    Don't try to understand it... FEEL IT.

    Pure F*CKING insanity. Shares more in common with Pink Floyd: The Wall than it does a traditional action blockbuster nowadays. A complete experience for the senses that deserves to be seen on the biggest screen possible w/ the best sound system you can scrounge up. Will forever regret not seeing this in an empty IMAX theater like I had the chance t on my birthday, really hope we see a re-release down the…

    Anger is how I felt twenty minutes after finishing this film and realizing that Mads Mikkelsen was the villain in Doctor Strange and not Doctor Strange himself. Big missed opportunity from the Big Boss Kevin Feige. Looks like we'll have to bring him back as Dormammu and give him a whole ass dance sequence in Raimi's Spider-Verse.

    Warmth tale of friendship, finding yourself again, and the pros/cons of alcoholism without glorifying or villainizing it. Lovely lovely film. One of my…

    ★★★★

    Feelin' a bit like John Cassavetes today. Maybe I'll convince my friends that they are wrong for not liking Luchasaurus today, maybe I'll talk shit about Dune in a chat full of Dune lovers, maybe I'll feed my girlfriend herbs and sacrifice my cat for the kooky old next door neighbors. Idk, just feelin' a little risky today.

    Poor Rosemary. Feeling trapped in the POV of this woman as she is being gaslit from all sides and for the most…

    ★★½

    Bounced back and forth from being completely disinterested to the occasional eyebrow raise. My favorite shorts were "The Way Out", "The Accident", and "The Way In". Kind of not shocked that out of the five shorts, the directors who made those three are finding the most success ala Ready Or Not/Scream and The Ritual/Night House. Don't get me wrong the second short was well made, just not interesting to me. But, I thought the fourth might be one of my…

    ★★★★★

    Imagine if Good Time was trapped in a bathroom with the Weeknd trying to grind on it while Adam Sandler was banging on the door outside. Sandler just screaming through the door and basically about to tear the door down Jack Torrance style.

    That is Uncut Gems.

    Once again, Safdie Brothers kill it. Their style shines in Uncut Gems. Unrelenting pace. Keeping the grimy claustrophobic tone for over 2 hours and never letting up. They have instantly become two of…
