  • A Clockwork Orange

    A Clockwork Orange

    ★★

    This movie's not as great as Good Burger (1997) the more I think about it. Maybe if British people could think of a more interesting way to decorate their dystopian futures than tacky ass Hobby Lobby wallpaper and characters that talk in 10th layer of hell Cockney, maybe I'd actually give a shit about the movie your sophomore year of college communication arts major girlfriend has on her dorm wall

  • Come and See

    Come and See

    ★★★★½

    It's somewhat hard to put into words what kind of experience Come and See is. It's a film that, although fairy understandable given the understand we have in foresight as to the horrors and atrocities committed by Nazi Germany, is somewhat hard to get across as well as this film does. For the previous three weeks I have viewed around 14-15 films revolving around Soviet involvement during World War II and relating to said era. In most viewings of these…

  • Promare

    Promare

    ★★★½

    After a few months of seeing this movie on my feed I was always curious to see how this movie looked all the way through. I eventually came to understand basic plot elements but I never knew the entire plot so I was interested in seeing how my first impressions since the release of the original trailer to all the fan art I see time and time again.
    Overall the animation is superb, Trigger on their A-team rarely ever miss…

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★½

    I finished the movie with more questions than I figured and not in a good speculative sense but more in a 'why do people like this movie again?' sense

  • Trauma

    Trauma

    ★★½

    A fairly enjoyable movie with a few hiccups acting wise but that kinda adds to the enjoyment at times. I liked it a bit although its pacing is all over the places at times. It feels like 20 minutes of the movie could be cut without missing much.

  • Sex Drive

    Sex Drive

    The pacing in this movie is some of the worst I’ve felt in a long while. The halfway point of the movie feels like it occurs at the end of the first arc. The one enjoyable part of the movie occurs in the final 10 minutes and is honestly kinda fun but holy shit I can barely remember the order of events and I just finished watching it. So few jokes got a legitimate laugh out of me and most…

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★★

    For what its worth, it's not horrible. Not even mediocre. The first half of the film is a bit janky as it kinda shifts from a bunch of different perspectives and it's unclear who we're following but after the first 20 minutes we first find our protagonist. The first half also has most of our more political dialogue between the minor characters which mostly consists of surface level, facebook conversation-esque discourse. After that, once more of the action scenes begin…

  • Juno

    Juno

    ★★

    Juno feels like I'm watching my middle school rumor drama unfold but everyone wears those $10 graphic tees you get at Target and kickstarter music plays in the background every so often.

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★

    back at it again with the 2 am mucho mango lynch viewing damn that was pretty good

    really like the part with the two tiny guys, would recommend

  • 2012

    2012

    I remember as a 9-year-old how my friends talked about this movie when it first previewed. As a timid child the premise of the movie horrified me, and as an adult I still am horrified, for entirely different reasons.

    So many of the plot lines and characters that this movie follows either end up nowhere or feel so flung around it's a chore. Halfway through the movie someone calls up their son as they're about to be hit and up…
