    Everybody Wants Some!!

    ★★★★½

    In almost every comedic movie I've ever seen, no matter how funny the overall film is, there's going to be moments of drama. It seems all comedic writers need to channel their inner Billy Shakespeare. What I adore about Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some is the closest we get to drama is the comment made by Jake, the character most of the movie is seen through, about Super Baseball Scout Pete Ward, not being real. The tension lasts for seconds,…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    Sometimes we romanticize the wrong people. Killers, thieves, bandits etc etc. QT, never known for passing History class, does something so right, I can’t stop smiling. Instead of painting some sympathetic picture of the Manson Family, he picks Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate as his rightful muse. The passion in her presence is contagious. She doesn’t have a lot of lines, but this is her movie. Without her character, none of this would be possible.

    Brad and Leo are real movie…

  • Sentinelle

    Sentinelle

    ★★

    Simply, not a good movie.

    Ouch, Sentinelle is almost not even worth writing about. The film is about as dull as dull can be.  Sentinelle is a snooze fest. It is a cure for insomnia. Olga is not the problem. She does okay with what was given to her. There is a cool bathroom fight. So, I guess that is a plus.

    Sentinelle is now on Netflix if you want to see for yourself. Perhaps, you will get more out of your view?

  • Dreamcatcher

    Dreamcatcher

    ★★

    Dreamcatcher had a lot of potential to be the next Scream or Urban Legend. Unfortunately, it gets so lost in its story, it never recovers. 

    The film tries too hard to be something it isn’t. It should’ve been a badass slasher with a good cast. Instead, we get an art film disguised as a horror slasher. 

    I’m left disappointed with Dreamcatcher, but at least the movie poster looks cool. 

    Watch at your own risk.

    Whiplash

    ★★★★★

    Damien Chezelle's tale of a boy, his drums, and a teacher that speaks ever so loudly, and carries the biggest stick of badass this side of the Academy Awards, in one of the most heart pounding cardiac arrest breathtaking intense movies I've ever seen. The opening beat. The opening shot. The first time J.K. Simmons speaks. Groovy funky jazzy music makes all movies better. RIFIFI is the shit. Carter Burke? I knew Miles Teller was going to be special after…

  • Hell or High Water

    Hell or High Water

    ★★★★★

    Hell or High Water might be the most adult film I've seen this decade. No gimmicks. No juvenile tendencies. No bull. No cheap shots. It's a Deep Fried Wild West Western Texas Noir, filmed in New Mexico, but it's Texas to the bone. 

    Jeff Bridges is the cop. Chris Pine is the robber. However, they're both duel-protagonists. The outlaw in me wanted Mr Pine to win the duel. While my conscience cheered on Mr Bridges. Both, have polar opposite partners.…
