|70 25%||The Godfather: Part III (1990) - Feb 25, 2020
"Some hammy stuff but very pretty. "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!" I found the opera and drama transparent, as if Coppola himself is trying to spoon feed us. I'm not falling for it. "
|65 15%||Jojo Rabbit (2019) - Feb 25, 2020
"I thought just the idea of this film was unnecessary. It just feels trampled on. Maybe inspired by every other Hitler comedy and the Jimmy Stewart film "Harvey" with his imaginary rabbit friend. It just didn't reinvent much with its sources. "
|100 99%||Stand by Me (1986) - Feb 22, 2020
"I saw this when I was 8. It was both a poignant and romantic life defining movie. It gave me a new perspective on my own childhood. To this day I still haven't read The Body."
|95 98%||Happiness (1998) - Feb 22, 2020
"One of the most uncomfortable experiences of having to suppress laughter in a theater full of people who just didn't get it. I love this movie. I've kept returning to it over the years. The most unabashed movie about sexual perversity and darkly comic throughout."
|80 61%||Knives Out (2019) - Feb 14, 2020
"This is an unconventional and self-aware Clue kind of movie. Rian Johnson threw out his copy of the popular Syd Field book and does a cinematic tightrope walk of screenwriting and direction. Finally a murder mystery where the characters aren't paper thin."
|35 1%||The Jesus Rolls (2019) - Feb 08, 2020
"This could have been good and quirky given the source material. Instead, it's very tedious throughout."
|80 61%||Dark Waters (2019) - Feb 08, 2020
"A corporate lawyer defending the little man movie. Top notch acting by Bill Camp (with the fake eyebrows) and the two leads. These dark waters will sober you right up."
|80 61%||I Lost My Body (2019) - Feb 07, 2020
"I thought this was an original and engaging piece of filmmaking. Check it out while it's on Netflix."
|55 7%||Doctor Sleep (2019) - Feb 01, 2020
"I'd put this in the same trash heap of pointless reboots with Solo: A Star Wars Story. Like, remember how cool it was in Kubrick's movie? Let's be reminded of all the scenes we liked but in this newly formatted superhero style revenge tale. I can't escape super hero movies! Help! Redrum!"
|90 92%||A Few Good Men (1992) - Feb 01, 2020
"It's been a while since I revisited this one. Sometimes the mark of a great movie is how many rewatches it gets. I've seen this one over ten times."
