Mr. Mercedes

Mr. Mercedes: Season 1

It seems that there's Stephen King content everywhere you turn. Even on this weirdo Audience network, which is some sort of AT&T and Direct TV mashup Frankenstein of a...
Okja

Okja

Apparently this site has just become a Bong Joon Ho tribute site of late. But, my god, this is a strange movie. It's all over the place in terms of tone and approach. At...
Good Time

Good Time

I do love a crime drama. And there is no better backdrop for these types of stories than NYC. And Good Time takes full advantage of the chaos and dinginess of the city...
Hot Summer Nights

Hot Summer Nights

I mean how do I not watch a coming-of-age crime drama set in 1991? And starring this Timothy (sorry, it's spelled Timothée?!) Chalamet kid I've been hearing so much...
The Killing of a Sacred Deer

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Oh my lord. Yorgos, what the hell are you doing to me? I watched The Lobster. And boy if that wasn’t one fucked up film. Stylized within an inch of its life, but...
The Florida Project

The Florida Project

I hate Florida. No, seriously, it’s a canker in the mouth of the United States and its general culture needs to be destroyed. Although, to be fair, it has provided...
First Reformed

First Reformed

Holy Jesus! No, seriously, holy Jesus. I had no idea this movie was a thing until some end-of-year list wrap-ups that mentioned a shockingly good performance from...
The Book of Henry

The Book of Henry

Sometimes I like to watch poorly reviewed movies jut to see what all the hubbub is about. Usually I can find redeeming qualities even in the rottenest of tomatoes...
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...
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 like about...

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 known for...
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 first saw...
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 to nothing...
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 poster, that...
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 and movies starring...
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, mystery, sci-fi...
