"In one of Nicolas Cage's strongest dramatic performances, he plays a weary ex-con in a poor Southern town, struggling to hold his own worst tendencies in check while looking out for a young boy who might yet have a chance at a better life. David Gordon Green is an expert at portraying the harsh realities of life in these communities, and despite the bleak nature of the story always finds room for moments of beauty and hope."
|69 25%||The Piano (1993) - May 21, 2019
"This movie was a bit of a struggle for me. The historical New Zealand setting was fascinating, and the performances were mostly strong across the board (although giving the Oscar to Anna Paquin is a little ridiculous). But between the often unlikable characters and the really messed up entanglement of abuse, sexuality and romance, I was always kept at a remove."

""A friend with weed is a friend indeed." Everybody involved in this project must have taken this rule to heart."
|31 3%||Time to Kill (1989) - May 14, 2019
"There's just nothing here. Why does this movie exist?"
|77 59%||The Turin Horse (2011) - May 13, 2019
"A fascinating, very bleak and extreeeemely slow movie about the soul-crushing drudgery of everyday life."
|75 49%||Pather Panchali (1955) - May 13, 2019
"There's something about watching kids wander around the countryside and enjoy the simple pleasures of life that never fails to connect with me. A beautifully shot visit to another time and place that effortlessly moves between joy and tragedy. Probably a bit longer than it needed to be."

"My review was going to be all “I want me space gold!“ but then HE DOESN'T EVEN WANT HIS GOLD?? WHAT IS THIS SHIT!?"
|30 2%||Leprechaun 3 (1995) - May 13, 2019
"15 points for the movie, 15 points for FAZIO!"
|81 78%||Avengers: Endgame (2019) - May 13, 2019
"About as good of an ending for this long and inhomogeneous saga as one could have hoped for. The film rewards fans of the franchise and delivers some of its most emotionally resonant moments. I'll never be as invested in these stories and characters as many others seem to be, but I'm glad that they got their satisfying conclusion. Sure, there are many nits to pick, but beween some long-overdue love for the unjustly maligned Thor 2 and Scarlett Johansson's best MCU performance, I won't complain."
|69 25%||Dirty Dancing (1987) - Apr 22, 2019
"Cool dance choreography, an interesting setting and a few good observations about class differences and double standards make this better than it needed to be. The plot is still mostly a flimsy excuse to have Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey exchange as many smoldering looks as possible and dance in as many montages as they could cram 80s pop hits onto the soundtrack, but a world that has a place for Rocky IV should also have one for Dirty Dancing."
