    One set of choices and I exist in all of them, simultaneously. I'm more free than you can ever imagine. I've seen the skylines of a thousand cities. I've looked into the eyes of a hundred grandkids. The ones that I love the most....they look like you.

    Wow. A cathartic experience in a less-than-perfect movie. I think the comparisons to Synchronic are impossible to avoid - the score, acting, editing are all way better than Synchronic but I can't say…

    Let me start by saying this is a high end 8/10 or low end 9/10, nothing to rush to see. But if the philosophy of sex interests you, this is a respectable film. Much, much better than Gaspar Noe's Love.

    The acting, camerawork and dialogue are excellent. It's not the most interesting movie but the narration and storytelling are tied together with the story so perfectly. It feels like visual literature and this is truly art - like all of…

    One of those good story/bad movie types. It doesn't all work, but it didn't ever seem to get boring to my roommates or to me for the 2nd time around. Richard Kelly definitely has a peculiar mind and maybe I'm allowing some of the extra weirdness to pass just for Donnie Darko's sake. It's messy and not always pretty to look at, but the unique story is enough to keep me interested personally.

    My roommates are in a mood for…

    Ready Player One with way more jokes but less heart. This was way better than whatever type of fortnite/gta fest I thought I was going to get. It actually works, in its own world's rules at least, and there's a decent amount of fun scenes in the 2nd half. It's a pretty good cast too, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I really didn't like Taika's performance. The character Taika plays isn't supposed to be likeable of course,…

    This is a thinker. I feel like I need to sleep on this to really digest it, but I also don't think I could dive in and break it all down without another watch.

    Beautifully shot in a dream like world and a hypnotic choir carries out throughout most of the film. It's a fairy tale but never like I've seen before. The editing was actually pretty awful to begin, but it calms down and the stretched out scenes suck…

    "You know something, Utivich? I think this just might be my masterpiece."

    Not my favorite QT but definitely the best movie he's made. That climax is one of the greatest cinema has to offer. Hell of a setup with the most satisfying pay-off.
