T7 You Were Never Really Here (2017) - Apr 08, 2018
"I won't be the first or last person to call this a Taxi Driver knock (knock) off, or to qualify that by praising its score and cinematography. Ramsay's formal skills are on full display here, but she's let down by a razor-thin script, theme and cast of characters. It's not so much style over substance as it is lacking a style of its own. And while it's crafted with obvious care, and given extra weight and heft through Phoenix's performance, YWNH is a surprisingly hallow & disappointing watch. "
T9 The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) - Apr 08, 2018
"I agree with the negative comparison to Haneke, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't invested. It's a blunt instrument -- even appearing to knowingly laugh at itself at times -- but the strange and compelling nature of its premise makes this work in spite of its faults. "
T6 Bring It On (2000) - Apr 08, 2018
""Whoah, can't mack on you in front of the parentals" *cue Sum 41 song*"
T9 The Florida Project (2017) - Apr 08, 2018
T7 Annihilation (2018) - Mar 18, 2018
"Your enjoyment of this will depend partly on how much you liked Arrival and other films that mine Kubrick's body of work for inspiration. The concept here is fantastic but the script lets it down. Needless expositions flood in from every side while character dialogue is, at times, laughably contrived. It's certainly worthwhile, beautifully shot, and leagues better than similar films, but they could have made this a classic. A great, nightmarish premise that's lacking in terms of its execution. "
T4 The End of the F***ing World (2017) - Mar 11, 2018
"“Unnecessary” would be the polite descriptor ..."
T4 Baby Driver (2017) - Mar 05, 2018
T9 Call Me by Your Name (2017) - Mar 05, 2018
T2 Darkest Hour (2017) - Mar 04, 2018
"Fuck this stuffy, overly self-serious piece of irrelevant and humorless garbage, containing enough moral and dramatic weightlessness to match it's coma-inducing British brethren like A Kings Speech et al. "
T2 The Shape of Water (2017) - Mar 03, 2018
