"One of the most charming movies I've seen lately. Sure, it has flaws if you look deep enough but who cares? Brilliant."
|81 71%||Uncut Gems (2019) - Jun 21, 2020
"What a trip. Not for everyone, but what a trip."
|73 44%||The Descent (2005) - Jun 01, 2020
"The thriller part starts great but the dialogues are weak, then the thrill loses its focus a little and the not-too-shabby-for-a-horror-movie characters start flirting with cliches. Solid entertainment value throughout though."
|68 25%||Grosse Pointe Blank (1997) - May 28, 2020
"Smart script, but for some reason doesn't realize its full potential. I think it's because it cannot choose whether it's a rom com with a hint of suspense or vice versa, and what we end up with is a confused rhythm and tone. Still, not unfun."
|64 18%||True Lies (1994) - May 27, 2020
"Cameron is a great director and Schwarzenegger movies are almost always fun. That being said, this movie has not aged well at all. Don't rewatch it."

"I really respected this movie for knowing what it is and trying its best to please the audience given those inherent limitations. Great job. The acting and the dialogues were far better than what I'd have expected."
|81 71%||Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) - May 01, 2020
"Starts slow and boring but you stay for the visuals, the story slows starts to catch up but then it escalates a little too much. Nonetheless, it's beautiful sure, but the heart of it is missing a little."
|76 53%||The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) - Apr 30, 2020
"Subtly masterful acting, even from (in my book) disputable names like Law and Paltrow. I liked the direction too despite pacing problems. However, the added characters to the story and the broadened scope makes it a bit unfocused at times. Good conclusion though, and definitely a good old-fashioned calm thriller."
