my friends:

    "How much do you wanna bet this movie ends with an aerial shot of Vin driving along a coastline with that woman in the passenger seat?"

    I also promised to rate this 5 stars if I was right. Watching the last minute of the film unfold into my exact prediction down to the letter made my whole year.

    Even though I thought I remembered this story, it was still incredibly unsettling to see the true extent of his crimes. For some reason I had minimized it in my memory, but the sheer amount of bodies they removed from that crawlspace is pretty sickening. I also never knew that many of them are still unclaimed to this day.

    Alison Brie's first screenplay is ambitious and original. There is a massive tone shift throughout, but I was hooked the entire time. A lot of people seem to be rating this badly because it "doesn't know what it wants to be" but I disagree. I think it just wants to be a bunch of different things, and I'm here for it.

    The characters started out as being instantly lovable, but what is at first an entertaining comedy slowly reveals…
