• Total Recall

    Total Recall

    ★★★★½

    This film is the is the best version of all the tropes and plot devices it uses.

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    ★★★½

    This films message was insanely close to being... be a piece of shit win in life. Which I guess is kinda true but still a terrible theme.


    Also be prepared for all the women that get upset that guys “miss the point” to fight club and idolize Tyler Durden, to idolize this films MC.

  • Ocean's Thirteen

    Ocean's Thirteen

    ★★★★½

    This is the best Oceans movie. I said it.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★½

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

    Interstellar a film about being helped by the future.
    Tenet a film about being attacked by the future.

  • The Devil All the Time

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★

    This film feels a bit like off-brand Tarantino. 

    Unapologetic gruesome violence, unique accents and dialogue, interesting characters, and a definitely unpredictable and unconventional plot line. This film is overflowing with ideas and concepts. The devil all the time has a lot to say, but maybe a little too much to say. I never felt as if there was a concise theme presented. It could simply be my lack of understanding, but either way it feels a little all over the…

  • Outside the Wire

    Outside the Wire

    ★★★

    2021

    This films strong points are it’s characters and the world surrounding them, which is quite different from the norm of modern day action films. Outside the Wire features a fairly interesting “buddy cop-ish” relationship, with pretty decent performances from them both. Usually I would be half asleep when it came time for dialogue and exposition in any given modern action film. Surprisingly enough, in Outside the Wire that is exactly when I was most interested.

    The action in this film…

  • The Breadwinner

    The Breadwinner

    ★★★★½

    The greatest favor an animated film can do for itself is not proclaim it is a “kids movie” in literal terms and in delivery. The Breadwinner holds nothing back when telling about terrible misfortune and a brutal misogynistic ruling. 

    For all the bad this film shows it equally shows the good in its characters. Even in the most impossible of situations our main protagonist Parvana strives to give in, and continues to push forward. This is extremely admirable and difficult…

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    This film is extremely effective. 
    It strives to teach a lesson about coming to peace with the hardships of life and accepting them. Also to appreciate those that you do have and find the good in each situation... the real good, the positive things, the ones that really truly care about you. Pushing aside material and bodily wants to find peace in life. 

    But as I watched I found myself struggling with accepting Rubens situation myself. I couldn’t accept the…

  • Driveways

    Driveways

    ★★★★½

    I had a hard time really immersing myself into this story at first. The world i was entering seemed too mundane and simple for my tastes. As I watched I quickly realized that was a big part of the story. The biggest thing I learned from Driveways is to slow down and really enjoy and appreciate all life has to offer. Even the mundane, everyday type things. Driveways evoked every motion i had hidden inside of me, it shows the…

    1BR

    ★★

    This is just something I watched randomly with the girlfriend. I didn’t want to write a review on this movie but I need everyone to know that this is the most mediocre film I have ever seen. It’s cinematography, direction, and aesthetic is so silent and unnoticeable. Anyways this isn’t a review bleh.

  • Bumblebee

    Bumblebee

    ★★★

    Bumblebee was less of a Transformers movie and more of a coming of age story about a teenage girl and her daily problems. Throw in a dead dad, a new romantic interest, and a FUCKING transformer, and our main characters life isn’t so normal anymore.

    There’s really not a ton to say about Bumblebee. It’s fun, it’s got great action, some pretty good acting, and the usual downfalls of plots that include something from another world coming to earth. There’s…

  • The Death of Stalin

    The Death of Stalin

    ★★★½

    Before I start this review I want to make a sort of announcement. I feel as if most of my reviews are very similar and fail to stand out among the thousands of reviews on the same films. So as an attempt to create more interesting reviews I am going to change up my format a little. I will mainly focus on one certain aspect of said film and otherwise make a quick overview of the film as a whole.…
