"A fun satire of science fiction blockbusters that could have more comedy bits, but is still worth a watch as is."
|55 45%||Life After Beth (2014) - Sep 05, 2018
"The textbook example of a dark comedy. It is fairly entertaining, but suffers from an underutilization of Plaza (Beth) and a protagonist that, while clearly satirical, is a bit too boring. "
|73 74%||Chinatown (1974) - Sep 05, 2018
"A stunning period piece that suffers from Polanski's inner turmoil. The ending had one too many devastations to be satisfying-- I don't think the film necessarily needed a happy ending, just one less wholly bleak for every single character. I also was more interested in the politics of the movie more than the romance, but I don't fault it much for that."
|100 99%||Sharp Objects (2018) - Sep 05, 2018
"A gripping mystery with an outstanding cast and wonderful editing. Best for people that enjoy being taken for a ride, being left in the dark/confused for a bit, and letting the truth slowly unfurl. Watch with caution-- some scenes are very graphic and could be upsetting."
|21 7%||Léon: The Professional (1994) - Aug 29, 2018
"Extended cut confirms deeply uncomfortable tones of pedophilia. Technically the film is good, the acting is compelling, the shots are decent, but the story made me too uncomfortable to enjoy and of it. Only watched to the end because I'd promised a friend (who had only seen the US cut when they recommended it). Researching the film further reveals that the lead actor actively played against the romance and that Portman's parents further fought the director's vision. "

|58 50%||To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) - Aug 29, 2018
"Standard love story-- a fun, fluffy watch, though there are some ends left frustratingly loose. "
|45 32%||George of the Jungle (1997) - Aug 16, 2018
"Brendan Fraser at his finest. Disney pokes fun at their own take on Tarzan, leading to a wholly silly comedy. Come for the self-parody, stay for the mix of puppets and 90s CG animals."
|86 88%||Gattaca (1997) - Aug 16, 2018
"As far as I'm concerned, it is pillar of the sci-fi genre. Asks moral questions I still think about years after seeing the film."
