    The Men Who Stare at Goats

    ★★★½

    I haven’t seen this since theaters but I always had a fond memory of it, even though I didn’t like it. It’s a strange story that gets the best out of its characters and the actors portraying them. Goofy George is a fun time in most films and he’s great as a serious character and comedic one. You can’t help but feel bad for him and how tragic his life is so when the has a happier ending for him, you can’t help but put a smile on his face. The lovely ending is a solid end that leaves hope alive.

    ★★★★

    This film doesn’t seem to have that many fans of it. It’s a fascinating look at the behind the scenes world of spy thrillers. I forgot that Oscar Isaac and Mark Strong were even in it. Russell Crowe is really great as an awful bureaucratic that really thinks his way is the best way. Nobody talks about it but they should because it’s an underrated one.

    This was something!

    ★★½

    The ending really saves this film. It’s got such much nostalgia that when a kid vomited, I expected 80s nostalgia to come out his mouth.

    ★★½

    Everything about this film is what I want from these type of films, but I’ve seen it before in so many other films and nothing about it seems new or fresh. Halle is great in this.

  • Fauci

    Fauci

    ★★★

    It’s an interesting doc about a guy who very few had heard of and then he was everywhere. He’s wrong sometimes and right others. I guess it’s not strange how politicized he has become but he’s right when he says “it’s not personal, it’s just business”. My brother in law thinks he’s the devil and bought a book called Faucian Bargain. While I don’t think he’s a saint, I do think he’s trying to do good. This doc didn’t change my mind on him but did give more insight into who he is.

    This is even better on rewatch.

    The greatest hits of the Green Lanterns is on display.

  • The Humans

    The Humans

    ★★★½

    The sound use in this film is so unnerving and so are the camera choices in it. Richard Jenkins is so damn good in this.

  • House of Gucci

    House of Gucci

    ★★★½

    Ridley is two for two this year. It’s got great performances and the tone of it is mostly comedy until it isn’t. Adam plays two scummy characters in The Last Duel and this. He plays it so well that you route for him until you don’t and think what a jerk he is. Gaga has fun with the character. Leto is punching bags dream. Al is perfect. It’s a little too long but still it’s a great film.

    It’s like looking at a beautiful paintings for an 1 hour and 47 minutes. It’s like looking at a kaleidoscope of a person’s memories.

  • Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain

    Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain

    ★★★★

    This is a captivating film. You can’t helpful but be taken back by how utterly sad it is despite being a doc about exploring life and enjoying the world. For being such a funny, bright, funny and intelligent man there was a sense of sadness about him. It shows despite how much seemingly good things you have around you, you can’t escape from the sad thoughts in you. The ending makes you tear up a bit or at least it…
