Morbius – A total trainwreck from start to finish, this Sony MCU entry is by far one of the worst movies of the year and it’s only April. Popcorn movie or not, this is not a good way to spend your box office time and money.
The Endless – A precursor to Synchronic, #TheEndless is another Benson & Moorehead slow burn thriller with plenty of Lovecraft inspiration.
Dr. Strangelove – The ultimate wartime satire from Stanley Kubrick, Dr Strangelove is a timeless classic.
95/100 Watchable Minutes: With an extremely long and well earned 3 hour run time, The Batman does occasionally suffer from pacing issues and overly indulgent moody scenes that feel more akin to something from a David Fincher movie instead of a Matt Reeve’s comic book movie. Info : Run time : 2 hours 55 minutes Studio : […]
Weekend Watchlist – This weekend is a great time to see another great Batman story, a painful and award worth performance in Spencer, and a hilarious and morbid crime caper in Fargo.
Isle of Dogs- Wes Anderson’s claymation story about a boy searching for his dog is fresh and crisp with plenty of attention to detail and an awesome cast. #IsleOfDogs
Most ensemble movies struggle with having too many recognizable faces and unintentionally create a Rick Dalton Pointing Meme experience. There are exceptions, like most of the later Avengers movies most notably. However, Wes Anderson is able to construct a quick sub-2-hour movie with plenty of breathing room for everyone. While nobody stands out as the shining star amongst stars, everyone brings their own unique flair and makes their story their own. A very whimsical and loving caricature of journalism, The French Dispatch tells five unique short stories that would appear inside of a mid-20th-century magazine. Interesting visuals, witty dialogue, and masterful editing await inside this humorous and well-crafted movie.
Licorice Pizza – A visually stunning movie with an awesome soundtrack and an impressive first time cast makes for an enjoyable but slightly disjointed story.
The semi faithful adaptation
of the beloved video game franchise is converted into a
decently entertaining video game movie that is
hamstrung by awkward casting. Ruben Fleischer
manages to take weak concepts and turn them into
incredibly marketable movies and this is no exception.
Don’t rush to the theater to see it, but don’t skip it on
your next movie night.
Samurai Champloo – Shin’ichirô Watanabe returns with an amazing follow up to the legendary Cowboy BeBop in Samurai Champloo. Funny, bumpin soundtrack, and an immersive story awaits in this alternate history story.
