    From Shannara Chronicles to a Disney guy, and to getting his head bashed in playing a LSD induced 'piggy' killing freak in Tarantino's OUATIH. Austin Butler finally broke his cherry.

    Like Val Kilmer for Jim Morrison, Rami Malek for Freddie Mercury, Joaquin Phoenix for Johnny Cash, Austin Butler was born to helm the titular role of the Rock N Roll King. This sprawling biopic of epic proportions feels like a drug induced power trip back in time as though waking…

    Hypnotic. Somber. That gorgeous monotone background score. That sublime, beautiful camerawork. Men, Tank Tops, Beach bodies, Sand, Sweat dripping off their veins, the sound of waves hitting against the rocks, mountains of Ethiopia and Madagascar beckoning viewers majority of the runtime while this masterpiece from Claire Denis artfully deconstructs pride, greed and masculinity with coping mechanisms of men who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

    ★★★★

    Does a non-superhero film have the ability to go full-house with a 60 something actor as lead? Yes!

    This man is still roping people into theaters.

    Brandishing his other worldly ability to perform stunts at this age only proves he's a true movie star, maybe the last of his kind.

    The sheer testosterone oozing out of this is equivalent to a week's workout.

    I've witnessed many cinematic marvels on the big screen, but the final act of this was unlike anything I ever saw. Pure spectacle and a true theatrical experience.

    Take a bow!

    It always thunders and never rains in Miami Vice but when it rains in Gotham, it pours. We got the Detective Bat we wanted that felt like a great rendition of those Arkham videogames (some memories)

    This film's a proof of the horrid attention span of modern-day moviegoers. Haters will say No Way Home was peak cinema :p
