    Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    ★★★★

    "I think your dong went so deep, it touched my heart."

    My friend had been hyping this one up for quite some time. Normally, I get really concerned when a project is lauded as such, because it makes it harder to enter with little to no expectations. That said, having not seen the trailer nor read the synopsis for this film really benefited, because wow, it was such a really unique and feel-good vibe. I'd recommend going in as I…

    "Broken Pe-nis. Broken Pe-nis."

    Immensely fun and heartwarming Youn Yuh-jung and sure to have a bright future Alan S. Kim absolutely steal the show here. No offence to my TWD day 1 buddy Steven Yuen, but how is he the one getting all the praise in this film? Just like with The Farewell's Zhao Shu-zhen, Yuh-jung undoubtedly deserves a supporting actress nomination to say the least—and b9th actresses remind me if my own gma. Minari is just extremely wholesome content…

    Terror Train

    ★★★½

    "Look, it was supposed to be a simple joke, and it sort of got out of control one year. That's all. Just forget about it." 

    Classic frat/sorority life ruining, dismissed as jokester pranks and youth. But unlike every other Greek life slasher, Terror Train sets the majority of its pseudo-campus themed holiday plot aboard a literal practically interior-designed party train. Murder on the Orient Express meets Sorority Row, starring a fresh off Halloween Jamie Lee Curtis. While the whodunit mystery…

    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★★

    "Here comes the Kryptonite."

    My dad saw a trailer for the film and asked me if it had any connection to the F&F universe. Hours later, we were watching it, and my parents were having a good laugh at how cheesy yet entertaining it is—third time for me. It's dumb fun, but genuinely great in the lead testosterone chemistry. Like the original franchise's Dom & Brian, the titular Hobbs & Shaw share a functioning rival bromance too. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned…

    ★★

    "Tomorrow you'll know I wasn't kidding, and you'll think I was crazy. But I figured it this way: better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime!"

    Oh, I'm sorry. My apologies, that's from the wrong film. Here we go, I think it's this one:

    "All the animals come out at night - whores, skunk pussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets". …

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

    "A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later." - Stanley Kubrick

    This quote from one of the GOATs of cinema really came to mind while experiencing this soon to flop excellent poetic space odyssey. And I make it a point of importance to use the word "odyssey", not because of the obvious comparisons…
