Bio: A movie only gets a bad score (less than 50) from me if it breaks the number one rule in filmmaking: Bores the audience. If at any point in watching a movie I think I want to be somewhere else, the movie fails.

"A very sweet exploration of how a curmudgeon grows up a little bit when he encounters someone close to perfect. It's uneven, but Hanks does well, and it doesn't over-exert itself on subtext."
90 67% Good Time (2017) - Apr 03, 2020
"It's SHOCKING how good Pattinson is. I had no idea. The movie is also really good, and I look forward to seeing the rest of what the Safdies' career holds."
95 88% Little Women (2019) - Jan 17, 2020
"I've never read the book, but the film is basically perfect. I didn't expect to be interested in the characters, but everything comes together so well that it's tough not to love it."
80 45% Ready or Not (2019) - Jan 10, 2020
"Fun and interesting, and very well put together. The central metaphor is ham-handed, but still works."
95 88% 1917 (2019) - Jan 10, 2020
"Spectacular and brilliant. The gimmick serves the story with exuberance and heft. I look forward to watching it again to figure out how, exactly, Mendes put this together—I'm not talking about the cuts, either; those are obvious, but don't detract from the narrative or the action. See this film in a big, loud theater. "
95 88% Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (2019) - Jan 03, 2020
"I enjoyed it a lot more than everyone else, apparently, and got a lot out of it, though I wish Abrams would've made more of the script decisions than Terrio; it's still a lot of fun, though. I latched onto the two central characters in VII, and I was interested in what would happen. Going in with no expectations helps."
90 67% Knives Out (2019) - Jan 03, 2020
"Manages to efficiently cobble together a mystery in a unique and interesting way, while the two leads are terrific and fun to watch."
80 45% Jojo Rabbit (2019) - Jan 03, 2020
"There are a couple of different ways to tell this story, and Waititi's isn't what would've worked best for me, but it's still very warm and enjoyable. "
90 67% The Irishman (2019) - Dec 28, 2019
"There are two and a half movies here, and we're somehow shown three. None of the three are worse than "good," though, and the narrative is interesting and well-told. Beggars can't be choosers; but, then again, this could've been two epic films. Either way, workers of the world, unite!"
95 88% Parasite (2019) - Dec 16, 2019
"A basically perfect literature-style metaphor-on-metaphors story. "
