  • Paddington 2

    Paddington 2

    ★★★★★

    Arguably the best thing to come out of the film industry in this decade, possibly century depending on how much of a Paddington shill you are.

    Paddington 2 improves on basically every minor setback held by its predecessor with a level of humbleness & love that few films can exude even with the maximum amount of effort. Every minute of this feels like a hug, the biggest one you could imagine.

    It's funny, packed with fantastic characters, a gloriously cheesy villain,…

    Blue Velvet

    ★★★½

    Pretty embarrassed to admit this was only my first viewing, but guess it's better to get around to finishing Lynch's filmography now rather than later. I can see why this is as iconic as it is to a lot of people, it introduced many people for Lynch's signature style, presents a brilliant glance at the mystery lurking below everyday suburban life, a neat twist on the standard neo-noir mystery narrative & a theme song that has been replaying over in my…

    Excuse me, why was this so good?

    I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I certainly wasn't expecting this to be as fun, as witty, and as brutally entertaining as it ended up. While I feel most sequels to the 1996 classic are kind of entertaining, this is the first follow-up that I truly loved and felt took a direction that paid tribute to the very creator of this series while also finally moving it forward. On top of…

    Don't Look Up

    An interesting concept bogged down by a bloated runtime and surface-level writing that isn't just incredibly corny, but somehow completely out-of-touch. The story is so misbalanced that it ends up losing you completely. With a slightly more contained plot that doesn't try to jumble over 100 different themes, I could see this working, as it is, it's a giant mess.

    What's worse in my opinion is the editing, which has got to be the worst from a major release in…

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★★½

    I know what you're going to say, I can hear it already.

    ''Underdeveloped characters''

    ''Stupid character motivations''

    ''Terrible dialogue''

    ''Silly plot elements that are way too over-the-top''

    ''Everything is far too excessive''

    ''Why is there so much CGI?''

    Well kids, welcome to your first Toho Godzilla movie!

    Godzilla: King of Monsters is basically the classic Toho films that inspired this epic creature coming back to life in front of our very eyes. As a long-time fan of those films, I…

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★★

    I adored every, single minute of this.

    A raw, grounded, charming but incredibly heartbreaking analysis about the complexity of love & relationships, particularly during a divorce.

    Just some brief advice, much like The Irishman, you shouldn't miss this in theatres if you have the chance. Seeing it in 35mm was a brilliant experience that Netflix just can't replicate.

    Marriage Story does something very special. It takes standard, everyday scenarios that an endless number of people experience & beautifully manages to skew the…
