    Red Cliff

    ★★★★

    A war between Chinas Three Kingdoms is underway - forces of evil rise, alliances are formed, and sacrifices are made. 

    Absolutely stunning cinematography, a story that is actually compelling and worthwhile, and ginormous battle scenes. This is an epic just like ‘Spartacus’, ‘Ben Hur’ and even ‘Lord of the Rings’. 


    I find it wild in itself how projects this massive even get finished 

    Also, it’s a major cliffhanger, as this is part one of two 😩

  • The Family Album

    The Family Album

    ★★★★

    A unique documentary experiment that utilizes old home videos from families living in the 1920s through 1930s, to create a picture of what life is, was, and still is today.

    I don't watch many documentaries (though I really need to), but stuff like this and 'Man with a Movie Camera' really show you how much life can mean.

    ★★★★

    There’s a 15 year old and a 25 year old. He likes her, but she’s too old for him. 

    That’s about a simple as a premise as you need, and with any other director this could’ve came out bland and flavorless. But this is Paul Thomas Anderson we’re talking about, a man who cranks out some fine cinema every few years, and this just proves he’s still on top.


    I didn’t love this or fall in love with everything going on like ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, but I did like it very very much.

  • Space Jam: A New Legacy

    Space Jam: A New Legacy

    ★★½

    Call this movie a mess, call it one big hot bowl of product placement and cash grabbing for Warner Bros, and call Lebron's acting worse than terrible, BUT... you can't deny it's entertainment factor.

    Maybe it's just my small brain, but I enjoyed quite a few things in this. Yo and when Big Chungus shows up - immediate 10/10 movie.
