52 22% Tag (2018) - Jun 17, 2018
"Tag ended up being more of an average comedy than anything special. The visual style makes it quite an ugly movie to look at with washed out colors and very basic cinematography. There is little depth to the stereotypical characters, holding them back from feeling like actual people. And the inclusion of the reporter felt more like an obligation than a necessity. The big tonal shifts make its intended gut-punch ending more of a wash. In the end, Tag was incredibly mediocre, and nothing more."
59 28% Ocean's 8 (2018) - Jun 16, 2018
"Although Ocean's 8 isn't you're generic chick-flick, it is a good example of how editing can make or break a story. No scene is given the appropriate amount of time for it to "stick", making it feel unpolished, unfinished and bland. There were times where it was impossible to tell if a line of dialogue was a joke or just poorly delivered. No character has a unique enough personality for me to tell them apart. Ocean's 8 feels more like sloppy 4ths than a reward. "

90 91% Perfect Blue (1998) - Jun 16, 2018
"Perfect Blue is an intriguing yet terrifying dive into maturity, identity, and the dangers of becoming a pop culture figure. We see our main character mentally deteriorate as scenes bleed into other scenes making the experience like a break-less exercise, showing what great editing can really do to a film. The line between reality and fantasy is blurred to such an extreme that I began to wonder how much, if anything, of what I was seeing was real, only adding to the anxiety-inducing atmosphere."
