    Leave No Trace

    ★★★★★

    A beautiful, grounded movie which needs few words to convey what the two main characters are going through. While their unbreakable loving relationship is at the core, it's their growing differences which pull the strings, reminding me how human humans can be.

  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    While Michael Dougherty wonderfully joggled with the ridiculous in "Trick 'r treat" and "Krampus" with an apparent effortlessness, this movie is ridiculous in the worst of ways. It takes itself far too serious and entangles itself with its unnecessary convoluted plot. The fun monster movie gets side-lined for endless scenes of exposition, carried by shells of characters who make stupid decisions every ten minutes and talk like they are the most unorganized military baboons. The monster fights themselves are shrouded…

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Finally Peter Parker is allowed to be a dork again. Finally Peter Parker is allowed to make juvenile mistakes and fall on his snout again. Finally Peter Parker isn't told to act responsibly, he learns to be responsible through being active throughout and being the main driving force for the progression of the plot. Finally Peter Parker isn't overpowered and actually stands in the shadow of more mighty heroes for once. Finally Peter Parker is shown to be just the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man who's our all favorite.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    This is not my personal favorite MCU movie because of all the spectacle and extravagance. It's my favorite MCU movie because it's an impressive cinematic accomplishment. It must have been such an impossible task to joggle all those characters around in one single film while also not making it feel crowded, overstuffed and exhausting, yet the Russos did that all with such levity that Infinity War flies by so fast that you want to re-experience it immediately.

  • Captain America: The First Avenger

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    The first third of this movie is superb. Chris Evens was born to play Steve Rogers. His superpower has always been his heart of gold and standing up for in what he believes. Especially in those early scenes you get a true understanding of who Rogers is and why he'll always be the leader of the Avengers.
    Unfortunately, once he gets injected with superhero steroids, the movie itself abandons its rather grounded tone and goes full out convoluted. Hugo Weaving…

  • Sausage Party

    Sausage Party

    "Oh look, the sausage said fu**! But it looks like a movie for kids! How hilarious!"
    The range of Sausage Party's humor never exceeds gross-out comedy. The movie exclusively relies on "Oh-God-how-can-they-show-that" or shock humor which is deprived of any actual comedic talent. This movie only exists so seventh graders can go all "tihihihi" on the schoolyard.

    Seth Rogan can do a lot better than this abomination.

  • Kong: Skull Island

    Kong: Skull Island

    Vietkong. Mmmhh... VietKONG. King Kong. VietKingKong. Vietnam. King Kong in Vietnam!

    That had to be the only thought process put into this mess of a B-Movie that wanted to be fun but got stuck with its underwritten dull characters who sadly steal most of the screen time.

  • Jesus, Bro!

    Jesus, Bro!

    Good job, Brad! You managed to say far more about faith than 90% of religious movies out there. Knowing the entire cast also gave me Infinity War vibes!

  • Starship Troopers

    Starship Troopers

    I love this movie for how unreserved it tries to offend the audience by glorifying violence and turning war into a good thing. Every problem can be resolved through violence and not one character learns a thing at the end. It does it all with such a clever self-awareness that you can't but laugh that at those who think this is genuine war propaganda. What a wonderfully ridiculous movie.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars should have stayed in a galaxy far far away after Return of the Jedi.

    Because it would be so great if that dead cow could also lay eggs.

    This movie was so touching that it made me researched my own ancestors. Turned out that most of them had been Nazis, but still...
