"My favorite part was when the super creepy pedo cook made super creepy pedo remarks, and the other cook laughed it off with an "oh you!" Shocking that this was a movie with a real and substantial theatrical release. "
|73 72%||Hereditary (2018) - Jan 20, 2019
"The opening shot was outstanding technically, visually, and thematically (granted my interpretation may be way off). I did get a little bored through the second act as the story felt pretty standard horror. But it stuck the landing with the ending."
|77 82%||Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) - Jan 19, 2019
"A bit of a lackluster ending, and the film reel MacGuffin was a little tiresome, but overall really enjoyable. The characters were a lot of fun and the production design was great. "
|55 27%||Doodlebug (1997) - Jan 10, 2019
"An early show of the kind of ideas that grown-up Nolan would use in his films. But it feels just as student film-y as most others I've seen and there's little hint of the filmmaking prowess he would develop, other than perhaps atmospherically."
|57 31%||Bird Box (2018) - Jan 07, 2019
"It's a nice concept, though definitely undermined by coming on the heels of A Quiet Place. Much of it was a little too predictable and there were several obstacles that felt too easily overcome. I honestly watched it mostly because of the memes."
|71 66%||The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) - Jan 04, 2019
"Always tough to rate something like this where the different segments vary so wildly in pretty much all aspects. Personal favorite was the gold prospector, but the rattled woman was a close second. Funny thing about this is that everybody I've talked to seems to have completely different views on ranking the segments."
|68 58%||Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) - Jan 02, 2019
"Some of the references were really fun, especially the Disney Princesses. And the moral of the story is pretty unique. But the plot was not super compelling and felt more like it was just meant to fit in as many references and clever ideas as they could, so it was somewhat underwhelming as a whole."
|80 88%||Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (2018) - Dec 29, 2018
"The choose-your-own-adventure gimmick is used quite well, in a sense. [SPOILERS.] Just as you begin to get frustrated because your choices mostly seem to not matter, you realize that this actually puts you in the proper mindset of the main character who feels powerless in this world. That being said, I do hope the next experiment with an interactive story feels like your choices have a greater impact on the story. Here, the consequences of your choices only seem to matter toward the "end"."

"Phil Hartman is great and there are some great quotes in here, but it's mostly just as terrible as its reputation."
|59 35%||17 Again (2009) - Dec 27, 2018
"Efron is a guy that I thought I hated (was it the haircut? probably.), but has turned out to be pretty good for comedic roles. Along with some other talented comedic actors like Tom Lennon, they make this standard story work nicely."
