Apr 16, 2021: Sound of Metal, 2019 A stunning movie. I don’t know how well it portrays being deaf, but it moved me with its portrayal of being someone who can hear who suddenly starts …

Apr 16, 2021: Parasite, 2019 - ★★★★ I can’t remember when I watched this but it was a while ago. It was incredibly strange and disturbing and worth watching if those things don’t scare …

Feb 8, 2021: The Lighthouse, 2019 - ★★★★ Buy the ticket, take the ride, smell the farts, be disturbed and left with a lot of questions and a day or so of your inner monologue speaking like a …

Feb 8, 2021: Earwig and the Witch, 2020 - ★ Abrupt ending, animation not great, decent first draft of a story and movie at best

Jan 17, 2021: Promising Young Woman, 2020 - ★★★★ Everyone woman should watch it once. Every man should watch it two or three times. I dinged it a star because there’s a part that’s hard to watch …

Jan 15, 2021: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, 2019 - ★★★★ It simultaneously puts every cynical fight you ever may have had about Mr. Rogers to bed an also manages to humanize him by showing that he was not …

Jan 10, 2021: Hope Gap, 2019 - ★★ Depressing but it has heart. Ending sucked.

Jan 9, 2021: Save Yourselves!, 2020 - ★★★ It’s worth watching but the end was huh?

Jan 5, 2021: Togo, 2019 - ★★★★ This was surprisingly true to the facts I could find. It’s hard to maintain a couple hours of mostly one man yelling “GOOD DOG” at running dogs, but …

Jan 2, 2021: Wild Mountain Thyme, 2020 - ★★★ I guess, based on what the critics say, I’m not supposed to admit I liked this movie, but fuck it. I’ve spent a hundredish minutes on far, far worse …

Dec 30, 2020: Ad Astra, 2019 - ★★★ Brad Pitt was very good in a role I don’t think anyone would expect him to excel in. Beyond that it’s not a great movie and bafflingly underused Ruth …

Dec 26, 2020: Wonder Woman 1984, 2020 - ★ Oof. That did not go well.

Oct 12, 2020: Hubie Halloween, 2020 - ★★½ It was exactly what I thought it would be. Don’t review this thing like it’s suppose to change cinema forever. Watch it like your favorite musician is …

Oct 9, 2020: Midnight Special, 2016 - ★★★ Great bones but a criminal underuse of Kirsten Dunst, overuse of Adam Driver, who is great but whose plot is muddled and doesn’t really justify his …

Sep 12, 2020: One Cut of the Dead, 2017 - ★★★★ Despite how it looks at first, it’s not a horror movie but it’s absolutely worth a watch, especially if you like indie movies. I won’t ruin it by …

Sep 1, 2020: The Peanut Butter Falcon, 2019 - ★★★★ Great performances from the main dudes and the main lady, but the end was too abrupt

Aug 26, 2020: Project Power, 2020 - ★★★ The actor that plays Robin is really good. Her hoodie being Robin colors is an nice touch. It’s worth watching once.

Aug 23, 2020: Host, 2020 - ★★★½ Perfectly paced and does the horror via video call thing very well.

Aug 13, 2020: Jurassic Park, 1993 - ★★★★★ Still a great watch all these years later.
