• The King's Man

    The King's Man

    ★½

    Boring and surprsisingly tasteless, this weird balance between "WWI funny but also sad" didn't translate well at all. The fact that a goat was my favorite part says a lot. Not enough sneaky spy stuff. I enjoyed the criticism of the concept of dying for your country, but the rest was a huge bucket of meh.

  • Encanto

    Encanto

    ★★★★

    There are some movies that seem to just touch your heart in an inexplicable way. Encanto is one of those movies, with simple but very effective storytelling. It's not as magically charged and flashy as other Disney films, it almost feels like it's meant for adults more so than for kids. I bawled over everyone's story and trauma, even though I'm an only child with a very different kind of family drama.

    We don't talk about Bruno is an absolute banger and it lives in my head rentfree.

  • Shiva Baby

    Shiva Baby

    ★★★★½

    It seems like everyone relates to some part of this movie. For me, it was the toxic family dynamic of pretending to be all good and having crazy secrets. The score of this movie is much appreciated.

  • tick, tick...BOOM!

    tick, tick...BOOM!

    ★★★★

    I'm not a theater person, I don't know much about any of this musical theater world, but the story is captivating and depressing and Andrew Garfield gave an incredible performance, also, at the cusp of 30, can you guys in Hollywood chill with all this angst? Cause it's hitting a little too close to home, son.

  • Drumline

    Drumline

    ★★★★½

    *drumming intensifies*
    A classic. I may be biased because it was a childhood favorite, but no one talk to me about my opinion. It's the best. I'll watch it anytime.

  • Chicago

    Chicago

    ★★★★

    I'm not a huge fan of musicals so I don't normally seek them out, but I thought I'd watch this one since it's such a classic. I knew He Had It Coming and All That Jazz, but everything else, including Richard Gere was a surprise. This was a really fun watch, glad I gave it a chance!

  • The Gentlemen

    The Gentlemen

    ★★★★

    Really fun, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant gave such great performances, and Henry Golding needs to be cast in more stuff, he's amazing. I don't know why, but I'm a sucker for these types of movies, I really enjoyed The Men from U.N.C.L.E. too, who would've thought that I had a soft spot for Guy Ritchie of all people? I would've preferred less edgy jokes about race tho.

  • Eyes Wide Shut

    Eyes Wide Shut

    ★★★★½

    A lot of confusion, a lot of skinny naked white women, and a lot of class commentary. The dreamlike feel of this movie is amazing.

  • Good Omens

    Good Omens

    ★★★★½

    The forbidden romance between an angel and a demon, of course

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★½

    There were times when I would've liked to get to know the characters more, to have time to figure out their powers and motivations, some of it seemed rushed. Overall, much better than what critics were saying, I had fun watching it, I also felt invested in the lives of many of these characters, I think it's a really cool direction Marvel is taking, and I certainly appreciated the diverse cast. Makkari and Druig are so lovely, I cannnot

  • Venom

    Venom

    ★★½

    Tom Hardy is fun, but the rest is kinda meh. Also why does Michelle Williams have the most obnoxiously fake looking wig?

  • Girl, Interrupted

    Girl, Interrupted

    ★★★★½

    Angelina Jolie is incredible in this. This is such a star studded cast, I didn't realize just how huge this movie was, and considering that it's a classic, I haven't seen it before. The fact that Elizabeth Moss and Brittany Murphy is in it is somehow messing with the timeline of actors for me, which is stupid, but here we are. Can't believe I haven't seen it before, damn...
