|65 T3||The Witch (2016) - Jan 20, 2018
"A typical 17th century life for a family, with some interpretive dance"
|78 T7||Europa Report (2013) - Jan 03, 2018
"This one is underrated. The delivery is a little slow, and may be hard to absorb for some, but the content is quite well thought out. The mission setup and design feels quite legit. Attention to detail is good and the pivotal moments are left to the imagination which is actually a great thing. It definitely gets exciting near the end. Biggest let down is probably the visuals of the Europa surface but acting is great from all cast members."
|58 T2||Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) - Dec 31, 2017
"The Last Jedi is not good. Luke’s part is not totally horrible and some jokes were okay. However it is nonsensical, lackadaisical, and heretical. Combat and action is boring. Finn and Rose rescue some ugly horses on a casino planet that has no personality. Laser projectiles curve downwards in space. Transport vessels are invisible despite being in visual range. It’s mostly bad because it tosses the lore aside and fails to replace it. The franchise has very little to get excited about now."
|83 T9||Blade Runner 2049 (2017) - Dec 29, 2017
"Like its forebear, 2049 will make you think. You’ll think about memories, realism, family, relationships, and the future. The concepts are intelligent and suitably different from the original. You’ll experience it at a perfectly slow pace through an alluring science-fiction world. It respects the lore and characters, but still leaves questions. Featuring wide and colourful shots with perfect framing, there is so much imagery, from the ice on a coat to the shapes of the landscape below. "
|79 T7||Dunkirk (2017) - Dec 27, 2017
"Quite alluring, like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Minimal dialogue and blurry characters just aids in the message. The non-linear approach also works. However the music is often horrible, actually reducing the impact of scenes because it's so loud and crass. Would be much better without music. So good that even Ray Fiennes looks 30 years younger!"
|65 T3||Bright (2017) - Dec 22, 2017
"Kinda unique in that it actually has no acts, it's all just one mushed together chase sequence after the silly intro. Occasionally funny, mostly at the end. The concept is both preposterous and bizarrely interesting. Doesn't really craft its lore well enough and some of the dialogue is pretty brainless. I don't really understand why the elf acted like Leeloo for the first half."
|78 T7||The Revenant (2015) - Dec 18, 2017
"Abusive father is unable to perform his job. This results in the deaths of dozens of men. He then gets mauled by wildlife, becomes a burden and refuses to die, turns into a bear, gets double-smoked, takes a tumble, channels luke skywalker, and finally hugs it out."
|61 T2||Supernova (2000) - Dec 17, 2017
"Almost 2/3rds of a good movie here, trapped behind a shallow dive into its own universe. Some lines are bad and some deaths are weak. The crew has some allure, but not enough. "
|70 T4||Land of the Dead (2005) - Nov 12, 2017
"Wasn't too bad as a standalone zombie flick if you can forgive the zombies actually thinking and firing weapons. I felt like it subverted the obvious at the end."
|67 T3||1922 (2017) - Nov 05, 2017
"Decent enough, fairly dark. But it's pretty slow going and kinda boring in spots. Was hoping for more horror. "
