  • To Catch a Thief

    To Catch a Thief

    ★★★

    Beautiful looking movie, but honestly expected better from Hitchcock.

  • All Too Well: The Short Film

    All Too Well: The Short Film

    ★★★

    For her first time directing, this was very well  done. A bit on the nose at times, but still good. Honestly could watch an hour of that fight scene. Super well-acted and directed.

  • Che: Part One

    Che: Part One

    ★★★

    Beautifully shot, but lacking in a structure that keeps me personally engaged. It’s like if Soderberg’s typical “procedural/enacting the plan” scenes were a bit less interesting and stretched out for a whole two hours. But I respect the choice.

  • Crimson Peak

    Crimson Peak

    ★★★

    These people really need to stop stabbing each other. After the fourth stab I’m just like, “bro, you had to see that coming!”

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I feel like I have a love/hate relationship with Craig’s bond movies. Casino Royale is easily the best, but then every subsequent movie goes out of its way to NOT do everything that worked about Casino Royale! I don’t get it. Hard to argue with Skyfall because it’s so beautiful, but even it leans more into the classic Bond tropes, it’s just grim about it. While NTTD is better than Quantum and Spectre, it still moves away from what works…

  • Cruella

    Cruella

    ★★★

    Could’ve used less CGI dogs, less voice-over and exposition from Cruella, less needle-drops, and been 30 minutes shorter. But overall, I appreciated that this tried to be unique, used some interesting camera movement, and had some good costume and set design. But why is this movie almost 2.5 hours long?

  • The Devil Wears Prada

    The Devil Wears Prada

    ★★★

    Definitely have seen parts of this, but never the whole thing. It was fine? First thing I noticed was how intentional & energetic the cinematography was. You won’t find a movie like this made today that doesn’t look like a TV movie.

  • The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★

    I don’t feel it’s quite as good as many are making it out to be, but it certainly has great moments. I appreciate what it tried to do and would love to see more and more Lord & Miller projects like this.

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★

    Meh. I appreciated some of the things they tried to do even if many elements felt formulaic. But overall the pacing did not work.
