    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    I spent an unreasonably long time thinking about how to write about how hot Carrie Coon is in this movie. In conclusion: very hot.

    In regards to the other, certainly already worn out topics; it's almost sad how poorly the og cast is tacked onto this and baffling how heavily Jason Reitman seems to have been forcusing on "the weight his father's legacy" or whatever to miss that his father's film in question is just a straight up comedy with…

    Schrader 👍

  • Jobs

    Jobs

    I've been sick all week and then on top of that I accidentally watched Jobs, a film that leaves no strong impressions, neither negative nor positive, other than "boy, this sure ain't Steve Jobs (2015). Now that's a great movie.

  • The Beguiled

    The Beguiled

    A film about the effect Clint Eastwood has on women (all people?) and absolutely nothing else.

  • Some Kind of Beautiful

    Some Kind of Beautiful

    I did miss the first 30 minutes, but this is charming as hell, what's with the heavy dislike in here? Like Pierce, I am in love with Salma Hayek. I don't know why I have not seen From Dusk Till Dawn yet, or for that matter almost any other prominent films from the Salma Hayek canon.

  • The Man in the Iron Mask

    The Man in the Iron Mask

    Good movie. All for one, one for all, all that. Good stuff.

  • Red Notice

    Red Notice

    Does not really feel like a real movie that I have now seen (probably never would've seen it at all had my dad not wanted to), watched in two sittings 32 hours apart, which I never do, and lacks a proper climax or even a final act, but also easily digestible with low expectations. Looks like a waste of $200m.

  • Hulk

    Hulk

    ★★★

    The whole general perception of this with its mere 2,3 average, an average only 3 points higher than something as incompetent as say Suicide Squad, feels very forced. I feel I can say this as for years this has been maybe the only non-Blade marvel film from this century that I have not seen, despite my dad always talking very highly of it, and all that is just because of spotty effects, overt style, some goofyness and most importantly a…

  • The Comeback Trail

    The Comeback Trail

    Not very good, but at least it went by fast.

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die

    ★★★

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

    Bond was back for a two-day encore at the local theater after it's original four-week run last month, and I figured I've finally gathered enough effort to go watch it again after being immensely disappointed by it that opening day. And I kinda hate to admit it, but I sort of liked it this time. I'm still mostly mixed on almost the whole film; it achieves nothing it shouldn't be able to with a 30 minutes shorter runtime, the whole…

  • Rocky

    Rocky

    It's pretty weird that I'd never seen Rocky completely. I've seen IV and Balboa at least twice both and Creed countless times (and Creed II once as well), but only some bits of Rocky from tv. Or well actually watching it I realised I have seen almost every scene, just not necessarily in order.

    It's a good movie, maybe not my favourite of the series even from the ones I have already seen, but it's the clear why it's one…

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    I was ready to be disappointed by this at some point in the runtime considering the overall mixed-positive reception, which in addition, when added together with the broad subject matter, remided me of Promising Young Woman, which I loathed. I'm also not generally not the biggest Wright fan; with the exception of Scott Pilgrim, which rules, though I don't dislike any of his other work either. Just not one of my guys. But I digged this! A fun, anxiety inducing and ghoul heavy ride.
