  • Leave No Trace

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    It's haunting. Better than most modern horror movies and it does not have one element of horror in it. Makes you think about how even a false rumor can ruin your life.

  • Before Sunrise

    Before Sunrise

    It might be only dialog, but this is genuine love captured in a bottle. Their chemistry is what makes Before Sunrise my favorite movie about love of all time.

  • Wind River

    Wind River

    Sobering and honest. You want to swallow but it's hard.

  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    This is an exceptional movie about hate and love and how the one effects the other. It joggles its masterfully characters around that you can't help but feel for every single one of them at the end.

  • Swiss Army Man

    Swiss Army Man

    Throughly enjoyed the weirdness. They made fart-jokes work again. That alone deserves an entry in the book of most "Out-there" movies.

    Worthy sequel to Deadly Hollows.

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Blade Runner 2049

    Not only the best Hollywood movie of the year, but a true masterpiece that exceeds its already exceptional predecessor. The cinematography... oh the cinematography.

  • The Haunting of Hill House

    The Haunting of Hill House

    I usually don't like modern horror. Mostly because of cheap jump-scared, freshly cooked up material from the 70s, expandable characters and horrible CGI. And here comes Hill House, 2018.
    I have never loved horror as much as I did with Hill House. Sure, Shining came to my mind, Alien, Halloween, The Thing etc. I've thought long about it, but after watchin Hill House for the 5th time... I cannot express the love I share for this series. This is a modern anomaly. PLEASE. WATCH. IT. Because I cannot find a single thing I don't love about The Haunting Of Hill House.
