Enjoy the rantings as Mr. Hipster proves he slept through his film criticism courses in college.

Beirut

No matter what show or movie he’s in Jon Hamm will always be Don Draper. Even when he plays a dufus or another dufus or tries to sell me a Mercedes or tax services...

What else are airplanes for other than to watch stupid fucking movies? I mean, would I actually pay to stream this movie at home, or, god forbid, buy an actual...
mother!

mother!

I’ve heard the word “divisive” more in the past year than I’ve ever heard it in my life. It’s usually applied to our current political atmosphere, but I think it...
Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049

The original Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies ever. I mean, how awesome is sci-fi noir? And Philip K. Dick, whose name comes up on this site way more than...
Blockers

Blockers

This is a smart movie. Okay, it's kind of a dumb fucking movie, but the concept of mashing up a teen sex comedy and one of those adult caper comedies is pure ma...
The Babadook

The Babadook

I'm generally not a fan of horror movies. I think that comes from my childhood when horror movies were basically slasher films where mindless zombie-like killer...
Baby Driver

Baby Driver

I remember first seeing the trailer for this movie and thinking to myself, "Goddamn if they didn't make a movie straight out of my brain." It had everything I l...
Game Night

Game Night

It seems like there used to be movies like Game Night made on the regular. The R-rated (or hard PG-13), adult pseudo action-comedy that mixes witty repartee wit...

Wilson

Woody Harrelson has had a weird career. Or at least that's kind of what it looks like from afar. I mean, he's Matthew McConaughey's stoner buddy and was best kn...
Downsizing

Downsizing

There was a time when I thought Alexander Payne was a genius. It seems that was mostly based on my initial reaction to Election, which was revelatory when I fir...
Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

Apparently Atomic Blonde is another movie based on a graphic novel. But in more of a Sin City way than a Marvel, masked and spandexed way. Granted, I know next ...
Shirkers

Shirkers

I got the opportunity to see this film at the Montclair Film Festival, which was attended by the filmmaker herself, Sandi Tan. It's always fun to get a little p...
My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel

I admittedly ended up watching this movie because of Rachel Weisz. I have a soft spot for her (and who amongst us men doesn't?) and thought, in seeing the poste...
Passengers

Passengers

This seemed like a spectacular way to take two of the most popular actors working and somehow swing and miss so badly. Seriously, though, how do you write what ...
Super Dark Times

Super Dark Times

I seem to have fallen into this weird place with my viewing habits of late. Super Dark Times continues my odd trend of unintentionally picking television shows ...
Logan Lucky

Logan Lucky

I liked it better when it was called Kingpin. Ok, it's not really a similar film other than the fact someone's prosthetic hand is played for laughs throughout t...
Buster's Mal Heart

Buster’s Mal Heart

Buster's Mal Heart really goes for it. In that I mean it takes any number of indie film tropes from years past, mixes in biblical references, conspiracy, myster...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

What can I say about The Last Jedi that hasn't already been said? Well, nothing, really. Other than to say ho-hum. Maybe it's age. Or maybe it's cynicism. Or ma...
