97 95% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Rated 02 Dec 2017
"Immediately engaging thanks to the terrific cast lead by McDormand and Harrelson. Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri is one of the most complete film packages of 2017. Shocking, darkly comedic and filled with twists this film has to be a contender for best picture. McDormand commands the screen in a way that makes moments of the film hard to accept and Harrelson offsets her to help solidify a tour de force performance. As it progresses it becomes unpredictable and tells a brilliant story."
95 91% The Wire The Wire (2002) - Rated 17 Feb 2018
"One of the most compelling and realistic cop dramas of all time because the scope was much wider than most shows of the same nature. This is a story of both sides, the ones avoiding the law and the low key slow burn approach to build a solid case. The acting is terrific over the course of the 5 season run as each character weaves a poignant and gritty narrative of life of law and crime on the streets of Baltimore."
98 96% Joker Joker (2019) - Rated 06 Oct 2019
"A slow burner of a descent into madness as his mind cracks and society decays around him, Phoenix's Fleck is disturbing and delusional. Fully immersed in a world of chaos and confusion, Phoenix offers up a complete transformation that very few have ever accomplished before him. It should leave you uncomfortable as you watch someone's brain splinter and lose grip on reality due to a mental illness.It's title refers to a character, the content gives criticism on how society handles mental illness"
95 91% It It (2017) - Rated 11 Sep 2017
"Finally I believe I have seen a modern horror masterpiece. I felt the shock and the terror and every moment of this film brutally took you through one of craziest phsychological rides you can experience. Bill Skarsgard you are a legend sir. Thank you for the chilling and absolutely terrifying interpertation of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The young cast also have bright futures. Bring on Chapter 2. What an awesome viewing experience this truly was. I am ready. Thrill me again Skarsgard."
98 96% Nope Nope (2022) - Rated 21 Jul 2022
"Jordan Peele has done it again. He has taken flawed characters and put them in the most unlikely situations and made you sit on the edge of your seat. It was crazy, it was emotional, it was comedic. Peele fully immerses you in this crazy thrill ride. Kaluuya is amazing as the quiet and hard working OJ. Palmer is a great counter part to his character. There are a few twists and turns as well that make Nope the most fun film of 2022. Brilliant movie."
98 96% The Punisher The Punisher (2017) - Rated 28 Dec 2017
"A darker and violent look at the current state of America with betrayal, guns, secrets and murder. Frank Castle is the epitome of PTSD shown on screen and Jon Bernthal perfectly balances a man torn by his past and a man hell bent on destroying the ones responsible. The show really picks up after episode 7 with the action. Bernthal raised the bar and his fellow cast mates matched him on a level of pure intenisty very few shows carry through out. Bring on season two. Frank Castle is here to stay."
90 82% Rise Rise (2018) - Rated 18 Apr 2018
"Rise is lead by the incredible musical and acting talent of its cast. Radnor is pure gold in the lead role and Auli`l Cravalho does a fantastic job of leading the younger cast. At times maybe the message of pushing ones comfort zone is a bit too preachy but it ultimately has a strong message worth conveying to an intelligent audience. Definitely has potential even moving beyond season 1 and my hope is to see where this story leads over a good 4 to 5 year run."
84 59% All the Money in the World All the Money in the World (2017) - Rated 29 Mar 2018
"Without Christopher Plummer coming in and excelling the way he did this film may have been half as good. We have no idea what the original vision for this role would have looked like, but Plummer alongside Wahlberg and Williams does his best to create tension. The film jumped all over the map and that hurt the message of the film. Still a quality film that does a good job shaping the narrative around the talents of the cast who create a stunning portrait of a true story."
90 82% Zack Snyder\ Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) - Rated 18 Mar 2021
"This is the movie that we deserved. The unfiltered raw and real movie that Zack Snyder is accustomed to making. It dives deeper into the members that make up the team and gives them all an origin and plot threads that are worthy of continuation. This universe is not without flaws but damn it please continue this vision. It's just full of too much badass action and was way too much heart to end here. It's a world with an open ending so let's see where it goes."
85 63% Aladdin Aladdin (2019) - Rated 21 Sep 2019
"Will Smith doesn't quite reach the levels of eccentricity that Williams brought to the role but it is still a fun take. This movie had heart, chemistry between the two leads and a story that definitely allowed for the outlandish and for a core to be formed. The visuals at times felt a bit over the top and haphazardly done to keep it three dimensional worthy. It took away from the realism set against the fantasy. At times it took away the heart of the film and replaced it with a created image."
