    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★

    A little better than the first one, but that's the kind of ultra-low bar this movie applies to Jon Krasinski's hero from the previous. It must be some kind of spousal abuse to direct your wife in a movie where she has to just say over and over again how amazing your character was and how noone will ever compare and she wishes she was half the person you were.

    And WHOEVER decided to put a beard over my literal…

    Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    ★★

    Beautiful cinematography from Phillipe Rousselot, great performances from Michael B Jordan and Guy Pearce and not as fascist as the Tom Clancy possessive would indicate still can't make this a good movie. But I don't have any remorse about watching it?

    Listen to Cerise and I get very excited about Rousselot's filmography and little else in our Based on a Best Seller Episode

    It's just too bad they couldn't afford the rights to call this Terrence Malick's Badlands 2

    I hate to say this, as it was a Secret Cinema rec (shout outs to Harlequinade! I really do think this was a good pick for me, and also, sorry) and I had it in my watchlist and was excited to see it, but I kinda hated this.

    This is a fascist troll of a film, with its ur-racist genocide against the violent kidnapping savages narrative explained and laid out by an indigenous character, who distances "real natives" such as…

    ★★★½

    Thought I was just plugging in for a well made scary animal movie, was not ready to encounter such a deep dive into despair. Everything about this movie is so fucking desperate, from Dee Wallace's squalid affair with a lowlife abusive creep, to her husband's awful advertising campaign and its embarrassing gastrointestinal destruction, to their son's almost pathetic admiration of him, to the falling apart car and the mechanic and his violent buddy's filthy lives, to the frightened and battered…
