'Sorry to Bother You' Review
2 months ago
I saw this film on Monday, and am currently sat—exactly 48 hours after the screening, still trying to decide if I like it. This is a first for me. This is the first time in years I’ve stepped out of a film, being really unsure as to whether or not I liked it. So, I’m gonna put the beef of the film up front, and talk spoiler stuff after the important stuff.

'Mary Poppins Returns' Review

Mary Poppins Returns is a weird movie. But not necessarily weird, in terms of what happens in it—if you’re watching a sequel to Mary Poppins not expecting a few weird set pieces, you’re watching for the wrong reasons.

I hadn’t heard a bad word said about this film before I saw it, so this film definitely had high expectations to fill and, for the most part, Spider-...
2018 Movies From Worst to Best
3 months ago
So, this year, instead of doing tissue-thin top and bottom lists of films I saw this year, I decided to just make one long list with every film I saw that was released in 2018. Incidentally, if you don’t see a film on this list, it’ll be because I didn’t see it… obviously. I’m honestly kinda surprised at how many films I saw this year, given that I was both dirt poor and offensively busy with graduating and then immediately jumping back into higher education. Some of these films, I actually have...
