Bio: Wannabe film connoisseur. But I'm probably just a kid who'd like to think he knows stuff.
||The Thief and the Cobbler (1993) - Sep 11, 2019
" "Good art can never save bad writing." Recobbled Cut: Artistic indulgence at its finest and worst, simultaneously. The completed animation is jaw-dropping, but the story and characters are flat, barely-interesting excuses for more visual flourish. Without some kind of emotional or story hook, the animation feels strangely empty or uninspired. "
||Elysium (2013) - Aug 01, 2019
"There's potential in its world-building, but this dystopia is so one-dimensional and morally flat, it has literally nothing enlightened to say about the nature of class, wealth, and privilege. "Rich people = snobby assholes" does not a social critique make. "
||Us (2019) - Jul 08, 2019
"Very strange and ambiguous movie, but kudos for originality. And isn't that what I've been wanting all along? More originality, strangeness, and risk-taking coming out of Hollywood? They won't all be clear-cut successes, but that's the price you pay for not playing it safe. "
||Toy Story 4 (2019) - Jul 03, 2019
"The world of Toy Story is simply a delight to explore, still full of colorful characters and emotional depth even after all these years. This one tackles the thematic issues of the series with a masterful bittersweet ray of hope: the cycle of love will live on for some, but being a "lost toy"--the most dreaded state of existence in the previous three--turns out to not be as bad as you'd think."
||Craig of the Creek (2018) - Jun 23, 2019
"Excellent slice-of-life kid's show with a unique blend of youthful flights of imagination and emotional realism. "
