If you want more of my movie opinions, pictures of a bunny AND some data analysis regarding movies (along with some other off-topic stuff occasionally), please check it out.

Don't worry, I will always post my reviews on Criticker too because I love this site more than my own family (don't tell them) and this has been an incredibly valuable resource/tool for me. Plus I appreciate all of you people who have ever reached out to me or starred my reviews. I can't quit you, Criticker, I just want to make some money at my website and hopefully someday quit my crap job.




Anything 51 and up is a recommendation, meaning you aren't wasting your time seeing it. Anything between 51-79 ranges from mediocre to very good. Anything 80+ is what I call a "Great Movie" and it's a must-see and is awesome to various degrees. Anything that's a 50 is something that I'm a fence sitter on (meaning I'm too useless to actually be able to make up my god damn mind) so it could go either way. 49 and under means you should avoid. Under 10 means I was probably raped by the movie or, at the very least, fondled. Despite the effort I've put into explaining my rating system, numbers are fairly often chosen at random (well, maybe my gut feeling) so I might actually like a movie I rated 75 more than an 85, I just really can't be bothered to go back and constantly re-do my ratings.

90 92% Mila (2020) - Oct 21, 2020
"Servetalis gives an understated but powerful performance using little dialogue. Good facial expressions and body movements. Nikou layers the scenes with great music and a sharp eye visually. It's actually pretty funny when they are taking pictures of themselves trying to make memories. But it's also deeply moving when it's lamenting loss of memory. Manages both tones really well. Kinda subtly fucked me up... when it was over I just sat here for a few moments and reflected. I don't often do that."
35 6% Shadow in the Cloud (2020) - Oct 17, 2020
"Talk about a movie that tanks itself. About half of it is a great, mysterious thriller with a cool, driving soundtrack that really set a fresh atmosphere. But then after the twist about what's in the box is revealed (it's a dumb twist) the movie just falls apart. Nothing works anymore: the people act stupid, there's no real drama, the action tries to be over the top and exciting but fails and becomes stupid. Did I mention the twist sucks? So maybe... watch like half of the movie."
75 51% New Order (2020) - Oct 16, 2020
"The beginning was really great; good musical choice and awesome imagery/montage of what we will see later. There are also a lot of shocking moments because it's unflinching in its brutality... but at the same time it sort of normalizes itself and I started to drift on occasionally. I would eventually be snapped back but I feel like a movie like this shouldn't make my mind wander at all."
85 80% What Killed Michael Brown? (2020) - Oct 15, 2020
"Listen, how you view this movie is going to lean heavily on your political beliefs. It's staunchly conservative which is not a judgment, it just is. I think that it does a good job of dissecting BLM, police, racism, etc. from the conservative lens. Could have used a little more B-roll instead of Shelby Steele walking around as much, and some of it goes on too long, but it's still well told and convincing, mixing data and anecdotal evidence well."
95 97% World of Tomorrow Episode Three: The Absent Destinations of David Prime (2020) - Oct 10, 2020
"Better than the second, about on par with the first. It's a little less funny with less jokes per capita than the first but the plot--part romance, part thriller--is better and less "we just monologue for the whole time." This is a great trilogy though. Fantastic animation and humour that ranges from silly to subtle to more complicated. Emotional as well."
40 9% Hubie Halloween (2020) - Oct 08, 2020
"It's an Adam Sandler movie. The comedy, the character he plays, etc. is all familiar. But if you LIKE this formula then you can find more to enjoy. I don't happen to like Sandler comedy but there were a few good jokes. The problem is there are too many jokes and even some of the more clever attempts (to which there are a few) often get drowned by having to POINT OUT THE JOKE. I did like the plot generally though, it was pretty interesting... better than expected in that regard."
80 65% Jídlo (1992) - Oct 02, 2020
"More inspired imagery from Jan. Strange. A little repetitive but I mean, it builds to a satisfying conclusion so I guess that's a minor dig. "
90 92% Kajillionaire (2020) - Oct 01, 2020
"Kajillionaire is my first experience with Miranda July but it has launched her into a director to be followed in my puny mind. With great acting, excellent framing/camera work/directing and a clever script, it's one of the best movies of the year. With that said, due to how little regard it has for following set paths, it may turn off some. Those who stick around will be rewarded. Rodriguez and Wood were the stand outs, there were some really memorable and unique scenes."
70 39% Save Yourselves! (2020) - Oct 01, 2020
"It’s not amazing but everything is good. The performances good, directing good, music good. It’s a really cute alien invasion though, so I can say that. However, sometimes a light watch is great and even preferable to something more substantial because Save Yourselves! Is the type of movie you just put on one day and enjoy it front to back and move on. Those types of movies are okay."
80 65% How to Deter a Robber (2020) - Oct 01, 2020
"It plays with conventions sometimes in an endearing way. Marano is charming, like a Zoey Deutch lite, as Madison but her boyfriend isn’t a compelling character. Mulkey was also great. It wasn’t as funny as it could have been except for the two robbers, who could have gone off the rails but ended up being a good dynamic. Nice mash-up of romcom and home invasion."
