    Bad Times at the El Royale

    ★★★

    A good example of a mediocre movie with a great trailer. I don't think I was walking into this with the wrong expectations, mind you, I really liked the trailer but if I was expecting a movie i was just expecting something thrilling or suspenseful, but the movie is really none of that.

I do not know how to review this movie, so excuse me if I don't go into humongous detail here, for A Clockwork Orange is perhaps one of the most thought-provoking yet downright violent and vulgar films I have seen in a very, very long time, a movie that is 2 hours and 15 minutes long yet feels way shorter than…
