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+)

Quickie: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) ★★★★★

Rewatched 2001 A Space Odyssey today. It’s shocking to hear it has been 50 years since the film’s release. It’s hands down the most cinematically gorgeous movie ever conceived, and still has one of the most puzzling yet fascinating storylines. Kubrick’s masterpiece shall never die! (Verdict: A+)

Quick-Thoughts: Gemini ★★★

The first act of Gemini was magnificent due to its inserts of top-notch acting and compelling themes. Unfortunately, the rest of the movie transforms into your typical, predictable, murder mystery which definitively never rightly goes anywhere. (Verdict: C+)

Quick-Thoughts: Love, Simon ★★★

I’m so greatful that I saw Love Simon before it was removed from my local theaters. It was just downright beautiful, and it thankfully didn’t try to glorify its message in the process. (Verdict: B-)

Quick-Thoughts: A Quiet Place ★★★★

A Quiet Place⁠ ⁠was a tense, heart-warming joyride. It isn’t anything groundbreaking nor mind-blowing for the genre, but is was certainly an impressive thriller debut from  John Krasinski. (Verdict: B+)

Quick-Thoughts: Best F(r)iends: Volume 1 ★★★★

Best F(r)iends was a bizarre, surreal experience, and I mean that in the most approving way possible. It’s nice to see that Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero have crafted something truly original. I’m undeniably psyched to see Volume 2 this June! (Verdict: B+)

Quick-Thoughts: Ready Player One ★★★½

Ready Player One was a visual masterpiece. Every moment in the Oasis was mind blowing to witness. Considering the source material the movie is based off of though, it’s dissapointing to see that the film’s storytelling is muddled. Still had a blast watching it! (Verdict: A Generous “B”)

Quick-Thoughts: Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs ★★★★

Isle Of Dogs was a delightful treat that was insanely hilarious! All though it certainly wasn’t one of Wes Anderson’s best, it still lived up to the anticipation. (Final Verdict: A-)

Quick-Thoughts: Tomb Raider (2018) ★★★

The new Tomb Raider movie is officially the first ever “good” video game film adaptation. Alicia Vikander killed it as Lara Croft! (Verdict: C+)
