"An extremely unique look at what it means to be an artist and to struggle with the consuming nature of trying to be creative. The premise might not quite fill its running time but definitely worth a watch. "
|85 87%||Dune (2021) - Oct 25, 2021
"Do you like huge and bombastic space operas? If you don't then you'll hate this. I think it is okay to have an overly serious science fiction film without quips and plot twists every now and then. I'm a sucker for Villeneuve's visuals and this does not disappoint. "

"After 2016's Raw, anything Ducournau was putting out I was down for. This follow up has some similar intensity, but is quite a bit more visceral. She keeps the viewer at an arms length as it is a bit difficult to get into the head of either of the main characters. Still, there is something magnetic about this filmmaking. Exciting and shocking. "
|45 10%||Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) - Oct 12, 2021
"Probably the most forgettable film in Carpenter's library, and the end to quite an impressive run that started way back with Assault on Precinct 13th. Nothing is overtly bad, but Chevy Chase is neither funny nor menacing. This gives way to the problem of tone as I have no idea what this is trying to be."
|50 15%||Willy's Wonderland (2021) - Oct 02, 2021
"This is, unfortunately, a bit of a let down given the premise and presence of Cage. It is still quite entertaining but completely bizarre. Things are both overly explained and then also many aspects are left puzzling. The bottom line: Cage smashes robot skulls and plays pinball. "
|63 30%||Malignant (2021) - Oct 01, 2021
"With the sloppiest of narratives throughout the first two acts, Wan’s blank check of a movie soars in its bonkers finale. A throw back to some real 80s camp. Silly and violent. I just wish the first bit was better."
|70 46%||Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) - Oct 01, 2021
"Rather than falling to a simple things-go-bump-in-the-night-flick, Flanagan makes things quite a bit more disturbing by showing the horror on screen. With mouths agape, there is some pretty effective images. As others have said, this is better than it looks on paper."
|70 46%||Juice (1992) - Sep 14, 2021
"This is the forgotten black-youth-urban-drama from the early 90s. It does feel different as it almost takes on a horror aspect as the plot goes on. This isn't surprising with Dickerson at the helm. It continues to sadden me watching a Tupac performance. He had such energy. "
|70 46%||Husbands (1970) - Sep 11, 2021
"The speed at which Jenny Runacre's character becomes infuriated with Cassavetes is evidence of how dislikable these three characters are. This is not to say the performances aren't worth a watch. They certainly are, but it is a difficult watch."
|85 87%||Playtime (1967) - Sep 08, 2021
"With essentially no narrative, this feels more like one of those toys you put in a baby's crib that has a bunch of buttons that if you push them it makes noise. Fun to look at and fun to hear all the sounds. Playtime is absolutely beautiful in its set pieces. They are so intricate and precise in their comedy and movement. Quite a stunning piece of work. "
