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 seemingly straightforward narrative with a lot beneath the surface. It's punctuated by debilitatingly good performances from Jones and Casal, with perfect direction. See this movie. "

"A very solid and fluid production, put together basically flawlessly. But, it misses a lot of opportunities to actually say something. Mindless entertainment is great, but when you've got hundreds of millions of dollars going into something, why not add a bit of substance?"

"A story about politics and corruption, told with a heist narrative. There's a lot to unpack, so I'll just recommend you see it and let you do so. "
|95 89%||The Front Runner (2018) - Oct 12, 2018
"A phenomenal story with touches that make it near-perfect. Everyone is perfect. Even though Jackman doesn't have Hart's voice down, he has everything else. It's a perfect complement to Bai's book, and you should see it. "

"It's a phenomenal story, and it's told very well. You should see it, and know nothing going in. "

"Above-average R-rated comedy. The script and brisk direction keep things interesting enough to make it a worthwhile watch, with enough heart to give it value. "
|80 45%||Deadpool 2 (2018) - Sep 15, 2018
"Probably as good as the first. Reynolds's flourish and script control is obvious, but welcome; he has a great comedic sensibility, and manages to not be grating about it. "
|80 45%||A Quiet Place (2018) - Sep 15, 2018
"Krasinski put together an interesting, breezy thriller here. The movie hits viewers over the head with clues at every step, but it never feels boring or uninteresting. "
|95 89%||Eighth Grade (2018) - Sep 15, 2018
"A basically flawless portrait of modern adolescence, with an ability to activate emotions that no other film has for me. Really terrific all the way through. I cannot recommend it enough. "
|70 29%||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Aug 17, 2018
"A breezy, above-average comic book movie. It's nice to just skip past the origin story, and to have villains with real motivations that don't involve destroying/conquering the world. Holland is the best Spider-man there's been, and this is probably the best Spidey script. But there's not much to make this more than what it really is. Especially when you know the twist."
