    Pig

    Ever since Mandy, I’ve been on the Nic Cage hype train. I look forward to whatever situation that Nic Cage is going to manically scream his way through next. Pig is not that movie, however, and it’s all the better for it.

    Although I felt the plotting around Pig was a little all over the place, unsure of what kind of movie it wanted to be, Cage is undeniable. It’s a more subdued Cage we’re seeing here, and it gives him a…

    This became The Fast & The Furious 9: Tokyo Drift 2, and I could not be happier about it. 

    Maybe it was being back in the theater fully vaxxed for the first time, but man did I have a good time in this movie.

  • Bo Burnham: Inside

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    Cathartic

    …the only word I can use to describe Bo Burnham’s pandemic-centered special. There’s a shot in this movie (and yes I’m calling it a movie, in a twisted documentary sort-of-way) where Bo is watching a video of himself as a 16 year old in his first ever YouTube video. It’s reminiscent of The Aviator, and for me it brought back memories of mine when I first started to discover Bo at around the same age. 

    I’ve revisited this movie…

    Shiva Baby

    Well well well. It has been a little over three weeks since I’ve watched a movie and even longer since I logged one to Letterboxd. My life’s been busy: I’ve been traveling, and I think this is the longest I’ve gone without watching a movie in YEARS. And what better movie to make my return to than with Shiva Baby

    This is one of the most pristinely compact comedies I’ve seen in a long time. You feel the confines of…

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    Watching this again, I appreciated the casting choices for this movie even more. Casting all of these actors known for nice roles like Max Greenfield (New Girl), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad), and Bo Burnham (just being Bo Burnham) as douchebags makes it all the more shocking for the horrible things they do. 

    While unfortunately many of the things we see these characters do/say won’t be shocking for some people, we certainly didn’t expect these fine gentlemen to be the ones to do them.

  • Minari

    Minari

    I have never seen a cuter kid in a movie than Alan Kim. Every time he ran I thought I was going to cry. 

    I luckily went into this movie knowing nothing about the plot, and it was a wholly rewarding experience.  Minari has the strongest ensemble of the year, but it was Han Ye-ri’s performance as Monica, the mother, that blew me away the most. 

    I can’t reccomend this movie enough to watch sometime before the Oscars this month!

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    I can’t believe I ever liked this movie, what was I thinking?

    Overacted, lack of diversity in the cast, and there were no standout performances. 

    The plot jumps all over the place from one genre to the next, and there are so many plot holes?  Would anyone ever really be living under someone’s house? That’s just blatantly unrealistic. It preaches these themes of class struggles and self-worth but is just an over-inflated ego boost for Bong Joon-ho.

    Not looking forward to whatever projects anyone involved in this movie has next, a hard 1/2 star for Parasite.

    For the longest time, The Force Awakens was my favorite movie. As a long time Star Wars fan, this was the first one I was old enough to fully appreciate and understand in the theater. I still think it’s one of the most endlessly rewatch-able and enjoyable movies I’ve ever seen, and I’m glad that my girlfriend felt the…

    The Father

    I am infatuated by the inventiveness of this movie. I still don’t think I’m over how skillfully Florian Zeller directs The Father

    The scene at the dinner table where the conversation somehow naturally fits itself into a loop is one of the coolest sequences I can remember ever seeing in a movie. I’m blown away, one of my most favorites in a long time...
