    Paddington 2

    What a delight of a film about the innate lessons our families pass onto us and how we can share those teachings with the world through a little bit of effort (and a whole lot of marmalade). Been a hell of a weekend for me and good lord did I need this kindness. Thanks Paddington.

  • Life Itself

    Life Itself

    Joins Annihilation as a 2018 release featuring a tragic flashback where Oscar Isaac and his wife say “hey” to each other. Both scenes made me cry but one because it was good and the other because it was wildly manipulative. 

    This is the tearjerker equivalent of a horror movie stuffed with constant jump scares. Sure, you got the reaction you wanted from me. But that’s pretty easy when you just spend two hours reminding me that everyone I love is going to die.

    Anyway, Antonio Banderas somehow deserves an Oscar for this thing, I can’t explain it he just does.

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    The Cloverfield series was my personal Star Wars. This is my prequel trilogy.

  • Everybody Wants Some!!

    Everybody Wants Some!!

    Watching this already feels like returning to an old favorite. I think Linklater's true skill is making everything feel like the precipice of something else, the transitions in life captured as unassuming moments.
