    Coming Home in the Dark

    ★★★

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

    The first 18 minutes is perfection. It’s some of the most unnerving cinema I’ve ever seen. The film does continue to be quite disturbing in parts. The main problem with the film is due to the story. What seems like a random act turns out to be calculated. The whole story unfolds and it’s just not that interesting. It’s more terrifying if there is no reason, just a chance encounter. Imagine the movie Sleepers but the grown young kids turn out to be complete psychopaths. The gruesome violence, opening scene, and great acting gives this film a pass.

    Basically this is a PSA about the dangers of coffee.

I prefer Shakespeare’s tragedies over his comedies but some of his comedies are on point, like original rom-coms.

    It’s so fitting that a Coen would write and direct this…

    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★

    This is just pure entertainment from start to finish. It’s fun and dumb in the best possible way. This entry is super different than the first three films, not bad different just different. It’s like The Matrix smoked pot, like a relaxed fit Matrix, like it’s on a nice vacation. It’s much lighter and easy going and it works. The action is masterful and it’s wonderful to see the band back together. 

    Anyway my black cat named Dignan is the…
