"People wouldn't hate baby boomers so much if all they did was politely rob banks"
65 52% Upgrade (2018) - Dec 10, 2019
"I wonder if this was pitched as RoboCop meets The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Some fun action and camera work, but the tone is a too serious for how schlocky everything is. Follows Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey to a laughably cookie-cutter degree. Whannell might as well have the protagonist say out loud "I'm rejecting the call to adventure, now I'm accepting it, oops, now I'm crossing a threshhold, oh look, I'm meeting with the goddess, hey, what do you know, I've returned changed.""
94 95% Marriage Story (2019) - Dec 09, 2019
"Baumbach is in top form with an excellent script and two great lead performances. Adam Driver especially deserves some awards love. Pulls off the impressive balancing act of having each parent seem perfectly reasonable in isolation, yet completely unreasonable when we're shown the other's perspective. The authenticity to every element should be applauded. Making the lawyers the antagonists is a brilliant choice, it allows each lead to remain someone you can fully root for."
63 50% Headshot (2016) - Dec 05, 2019
"Video review: https://youtu.be/A7ctgQNmWBc"
57 40% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) - Dec 04, 2019
"I don't see the appeal in telling the story in this manner. The perspective this film takes seems geared toward an audience who's never heard of Ted Bundy, which, come on, everyone has. There's no questioning his guilt. The script is weak and female characters especially are clearly not this writer's strong-suit. Malkovich is great, steals the show. The guard shouting "No touching!" might not have been written as an Arrested Development reference, but the actor definitely played it that way."
70 60% The Report (2019) - Dec 03, 2019
"It's pretty good, but just imagine for a second if Aaron Sorkin wrote this... whoa-baby best screenplay nomination guaranteed, this story has him written all over it. Based on very little I'm going to declare this is the exact level of quality that Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie would have been without Sorkin's writing. Huh? What are you talking about? That is totally clear assessment and totally not ultimately meaningless jabbering about an alternate universe"
78 73% Succession (2018) - Dec 02, 2019
"It's basically Arrested Development but as a drama... except wait, this is still mostly a comedy, it just happens to be an hour long"
20 7% Pain & Gain (2013) - Dec 01, 2019
"This is such reprehensible filth."
12 5% Alex Cross (2012) - Nov 27, 2019
"The pinnacle of incomprehensible shaky cam action"
54 35% First Man (2018) - Nov 23, 2019
"Well made, but did not engage me at all."
