Quick-Thoughts: Best F(r)iends: Volume 2 ★★★★

Best theater experience of the year so far. The crowd was wild! Best F(r)iends Volume 2 was just as berserk as its predecessor. It ascended a startling amount of intensity and amped up its David Lynch-like tone. Please, Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero, don’t stop making movies! Also, Rick Edwards’s performance was next level iconic. […]

Quick-Thoughts: Upgrade ★★★★½

Upgrade might just be this year’s biggest surprise so far. You can tell Leigh Whannell wanted it to appeal to both fans of 70s action-flicks and modern sci-fi fanatics. The direction and camerawork in this film is to be praised and movie-lovers who miss action blockbusters that take their time within presentation, should most certainly […]

Quick-Thoughts: First Reformed ★★★★

First Reformed marks Paul Schrader’s return to filmmaking mastery. It’s a haunting, politically significant piece that expresses a mortifying look into the psychological loss of sanity. A24 has released another original gem that challenges the modern industry. (Verdict: A-) This Movie is a Part of My List: The Best Films of 2018

Quick-Thoughts: Solo: A Star Wars Story ★★½

So the Force Awakens was solid, Rogue One was decent, and the Last Jedi was mediocre. Where does Solo rank among these recent entries in the Star Wars saga? Well let’s just say, it continues the progressive downhill of Lucasfilms’ attempts to revive the Star Wars magic. It kills me to say Solo: A Star […]

Quick-Thoughts: Deadpool 2 ★★★½

1st Viewing: Deadpool 2 was tremendously hilarious. All though its narrative is occasionally clunky and its attempts to be emotionally compelling feel sometimes unbalanced, this was nonetheless, a solid follow up. Also, the car chase sequence was comedic perfection! (Verdict: B) 2nd Viewing: The first one is my religion, but Deadpool 2 isn’t nearly. It’s still engaging and […]

Quick-Thoughts: Tully ★★★½

Tully was a delightful yet darkly truthful tale of the struggles of motherhood. All though, the third act is a bit droll and this isn’t a film I’d necessarily see again, it’s still worth watching once for the performances from Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davis. (Verdict: B)

Quickie: Iron Man (2008) ★★★★

I reminisce what made the first Iron Man so clever. It arguably has the best screenplay out of any of the MCU entries, and Robert Downey Jr’s performance is striking. All though, I think the third act is a bit fallacious, the first two acts are certainly imposing. (Verdict: B+)

Quick-Thoughts: Avengers: Infinity War ★★★★

Avengers Infinity War is the definition of mania. Everything just finally unravels on screen and it certainly messes with your mentality if you’ve been sticking around with the franchise for the past ten years. I’m more than pleased with this exhilarating MCU flick. (Verdict: A-)

Quick-Thoughts: You Were Never Really Here ★★★★

Lynne Ramsay’s elegant, hypnotic direction is what makes You Were Never Really Here stand out. Joaquin Phoniex has once again proven to never dissapoint when it comes to his acting ability. Also, Jonny Greenwood’s score was exceptionally vibrant. (Verdict: B+)
