|25 T2||Song to Song (2017) - Apr 26, 2017
"I'm sorry but I can't cope with this extremely excessive, artistically questionable and downright uninteresting voice-over action Malick keeps feeding me. I keep trying to get into his work but it feels like he's really pushing for my disapproval so whatever I guess."
|75 T7||A United Kingdom (2016) - Apr 24, 2017
"I was pretty bored during the first half of this, but it shifts gear from extremely cookie-cutter romance to a solid, engaging history lesson. Enjoyable and moving, but the dialog is occasionally quite forced and hammy."
|25 T2||The Fate of the Furious (2017) - Apr 20, 2017
"The loss of Paul Walker has created a gaping hole which must now be filled by the likes of Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson, both of whom turn out to be insufferable in large doses. The film spends most of its time being boring, the elements are still here but the fun is completely absent."
|50 T5||Life (2017) - Mar 29, 2017
"The start is a bit too slow, and the ending is an insult to everyone (and predictable a mile away), but the actual meat on this bone is some pretty solid stuff. Good performances."
|50 T5||Kong: Skull Island (2017) - Mar 19, 2017
"The script is complete garbage, seriously, terrible. Kong is essentially a B-movie with extremely high-value production which is always hilarious enough for me to have a good time - entertaining, but not on its own terms. Until the characters start speaking you may be convinced it's a good film - it certainly looks it."
|100 T10||My Life as a Zucchini (2016) - Mar 19, 2017
"Great! Hey movies, check it out, you can actually just be as long as your story is and not pad your shit out to 90 minutes unnecessarily. An example to be followed."
|100 T10||The Handmaiden (2016) - Mar 19, 2017
"I really don't like the structure of retelling a hustle several times from different perspectives to reveal what's actually going on. In general it just takes way too long and isn't very clever, if you "fool" me by not actually telling me what's going on that's just you not telling me the story. The twists are too cheap. Anyway, this is actually fantastic and the more I think about it the more I like it so whatever."
|75 T7||Beauty and the Beast (2017) - Mar 19, 2017
"The Beauty and the Beast story has never really been done completely right. The setting is what really makes both this and the original, with great atmosphere, characters and music. But there's something about the character development that just isn't right. Anyway, the best live action Disney adaptation so far maybe."
|75 T7||Patriots Day (2016) - Mar 19, 2017
"Surprisingly good, the quasi-documentary techniques work really well and it's actually a pretty nuanced take on something that could have every easily been gung-ho. That said, the buildup was pretty boring and at the very end I just wished it had been a documentary all along."
|100 T10||Logan (2017) - Mar 19, 2017
"I really hope this is Hollywood being on a track. Even if this isn't part of a trend, Logan is a fantastic, brutal, raw, honest thing that punches you in the face. Loved it."
