48 21% Gen V (2023) - Rated 17 Mar 2024
"It’s definitely serving the same ingredients as The Boys, but skipped the 101 course on how to properly implement shock. It’s mainly gross just for the sake of it, and when trying to utilize the gore or sex in any meaningful way, it uses it for self-victimizing porn. As a female, I’m so incredibly done with the whole topic of how bad we “menstruators” have it when the education system has failed men and there’s so many issues men exclusively have to deal with. Gen V advocates cherry-picking."
67 73% Damsel (2024) - Rated 17 Mar 2024
"Tagline says: “This isn’t your typical fairytale” Pray tell, Hollywood, when was the last time we had a male protagonist that saved a damsel in distress? 30 years ago? It’s laughable that audiences are STILL being gaslit into thinking that any given upcoming movie project is the FIRST OF ITS KIND to promote female empowerment when that’s the only kind of movies we have anymore. That being said, this was an entertaining watch. MBB sold the physical discomfort and there’s some grueling imagery."
20 2% The Curse of Humpty Dumpty (2021) - Rated 16 Mar 2024
"The story was obviously build from the ending. Too bad the unfocused mess of a POV doesn’t earn the emotional impact of the haunting conclusion."
36 8% Irish Wish (2024) - Rated 16 Mar 2024
"Works better as a trailer than a movie. The plot is so contrived that the overall story suffers. The writers know that the protagonist “needs” a third act conflict and fabricate nonsensical shite. The characters sputter cliches: “You’re running away” and “I wanted it, but not like this” and those mean absolutely nothing within the context of the dialogue. They sound more like AI inserts. Embarrassingly bad writing that ruins a good story idea."
41 13% May December (2023) - Rated 11 Mar 2024
"It raises more questions it feels comfortable answering. Incest subplot - dropped. Cheating - brushed aside. Qualms of the oldest daughter - ignored. Relationship drama is forgotten by the end and proper conclusion avoided. I know there's an appeal to intriguing ambiguity but then there's just lazily throwing around a dozen interesting plot threads and concluding them with a "the audien will fill in the blanks". Eff off. I’m not doing your job for you, movie."
77 89% The Creator (2023) - Rated 10 Mar 2024
"Looked great, had amazing scenery and included world building that was not complete but comprehensive. Voyles might very well be one of the best child actors I’ve ever seen. Last quarter definitely had a TikTok-esque editing pace but it didn’t bother me. Everything relevant was messaged across effectively."
70 80% American Fiction (2023) - Rated 10 Mar 2024
"The story is about an academic black author who garners major literary success when catering to the woke hivemind’s preconception that all blacks are suffering the ghetto lifestyle. Especially during the current culture wars, this is a topical and poignant reminder that “victimized BIPOC-people” are not “lesser than” or pets to the virtue signaling of the more affluent. Non-white people are not predestined to disparity no more than anyone else (of similar socioeconomical background)."
60 52% The Zone of Interest (2023) - Rated 10 Mar 2024
"I’ve never seen a film that takes such a quasi-sympathetic approach to Nazis. Not glorifying them, but rather depicting them as extraordinarily common people. Where this film faltered was overtly underlining the banality. The audience didn’t need 17 minutes long running scenes of gardening and swimming right next to a Holocaust to drive home the point that these people were detached from the surrounding world. I’d like it more if the apple-hiding girl would’ve been one of the family’s children."
72 84% Anatomy of a Fall (2023) - Rated 08 Mar 2024
"The movie lets you draw your own conclusions on wether this is a film about a grieving widow dragged through a mentally taxing trial or a murderous master manipulator who blew smoke in everyone's faces. The film is objective, the characters are not. It's a good analogy on how humans like to think they know the truth (on any given topic) based on snippets of information that can be construed and misconstrued through the lens of personal biases. That being said (SPOILER?) the mom totally did it."
80 93% In the Mood for Love (2000) - Rated 08 Mar 2024
"If you're in the mood for forbidden, morally messy romance that teeters on the brink of crossing a line of no return, this is your movie."
