I don’t know if this movie is some kind of weird torture or a masterpiece. It’s been a week and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It’s pretty much how I feel about every Aronofsky movie.
- Star Wars: The Last Jedi
For me this movie had some of the highest highs and lowest lows of the entire film series. I still really loved this movie and can’t wait to see it over and over again.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Everything was bigger and better, exactly how a sequel should be. The movie was very funny and I was surprised how sad I felt by the end.
- Spider-Man: Homecoming
Spider-Man is fun again! I loved all the tie-ins to the previous MCU movies and I felt Keaton’s Vulture was the most relatable villain yet in one of these movies.
- T2 Trainspotting
I forgot how much I loved all of these characters and I loved all the echoes back to the original film. The message of moving on and reconciling your past really hit me hard.
- I Don’t Fell at Home in This World Anymore
Tremendous debut feature from Macon Blair. Equal parts hilarious and horrifying. I’m really looking forward to what Macon makes next.
- The Big Sick
The exact movie we all need right now. Overflowing with charm and heart. I’d be surprised if this movie doesn’t rack up a few Oscar nominations next year.
A very touching and fitting end to Jackman’s run as Wolverine. I can’t imagine anyone else playing this character. I liked it even more on the second viewing. And that last shot…gets me right in the feels.
- Brawl in Cell Block 99
A scary and powerful performance from Vince Vaughn. Zahler might only be 2 movies into his career but he’s quickly becoming one of my favorite directors.
- Free Fire
I’ve been pretty lukewarm on Ben Wheatley’s movies over the last few years but I’ve stuck with him because I know the guy is talented. I’m happy I did because Free Fire is a total success. I had a blast watching these wanna-be criminals turn on each other over a gun deal gone bad.
