|91 92%||Midsommar (2019) - Jul 11, 2019
"This is the funniest movie of 2019 and if you disagree you’re dead to me"
|69 28%||But I'm a Cheerleader (1999) - Jul 02, 2019|
|82 65%||Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019) - Jul 02, 2019
"Ups the stakes compared to Homecoming, yet even funnier and continues that movie’s best feature of still being a teen flick above all else. Holland and the rest of the kids continue to put in good performances - I loved Betty Brant’s increased role - while Gyllenhaal is absolutely fantastic, at his unhinged best. Some really gorgeous trippy visuals, and another awesome Giacchino score. A very good send-off to Phase 3 of the MCU, with some truly intriguing ending scenes."
|81 61%||Jaws (1975) - Jun 29, 2019
"First time seeing this since I was just a bab and it holds up super well. The direction, character work, and score are all fantastic. I saw this on the same day as a rewatch of Endgame and it was very interesting to see how blockbusters have evolved in over 40 years - this of course seems largely quaint in comparison, but that doesn’t diminish its impact due to the excellent filmmaking."
|73 36%||Yesterday (2019) - Jun 28, 2019
"Schmaltzy and predictable, but with a lot of decent laughs, and elevated a LOT by Boyle’s direction and the cast. Felt super bad for Lily James’ character who does a lot of emotional and actual physical labour for this hapless fucker after not getting a shred of love from him for a decade."
|52 11%||The Dark Crystal (1982) - Jun 26, 2019
"fuckin 80s kids are the worst man i swear to god."
|88 87%||Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997) - Jun 25, 2019
"Satisfying as an ending to the series in every possible way - killer fights, hypnotic imagery, intense stakes, and headfuckery galore. The emotional and character arcs provide a decent compliment and sometimes counter-point to the final two episodes of the show, and the final scene is a creepy, enigmatic way to keep some mystery."
|86 80%||Toy Story 4 (2019) - Jun 23, 2019
"Hilarious, heartfelt, and surprisingly thematically rich even for this, the most melancholy of major franchises. Could have done with more from a lot of the original characters, but the new introductions are stupendous, and Bo Peep’s reintroduction as a Mononoke-esque badass is perfect. The visuals are as gorgeous as you would expect, and the emotional moments, if not quite as hard-hitting as the ones in 3, still had me crying in the cinema. Main issue was not enough Forky. Forky forever."
|66 25%||Brightburn (2019) - Jun 20, 2019|
|61 17%||Men in Black: International (2019) - Jun 18, 2019
"Better than the reviews led me to expect, but still largely half-baked and unnecessary. Gray is a perfectly competent director, but still can’t do much to improve upon a weak and predictable script. It’s a shame because the original story - as detailed in the articles about the troubled production and rewrites - sounded more interesting. At least we have another movie showcasing the great chemistry between Hemsworth and Thompson, who are clearly having a whale of a time."
