    ★★★★★

    After multiple viewings of this film I grow more impressed with it each time. The atmosphere, screenplay, and acting is phenomenal. Hugh Jackman’s performance is astounding from beginning to end. In what I believe is his best film to date, every time he enters a scene his presence is enthralling. Supporting actor Jake Gyllenhaal also knocks it out of the park as the two deliver some of the finest acting I’ve seen this decade. Additionally, the script of this film…

  • It Comes at Night

    It Comes at Night

    ★★★★

    A truly unsettling experience goes hand and hand with the agony these characters face throughout the film. It Comes at Night demands deep reflection to the misery that embodies this post-apocalyptic world, yearning for answers that director Trey Edward Shults leaves open to the viewer. The screenplay is radical and unforgiving in its pessimistic tone, while the families fight for survival against an unknown plague. No scene can be overlooked as everything comes together to create an organic encounter with a genre so often restrained by similarities.

    Dead Man's Shoes

    ★★★★½

    Revenge is a tough concept in cinema to pull off. It’s been explored a million times and while some movies create success with it, a majority fall flat. Dead Mans Shoes does neither. It knocks it out of the fucking park. This may be the most organic experience with the revenge trope I’ve ever seen, and it’s executed brilliantly. No over the top theatrics, no flashy CGI action scenes, no unconvincing crying and try-hard acting. Just a man avenging his…

    Killing Them Softly

    ★★★½

    The first time I watched this film I felt that it was underwhelming. Once it appeared on Netflix I decided to give it a second chance. The cast was simply too superb for this to be as bad as I remembered. Thankfully, I was right. Although Brad Pitt is the lead role, it doesn’t feel that way. Highly acclaimed Ben Mendelsohn once again delivers a convincing performance as the supporting actor. The late great James Gandolfini makes every minute of…

  • Insidious: The Last Key

    Insidious: The Last Key

    A disgrace compared to the first film. This franchise unfortunately lost the touch it achieved in the first chapter. Jump scares will only get you so far. The scariest thing about this film was that I paid to see it.
