    ★★★½

    Netflix's Mudbound, a tale set in the post WWII South shows us a portrait of the racism and class struggles that loom large in American history.  It's so ugly and rooted in evil.  The sad part is, these things still exist today in varying forms and extremes.

    Mudbound is one of the better Netflix Original films I've seen.  Carey Mulligan may deserve a Best Supporting Actress nod as may Mary J. Blige who was unrecognizable as Florence Jackson.  So unrecognizable in fact I didn't know it was her until the credits rolled.

    War for the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★

    2017 to this point, has kinda been the year of the overrated for me.  Baby Driver, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are all 2017 blockbuster films that had a ton of hype and critical praise that all left me feeling underwhelmed.  Now you can add War for the Planet of the Apes to that list.  Don't get me wrong, I liked all of these films to the tune of at least 3 stars.  I…

    Fucking brilliant!

    Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon basically steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
