    The Myth of the American Sleepover

    ★★★★½

    Now this is my kind of coming of age. There isn't any like it I've ever seen. A refreshment of nostalgia. An adolescent, pubescent slice of white suburban insecurity. It's difficult to put into words the insurmountable strangeness of the film. It's a straightforward script to be clear, but the effictiveness of its simplicity, the natural performances from each character, and malaise of daily life is captured beautifully.

    Us

    ★★★★★

    I refuse to believe I'm the only fucking guy who thinks Get Out is way too highly regarded, and that meanwhile Us is The Godfather of sophomore features. Lupita creating a new slasher villain right before our fucking eyes. That couldn't possibly be a hot take.

    Inglourious Basterds

    ★★★★★

    It's hard to determine the best Tarantino film, but this must rank in his top 3. Inglorious Basterds is a rip-roaring time with nazi scalpings, exploding nazi's, bullet riddled nazi's, badass jews, and only a wish amongst everyone that Hitler actually met his demise the way he does in this film.

  • Prince of Darkness

    Prince of Darkness

    ★★★½

    Rounding out all notable Carpenter flicks, Prince of Darkness seems the closest Carpenter ever came to making his own The Exorcist and I'm here for it. It's got a brooding tension that ratchets up great. Keeping with the still, wide shots, Carpenter is fantastic at delivering imagery that sticks. The ending is bananas and as one of his few films that delve deeply in body horror, this is easily his best.

  • Pieces of a Woman

    Pieces of a Woman

    ★★★★

    Pieces of a Woman is a tender portrait of a woman slowly fading into depression, with the best performance I've seen this year in Vanessa Kirby.

  • Eight Legged Freaks

    Eight Legged Freaks

    ★★★

    There are sometimes no better movies to watch with cold beer and something that resembles a smoking apparatus than hoky creature b-flicks. The spiders are big, the town is small, and David Arquette coming off the Scream movement keeps this film fun and energetic enough it’s difficult not to mildly enjoy.
