    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

    Star Trek

    ★★★½

    "Lens flare the movie" or "how to introduce nerdy sci-fi to beginners".

  • Falling Down

    Falling Down

    ★★★½

    What a special movie. The film portraits both sides of bending over too much and standing up for yourself too much. In the end it is clear that the middle road is the best but the further doesn't harm anyone. It courageous to have such and anti hero in you film and I really liked it for doing that.

    The reviews saying that it is problematic to follow a racist douchedon't understand that this is all about him being delusional and thinking he is the good guy, while we understand that he is not.

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★½

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

    This reinvigorated my love for MCU after a bunch of big misses. After the first half hour I was sad to see that everything was just as silly and off key as the horrible Far from home. But then (after a really forced visit at Doctor Strange's house) the movie turns a corner and ends up being the best thing happening to the MCU since Endgame.

    Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina are amazing. Garfield and Macguire are both miles better…

  • Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two

    Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two

    ★★★½

    Still beautiful and eerie but it didn't live up to the potential of part one.
