• King Richard

    King Richard

    ★★★★

    Best acting I’ve seen in a sports movie in a longgg time (all around, not just Will Smith). 

    Felt like an honest peek into the Williams’ family dynamics (S/O to Brandi Williams for calling Richard on his sh!t! She’s a REAL ONE).

  • The Many Saints of Newark

    The Many Saints of Newark

    ★★★

    Instant mob movie!

    Just add:
    -Group conversations 
    -Guys touching each other’s faces
    -People getting killed 
    -Guys treating their wives/gf’s like shit

  • Cry Macho

    Cry Macho

    Not going to rate this because I only watched 15 minutes. Sad, really…

  • Life of Pi

    Life of Pi

    ★★★★½

    This is one of those movies that, if you really buckle up and let it take you, can be so affecting it’s almost startling? I got lost in the experience a few times and had my breath taken away.

    Only reasons I’m not giving it 5 stars is because it fuckin rattled me and made me feel super claustrophobic a few times, and it might take a WHILE before I sign up for a rewatch. Other than that, well done 5 stars!!!

  • Without a Paddle

    Without a Paddle

    ★★★★

    I was incredibly hungover on Sunday morning. I watched this and it helped a lot.

    Hell of a soundtrack, the comedy has aged shockingly well and it’s just overall a damn good time.

    Also low key ranks just behind THE REVENANT for best bear scene, IMO.

  • No Sudden Move

    No Sudden Move

    ★½

    When I say I had no idea what was going on in this movie, I mean I had NOOOO IDEEEEEA! what was going on in this movie. 

    All of the sets looked sooo… not lived in? The score almost put me to sleep. They got a great cast though, I’ll give em that.

    And I’m no cinematographer, but why does this lens or however this was shot make me nauseous? No more of that, please.

  • Pig

    Pig

    This sounds like The Revenant except instead of Leo, it’s Nic Cage. And instead of the main character’s son, it’s his truffle-hunting (???) pig.

    So in other words… I will be seeing this in theaters

  • No Country for Old Men

    Now that I’m a Team Deakins podcast listener, I appreciate this one even more.

  • Cruella

    Cruella

    ★★★★

    Saw this in theaters because well, Emma Stone. Didn’t expect it to be basically an action/heist movie, or as fun as it was. Paul Walter Hauser BRINGS IT. Some of the animation/CGI seemed brutal especially given the budget. But overall way better than I expected

  • Out of the Furnace

    Out of the Furnace

    ★★★½

    Great performances. Loved the locations and feel of this movie, but the ending just didn’t work for me.
