    Not quite my tempo…..

    Whiplash is fucking immaculate. I don’t think I can say enough good things about this movie. It’s so simple in it’s story & setup, trying to pursue greatness at all costs, but the execution is just amazing. Chazelle builds so much tension throughout, especially in the first scene in the band room when Fletcher shows up and they play Whiplash for the first time. The entire movie, it’s brutal to watch Neiman strive for his version of…

    First thought, Jordan Peele is fantastic. I love his vision, the aesthetic he builds, the narrative he weaves. Coming off of Get Out, it would have been easy to have a letdown for his second film. But I think Us is on par in many ways, even if it didn’t reach the cultural significance that Get Out did.

    Touching more on his vision & flair. The movie is LITTERED with visual nods to anything and everything regarding connection, doubles, etc. His…

    So self aware, fun, and hilarious. Will Arnett has the most incredible Batman voice. And Michael Cera as Dick Grayson was fantastic (well kids can be cruel.....)

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

    Enjoyable! Marvel has a great track record of just not missing. That being said, this definitely is just the lowest stakes Marvel movie ever. Being set in the past, it doesn't really connect to the larger MCU going forward (other than the stinger). You can't help but kind of think, well damn this was good, but why didn't this come out 5 years ago?

    Even so, it was still an exciting action movie full of cool set pieces, some funny…

    You'll shoot your eye out, kid.

    I triple-dog-dare anyone to say this movie isn’t good. The nostalgia runs deep here as this was our family’s Christmas movie growing up. I remember the 24 hours of A Christmas Story on TNT every year. I love everything about it. The desire for the ONE Christmas gift: the Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle. Fra-GEE-Lay & the lamp (it’s a major award!). Ovaltine. Oh Fudge. The deranged Easter bunny. It’s…

    Fish eye lens was a choice. Great cast of characters. Very confusing plot at times but wrapped up nicely. Felt very Ocean’s 11-y, in a good way.
