    “NOW THERE’S A BATMAN.”

    A gorgeous vision of the comic book icon. The very first shot of Gotham in the rain literally made my jaw drop. It immediately establishes the city as suffocating and cramped despite how massive it is. A city of rats and sad men slowly drowning in the sea of misery and corruption they’ve made for themselves. Robert Pattison’s Batman is the emo boy that Matt Reeves’ Gotham City has created and deserves. Bruce Wayne really is…

    DUNE IT TO DEATH

    Immense. This new vision of Frank Herbert's world lives and breathes on the big screen. It feels like the Villeneuve chose the IMAX format solely for the sandworm money shot that towers above both characters and audience; and it is justified.

    As an adaptation, I really liked it. Being a recent fan of the book I think it would satisfy most readers. The cast is carefully curated and they all do fantastic jobs. It says a…

    ★★★

    Kind of frustrating honestly. Director Edgar Wright is obviously a huge movie nerd and he’s able to express his fandom in really eloquent and often not so blatantly obvious ways. So when he comes out with his 60s-70s thriller throwback that’s an homage to old Giallo flicks, I can’t help but feel like he knows what he’s talking about.

    But I dunno, have you seen this movie?

    The first half I really enjoyed. Both McKenzie and Taylor-Joy put in fantastic…

    Yep looks like a teenager made this with her friends and family.

    But she did it.

    I could watch this several times a year despite being one of the most effective horror movies of all time. It’s a bit of a comfort film. 

    John Carpenter’s most technically impressive film (he used that big Universal Studios budget well). His worldview is that underneath horrific circumstances we will turn on each other first. He’s like, not a prophet or anything it’s just the way the world works. Real good COVID watch too, “we should prepare our own meals.…

    ★★★

    “NOSTALGIA NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE”

    A science fiction neo-noir about memory. Hugh Jackman plays Nick who is our grizzled veteran of the nondescript future war that occurred when the oceans rose and swallowed up Miami. He’s our hard boiled detective who searches for clues in the past through a Minority Report style interrogation technique, allowing access to people’s memories. Rebecca Ferguson is the dame in the red dress that came through his door one day and changed his life…
