    mother!

    ★★★

    My review is just gonna be the text I sent my friend who told me this was the worst movie he has ever seen:

    "You know, the most disappointing part about "mother!" was that I genuinely enjoyed the first hour and 45 minutes as a weird thriller. Then the ending just devolved into meaningless gore porn and a half-baked metaphor about the planet that was clearly made for shock value. Oh well lol"

    So yeah, worst Aronofsky movie I've seen. Really wish he stuck the landing.

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★½

    I personally dislike the elderly and feel like she may have made a point or two.

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★½

    The rumors are true. This movie is watchable.

    The good:
    - New aspect ratio and color-grading
    - New Junkie XL score
    - Better character introductions that actually make sense (Cyborg, The Flash, and Aquaman all get new intros)
    - Proper sequencing of the story
    - Steppenwolf finally has a motivation for what he is doing

    The bad:
    - It's still Justice League (2017), just with a shiny coat of paint
    - The dialogue is still bad and/or overly contains exposition…
