|75 78%||El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) - Oct 14, 2019
"I love them for allowing me to be in this universe for another 2 hours. Skinny Pete saying "you're my hero and shit" really moved me, because it's meta - he's an outsider looking at all that has happened and granting Jesse almost magical favors, and so are we. As a BB fan, it made me reminisce about the time I first saw these guys. It's the brilliant. sensitive writing by Gilligan, in a Sopranos-kind of way where characters in the show subliminally reflect on the show itself."
|85 92%||Parasite (2019) - Oct 13, 2019
"A very remarkable way of filming rooms, reminding me of the symmetry and playing with space like Kubrick did; cinematically it's immaculate, absolutely perfect. No scene is boring, and this should be a lesson to all filmmakers. There's an originality in sequences that reminds me of Breaking Bad in a way - absurd, tense situations made completely believable. It's a contender for best movie of 2019 and an absolute must-see."
|45 19%||A Simple Favor (2018) - Oct 11, 2019
"A contrived hollywood production Gone-Girl'ing it up, adding some comedy. Needless to say laughs were not had. B. Lively pretty sexy, A. Kendrick is sprightly, shy and funny like Amy Adams early in her career, but quite possibly not as good."
|75 78%||Border (2018) - Oct 09, 2019
"The great thing about this movie is how it's about an outcast with an interesting trait, until it's not and it takes a deep and daring dive into nordic folklore-fantasy but still holds the narrative and characters together. Guillermo Del Toro will probably buy and misunderstand this story and tack it up Hollywood-style real hard. Be in before him and watch this fascinating, beautifully acted oddball."
|45 19%||The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) - Oct 09, 2019
"USA Soccermom-movie so a lot of guns, death, knives, war, violence, pain, betrayal, blood, xenophobia, and, since it's 2019, vagina-jokes. Kate McKinnon can pull it off, the rest can't. "
|55 32%||Family (2018) - Oct 08, 2019
"Zero laughs, but not the worst femcom I've seen this year. Taylor Schilling does have some chops as a lead."
|50 25%||Take This Waltz (2012) - Oct 08, 2019
"An Indie Themepark was created, in which a beautiful, dirt poor couple lives in a messy, but immaculately charming villa (est. $3 million) - he lives off desperately trying to write a cookbook about broiling chicken and she.. i forgot. Neighbour is hot, problems ensue. A movie follows. The victim of all this? Me."
|50 25%||Stone (2010) - Oct 07, 2019
"The writers tried their hand at creating an intimate tale about deception, trust and seduction. And they unfortunately weren't good enough to make any of it work. Anyone who wants to watch the ol' Robert de Niro be bagged by an average looking femme-fatale though, sign up here. +They're good actors, it's not grating to watch. +Very nice soundtrack by Machinefabriek & Jon Brion."
|50 25%||Focus (2015) - Oct 07, 2019
"They thought it was a great idea to make yet another con-movie, in which not only the movie characters, but also the viewer is conned all the way through. It's a rightful stab at entertainment, and I would say it's entertaining 33% of the time. Other than that it's a dumb movie that I sacrificed myself watching. "
|50 25%||Anesthesia (2016) - Oct 07, 2019
"This is a movie like the ridiculous farce Crash (2004) - it obscures the pubescent storylines through timeline jumps making it seem it all clicks together. Annoying because of it's undeserved epicness. "
