    The Green Knight

    ★★★★

    The Green Knight is a brilliantly directed, enigmatic tale of a man who is looking to make a name for himself by almost any means necessary. It’s a film that I felt completely swept up in throughout most of its runtime, even though there were many moments that confused the hell out of me. I enjoyed watching it, though to be honest, I’m not even sure what I watched!

    One of the biggest reasons to see the film, is due…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is perhaps the most unapologetically “itself” movie that I’ve seen in a long time. It’s balls-to-the-wall ridiculous and wears it’s heart (and it’s blood) on it’s sleeve. The movie doesn’t always work, but when it does, it’s a really great time.

    On the whole I believe that I understand the ideas that Kaufman is trying…

    Fear Street: 1994

    ★★

    Perhaps when I look back on the Fear Street trilogy as a whole, I will think more fondly of this entry, but as it stands this was a lackluster slasher film.

    Fear Street: 1994 sets up an interesting world, with a mythology that is entertaining enough to keep the story from being boring. However, the film is ultimately let down by an extremely lackluster cast that has almost no chemistry across the board. At no point did I feel like any of…
