91 51% I Saw the TV Glow (2024) - Rated 26 May 2024
"An arthouse film that delivers in a variety of ways. The acting and direction is absolitely brilliant. As is the unsettling aesthetic. As a cis man, I didn't realize the film was so heavily allegorical to a general trans experience upon initial viewing. As such an allegory, the film suceeds. However, it does suffer from the typical highbrow affliction of many art films, that being that more than a few plot beats are nonsensical and rely far too heavily on audience intrepretation to be impactful."
94 79% Challengers (2024) - Rated 27 Apr 2024
"Exhilarating direction and the best performance I've seen from Zendaya, playing a delightfully gray character. Josh O'Connor also brings a charismatic rockstar sleaze to his role as well. Mike Faist serves as a perfect white knight counterpart. Great film overall."
91 51% Abigail (2024) - Rated 20 Apr 2024
"Fun horror comedy with an all-in effort by Alisha Weir, who shows she's game for anything. Pretty cheesy at parts, but a fun popcorn slasher all the same."
87 16% The Blair Witch Project (1999) - Rated 13 Apr 2024
"I guess you had to be entrenched in the culture of the time for this to really work, because watching this film 25 years later, it just feels like a cliche-ridden waste of time. The characters are all annoying as hell and all you do is watch them scramble around the woods, yell at eachother and act like total idiots for 90 mins."
90 42% Kong: Skull Island (2017) - Rated 12 Apr 2024
"Kickass action and a star-studded cast help this film shine in a big way. The characterization of Kong as well as the writing of many of the human characters also help it stand out. Borrows a bit from the early MCU formula on how to make a modern action flick out of existing and beloved IP, but not offensively so."
88 24% Godzilla (2014) - Rated 12 Apr 2024
"Decently satisfying if you're looking for passive entertainment from watching Godzilla fuck up huge monsters and cities (the final kill is particularly badass), but you mostly know what your getting from the trailer alone. Some of the human characters are written completently enough to be more than just your run of the mill cannon fodder, but the most interesting character, played excellently by Bryan Cranston, is killed off about a quarter of the way through the film."
86 10% Civil War (2024) - Rated 11 Apr 2024
"In a 2024 film about the fall of a once great nation titled "Civil War", it's one thing to focus on your characters and the grizzly nature of military combat, but it's another thing entirely to go well out of your way to avoid stirring the pot by refusing to explore the politcal themes and motivations that would have led to such a conflict, and it's a completely unforgiveable thing to refuse to narratively explain which sides are which and what they are fighting for."
90 42% Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (2024) - Rated 09 Apr 2024
"Absolute balls to the wall CGI-fuckfest insanity from start to finish with an absurd plot and even more absurd testosterone-fueled rampaging that grabs you by the nuts and squeezes until they pop.......and i loved every second of it."
89 32% The First Omen (2024) - Rated 05 Apr 2024
"Horrifically evil visuals and some respectable risk put this film on a similar tier to its namesake. However, the mild incoherence of the plot does somewhat prevent it from standing on a rock solid foundation. Nell Tiger Free sells the intensity of her hellish experiences exceptionally well."
87 16% Immaculate (2024) - Rated 30 Mar 2024
"Enough horror cliches to choke a nun. It's very basic, and the moral allegory to the ongoing abortion issue (and its relation to christianity and Catholicism) is impossible to miss. Sydney Sweeney makes a hot virgin Mary... but thats not really the takeaway one ought to have when the credits roll."
