"How about: meat for some, miniature American flags for others?"

"Sometimes, just sometimes, I wish I could’ve booked Ennio Morricone for my bar-mitzvah."
|8 76%||Zelig (1983) - Feb 17, 2020
"Great mockumentary, oozing with immediate rewatch value. Woody Allen should start making Woody Allen movies again."
|7 56%||Chef (2014) - Jan 23, 2020
"This was fun and lighthearted. If you’re a food porn enthusiast, you’ll eat this shit up. A handful of awkward scenes should’ve been left on the cutting room floor and it tapped into the social media zeitgeist a bit too much for my liking, but watching those characters pursuing their passion with such gusto made for a fun and easy watch."
|6 35%||The Farewell (2019) - Jan 22, 2020
"Makes an interesting case about the preservation of familial harmony but ultimately squanders its noble intentions with a lacklustre and repetitive story that fails to deepen the relationships between the main characters. The definition of a 'meh' movie."
|6 35%||Une soeur (2018) - Jan 17, 2020
"Not bad, treating a timely topic through a tense and well framed sequence, but the driver's questionable behavior and overall poor characterization make it instantly forgettable. Belgium can thank Harvey Weinstein for that Oscar."
|5 22%||Ghost Tropic (2019) - Jan 17, 2020
"What bothers me most about this film is that every year, hundreds of aspiring filmmakers get to fight over who receives a piece of the very modest EUR 11 million film fund provided by the Flemish government, yet Ghost Tropic managed to rake in 100K production support despite a blatantly weak script and utterly lazy execution. Whichever crew member was responsible for not losing that camera tripod must've woken up in cold sweats every morning. "
|5 22%||Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019) - Jan 15, 2020
"When Poe announces Palpatine's return, you can literally spot the moment Oscar Isaac's soul appears to leave his body. Honestly, though, this movie was so cheesy, my cholesterol levels doubled just watching it. My favourite part was when Goku finally transformed into a super saiyan right after Frieza killed his buddy Krillin."

"Could've been great had the whole thing not been so blatantly orchestrated like a multilevel video game. The craft is there, but the characterization was lacking and the execution felt disappointingly artificial. It was basically the antithesis of this quote from The Prestige: “You’re looking for the secret. But you won't find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.”"

"If you were to ask moviegoers to name the 5 greatest living directors, I wouldn't hold it against anyone if Tarantino's name showed up numerous times in those lists. Dude just lives and breathes cinema and has IMO never made a bad film, and this documentary was - save for all the hypocritical Weinstein stuff - a nice recap of his amazing career so far."
