Two of the year’s best films. The Power of the Dog It’s rare that a movie built primarily on subtext and ambiguities is this laser-focused and resonant with its themes. That just speaks to the immense talent of Australian writer/director Jane Campion and her superb quartet of actors. The Power of the Dog isn’t justContinue reading “Gay Cowboys and Lesbian Nuns: The Power of the Dog and Benedetta reviews”

2021 Movie Reviews: House of Gucci / Ghostbusters: Afterlife / King Richard / C’mon C’mon / Home Alone 6 / The Humans

There are parts of the exorbitantly long House of Gucci that seem like a very straight-laced, well-shot drama and there are other parts that seem like campy excerpts from Real Housewives of New Jersey. What you end up with is aContinue reading “2021 Movie Reviews: House of Gucci / Ghostbusters: Afterlife / King Richard / C’mon C’mon / Home Alone 6 / The Humans”
A surprisingly good amount of films touch upon Thanksgiving yet it’s not really a holiday that prompts traditional movie-watching. Along with Christmas comes a whole bunch of movies people watch every year – Christmas Vacation, Die Hard, of course, and Scrooged, my own personal Christmas Eve movie tradition. Halloween has a whole genre dedicated toContinue reading “Top 10 Movies You Should Watch Thanksgiving Week w/ Genevieve Rice”
A good movie, a disappointing movie, and an actual wedding. Belfast ‘Flabbergasted’ is the best word for how I feel about Belfast‘s ecstatic reception and resulting Oscar buzz. Are we as a society so starved for a movie that’s safe and non-challenging, that we’ll take the blandest, slowest, least specific, mediocre grandma schmaltz imaginable andContinue reading “2021 Movie Reviews: Belfast / Passing / My Friends’ Wedding”
There have been so many mouth-watering, gorgeously presented food scenes in films over the years so it’s hard for me to pick just ten. But out of the 3,000+ movies I’ve seen, these are the ten that have really stuck with me and I often think about when I’m hungry. Being on a fairly restrictiveContinue reading “Top 10 Movie Meals I Lust Over Since Starting My Diet”
A terrible movie, two mediocre movies, and an experience to cleanse the soul. The Eternals I awoke Saturday morning to my roommate pounding hard on my bedroom door. “The cops are here, there’s been a break-in.” “Oh fuck, the bastards stole my TV…” I thought to myself. I climbed out of bed, slid on someContinue reading “2021 Movie Reviews: The Eternals / Spencer / Finch / Paranormal Activity 7: Next of Kin”
A24 produces some amazing movies and even the misses aren’t absolutely terrible movies. Ok, well, the #1 spot is, but the rest are somewhat redeemable. Keep in mind this is my own personal opinion and not what I’m declaring as law. If you disagree, let me know in the comments section, ya bastard. 10. TheContinue reading “Top 10 Worst A24 Films”

Two disappointments and a wonderful surprise. Last Night in Soho Last Night in Soho is the first Edgar Wright film that feels like a downright squandering of potential, but it’s also the film most outside of his comfort zone, so I give him props for trying. The movie opens incredibly strong with an interesting, 60sContinue reading “2021 Movie Reviews: Last Night in Soho / Antlers / Anything for Jackson”
