  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems


    Sandler pulls off the best acting of his career yet, so honest and exact that at times you really think you know him from here, and nowhere else. He's painfully real. Brilliant acting aside the movie is just breathtaking; the action never stops, a lot is happening all the freakin' time. The chaotic prevalent music matches the chaotic life of main character to give it a very special flow.

  • Bird Box

    Bird Box


    The script and how the plot unravels is terribly undecided. All the possible attraction that the movie could possibly have is killed off by the dramatic flashbacks. It made the issue at hand insignificant. I didn't want to know about the past, this could be such a good thriller but it was wasted away. In a nutshell, take "A Quiet Place" and add shitload of soap opera to it. I just wanted it to stop.

  • The Dead Don't Die

    The Dead Don't Die


    I really love most of his films, Limits of Control and Paterson excluded. Extremely excited I sat down to watch this movie and the whole time I felt like it was a really bad joke and I wasn't in on it. A horror comedy but obviously I wasn't scared, amused, or laughing. Oh no, I did laugh, there's a scene where the third wall is broken, Murray and Driver mention Jim (the director) out of the blue and to no effect at all, I did laugh there; Laughed at how painfully lame it was.

  • The Irishman

    The Irishman


    A mixture of all the mafia movies he's ever made and not in a good way. Except for the acting there's not much to appreciate. It's almost never captivating, and all that happens you can see it coming miles away. The only new thing is the subtle details and the objectivity of the main character that was never present before in similar movies, meaning how different he is as a father and a murderer. I expected much more, and that’s part of the problem; it’s the legendary Martin Scorsese!

  • Ad Astra

    Ad Astra


    All I can say is this could be so much better. It's a rescue mission in space movie with not much creativity. The acting is really good, the litttle acting there is to do. The script doesn't have much to offer. The nihilistic narration of the main character about how now we have ruined the whole world lacks real conviction and coherence. Not much science is thrown in there neither which for an space movie is another negative. Cinematography is the movie's silverlining, it's beautiful to look at.
