Bio: My reviews are a collection of the movies I have seen since 2005. The scores I give mean everything and nothing. Mostly nothing. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to discern the difference between a '75' and '80', so I just pick numbers at random.
|75 T7||I Am Not Your Negro (2016) - Jan 15, 2018
"Baldwin's words still resonate today, and the doc does a great job of putting Baldwin speaking (well, Jackson does the speaking) over footage from today. This doc is a pretty good primer on race relations in the 20th/21st century in America. "
|85 T9||Good Time (2017) - Jan 15, 2018
"This film left me empty inside after it was finished. The scenes with his brother are heartbreaking. This film was not a Good TIme -- it was actually a Bad Time. "
|40 T3||Mr. Roosevelt (2017) - Jan 09, 2018
"I really did want to like this film more. The script is so light and breezy, and follows the familiar beats of the indie dramedy genre. I never felt like I understood what was going on in Wells’ head, as she just aimlessly drifted from one scene to another."
|60 T4||Battle of the Sexes (2017) - Jan 09, 2018
"Both Carrell and Stone raise the material, but this film felt so underwhelming because of its constant need to simplify everything. "
|70 T6||Dunkirk (2017) - Jan 09, 2018
"“Good film that I never want to watch again” — the Christopher Nolan filmography."
|65 T5||Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) - Jan 06, 2018
"This is a fun movie, but goddamn, Kylo Ren is such an ineffectual villain. He is continually bested at every turn. Benicio Del Toro added a lot of fun to the film. I felt like the film really started when they got to the casino world, mostly because by that point, I was starting to get sick of what felt like an endless battle. I needed five more minutes of Luke sexually milking the alien, while they both their "O" face."
|75 T7||Dave Chappelle: Equanimity (2017) - Jan 05, 2018
"This set had me roll my eyes at points, but Chappelle could read a grocery list for an hour and I’d be captivated."
|85 T9||The Shape of Water (2017) - Jan 02, 2018
"Who knew the a woman making love to a fishman could be so tender?"
|85 T9||Todd Barry: Spicy Honey (2017) - Jan 02, 2018
"Todd Barry’s slower pace and his constant sarcasm continually makes me laugh."
|65 T5||Starship Troopers (1997) - Dec 29, 2017
"I appreciate the satire. It’s a pretty convincing work of fascist propaganda that can be easily missed. Still, as an actual film, I was pretty lukewarm. Don’t know why, really. "
