    Mank

    ★★★

    This movie was nominated for an Oscar, and I hate to be that guy, but it HAD to have some political motivation... because this movie wasn't good.

    I feel like the plot catfished me, as I came into this thinking it would be about Mank writing the Citizen Kane script. But it was really about the man and people around him in the golden age of cinema in the 1930's. Now this isn't so bad, as the flashbacks (and their…

  • Ocean's Twelve

    Ocean's Twelve

    ★★

    The most disappointing sequel to one of my favorite movies, and overall just not that good in general.

    Without the all-star cast in this movie, it would be next to the bottom for me, but since I love both Clooney and Pitt, it gets a 2 point bump.

    The plot is the receiving end of a revenge plot... Wait, the receiving end? Yeah, that's what I'm saying. The plot is yet convoluted again with a female, however it's Dusty that…

    tick, tick...BOOM!

    ★½

    The inherent problem with plays is the lack of a feeling for conflict. One scene someone is diagnosed with brain cancer, the next they're jumping through rainbows with unicorns. It just doesn't work, and this film is nothing different.

    Based on a real life story, the layout of the film is nice, being told from a perspective of the main character who has lived it all, and getting us through some of the boring scenes with humor. However, and this…

    The Social Network

    ★★★★★

    This movie is like heroin. I want to watch this movie 24/7. I want to live it. I want to change my major to computer science and screw over elites. I want to listen to the soundtrack while I commit tax fraud. I want to talk like I'm Aaron Sorkin's child.

    Edit 1: May never make a review of this movie since it will probably be the length of the entire Harry Potter series.

    Edit 2: watch the first 10 minutes of this movie everyday and you'll lose 10 years of your lifespan I think.

  • The King's Man

    The King's Man

    ★★½

    One of my most anticipated films of the year, which is saying a lot considering No Time To Die came out, was about what I expected.

    My friend said that the Kingsmen movies aren't necessarily amazing movies, but they "make you feel good." This is a pretty good description of the film. It moves well, does comedy on levels that are almost at Marvel levels, and most importantly makes you feel like a playboy assassin once you leave the theater.…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    No rating, no review. Just want to make everyone mad and say this movie was JUST OK.

  • House of Gucci

    House of Gucci

    ★★½

    This film had one of the best actor lineups for a film, as well as some of the best trailer music I've heard, and while these were big draws for me, they were just about all I liked about it.

    The plot, which is based on a true story, isn't exactly the most interesting of plots. It seemed like the multiple writers wanted to all make different genres and couldn't agree on one so they went in different directions. It…

  • The Game

    The Game

    ★★★

    This film is not exactly the best at anything, in fact it really isn't all that good overall, but for some reason this movie is incredibly watchable.

    This review will be a lot shorter than most of my reviews since I watched it about 3 weeks ago. However, the most amazing thing about this movie was the overall feel. It's such a "cozy" movie, and when blended with the pacing of it, makes it incredibly watchable.

    Like I said, the…

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★★

    Wow... I mean, this is without a doubt the best movie I saw this year and I don't even think it's close. I went into it with no idea of what to expect and couldn't have been more satisfied.

    The plot overall is really interesting, and since I love the sixties, artsy films, and the idea of time travel, this movie was perfect for me (it's actually proving to be really hard to write this because I literally just want…

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service

    ★★★★½

    This was always a film that I wanted to come around to but for whatever reason I didn't. However, I think that missing out on this film for so long was a big mistake.

    One of my favorite tropes in films is the gentlemen spies, which is no surprise to anyone that knows me (James Bond cough cough). This plot is like another Bond movie, and it's a really good one at that. It's an origin story, and considering I…

  • The Big Short

    The Big Short

    ★★★★½

    This was another film that I always wanted to watch, mostly because of the star-studded cast, but the plot of the film seemed more interesting to me now more than ever.

    First of all, this isn't the most beautiful film I've ever seen, but the shot presentation almost helps the characters develop without the characters doing anything at all. The slow shots that are super zoomed in on Christian Bale, mixed with the often hectic shots of Steve Carrell make…

  • American Psycho

    American Psycho

    ★★½

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

    While I haven't seen this one 50 times like most of the fans of it have, I've definitely seen certain YouTube clips quite frequently. And it's no surprise as this is one of the most quotable and dark-humored films to ever exist.

    Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman is the epitome of what I want to be like in the future (besides the murdering part stuff). I mean I'm a finance major, I'd love to live in New York (even better if…
