    Life

    ★★★½

    Simple and effective.

    Before dismissing this as just an Alien ripoff, consider how bad the Alien franchise has gotten and how much cleaner a sucessor to the original this is than something like Alien Covenant.

  • Batman: Hush

    Batman: Hush

    ★★★½

    Haven't read the comic so I'm not disappointed in this not being like that. I do think this was really entertaining. The plot was also quite interesting and different from other batman stories while still being true to the character

  • Point Break

    Point Break

    ★★★½

    This film is something else. I'm not sure who I'm actually rooting for. The feds seem like douches and Pappas and Utah are incompetent as hell. I do love Keanu's energy and Swayzys surfer swagger and the pacing is quite good. A weird classic but a classic nontheless.

  • Avatar

    Avatar

    ★★★½

    People need to relax and just have fun with this. It's not a masterpiece but it gets so much hate that it shouldn't. I'm not sure I need the sequels but the original is fun if you let go of your pretentiousness for a second.

  • Heat

    Heat

    ★★★½

    I actually enjoyed Collateral more than this. Perhaps because it had a simpler premise and a fewer gallery of characters. It took me an hour to get really get into Heta but it ended up being great. The main characters are nuanced and really, really worth watching the movie for.

  • The Land Before Time

    The Land Before Time

    ★★★½

    The beautiful animations and great score still holds up to this day. The rest is meant for children during the 90's when everything was slower.
    It was a nostalgic trip down memory lane and I get why it was so popular back then. Today it's kinda clumsily told and feels too long at only 69 minutes.

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★½

    A slow burner. In the beginning you're excited about aliens and stuff. Then you start getting invested in global politics and linguistics. In the end you find yourself confused about time as a concept and deeply frustrated by the knowledge that we're all going to die. A beautiful film with a beautiful message.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★½

    Brilliant acting and I can't enough of Washington and Pattinson. Also great camerawork, directing and really cool set pieces and action scenes reminding everyone that Nolan stould get to make a bond trilogy.

    However, watching the second time around it really hammered home to me that I need a better relationship to the protagonist and because there isn't one, this is left as a cool experiment and not a film I can rewatch over and over like Inception.

    It's still a cool experiment and I can't help but love Nolan for trying it.

  • Moana

    Moana

    ★★★½

    Simple, respectful and kinda woke-ish. Also fun and wholesome.

  • War for the Planet of the Apes

    War for the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★½

    Probably the best of the trilogy. Restarting cesars arc and giving him a newfound hatred for humans was a good choice. If Rise was 12 monkeys meets shawshank redemption, this is apocalypse now meets 12 years a slave.
    I don't know why "bad ape" was in this other than being the Jar Jar Binks of the apes... He didn't do anything other than cringe comic relief.
    Overall a worthy end to the trilogy

  • The Empty Man

    The Empty Man

    ★★★½

    This is a treat! A mixture between The Ring, Midsummar and a classic detective story, this was so much better and more interesting than I imagined. The first 20 minutes act as a prologue and could've been an entire horror film in itself. It is wellmade and reaks of confidence. Then the movie turns a corner and almost makes you think for a second that it's gpnna be yet another tean horror film (think It Follows). But then comes a…

  • Star Trek
