    2021 RankedHERE

    I have never seen the Broadway show but I had listened to all the songs and had a good idea what to expect from the story of Dear Evan Hansen, it was quite honestly quite high on my list of anticipated movies for the year, and although this appears to be an extremely unpopular opinion, I really liked the film. I’ll start with the obvious negatives, while it’s clear the main character is supposed to…

    Malignant, the new original horror film from James Wan, follows a woman who starts having visions of people getting murdered and realizes that these murders are actually happening in real life. As a basic plot outline, those are pretty much the nuts and bolts of the story, but the film is honestly so much more than that, Wan takes some massive swings that worked for me on most occasions. This film is completely insane essentially…

    Denis Villeneuve RankedHERE

    The lone film I hadn’t seen from Denis Villeneuve, Incendies, follows twins as they journey to the Middle East to find answers about their mother’s mysterious history. This film hit me like a ton of bricks to be honest, I wasn’t sure exactly where this was going until the third act, which not only wrapped up the story nicely but also elevated the entire film to a whole different level. It…

    Denis Villeneuve RankedHERE

    Before next month’s release of Dune, I plan on going through the filmography of Denis Villeneuve, who is easily one of my favourite directors working today and while he has a couple smaller films made before this one, Polytechnique seems to be where he started gaining attention for his skills. This is based on the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre in Montreal and Villeneuve is able to craft a respectful retelling with…

    2019 RankedHERE

    Uncut Gems is a wild ride that follows a gambling addict as he gets in trouble with loansharks and tries to retrieve a special gem in order to pay them off. Adam Sandler absolutely kills it in this movie, when he wants to be this man can act almost as well as anyone, he’s so believable as this shifty guy with many problems that he continues to only make worse. The entire film is just…
