The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected) is not a movie I was jumping in my car to see. I mean, just look at the title. You don’t have to know anything about it to realize how much of an indie movie it must be, and how many hipsters must have died to make the production. …

Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh is a sunuvabitch. And I mean that in a loving way. After finishing strong with Side Effects and Behind The Candelabra, he said he was retiring from directing, and the world was sad. Sure, he gave us some of The Knick, but it wasn’t the same. And then I saw a trailer for …

Paterson

Paterson is a film that came out in 2016, near the end, a limited drama, that I totally missed. A few of my friends put it on their best of the year list. And I totally missed it. I feel so ashamed. Ashamed specifically because it played in my city in advance with the director …

Silence

What’s that? Do you hear that? Shhh, listen! That’s right, that is the sound of Silence, blistering in the wind. It is also the sound of Martin Scorsese, old and still not giving a fuck. He is making movies that he wants to make and he is making him epic. When his last film came …

Midnight Special

Quick, it’s midnight, what do you do? I tell you what I do. I sleep. But for some people midnight is something special. And yes this poor intro was just a way to say the title Midnight Special, but it isn’t going to well. Before the film, I knew nothing about it outside of the …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Here is what I can tell you: This review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be super unbiased. Why? Because I am not a hardcore fan boy of the series like most critics I know. I didn’t watch the original trilogy over and over as a kid, and didn’t even see them as an …

This Is Where I Leave You

This Is Where I Leave You is one of those movies that I really didn’t care about seeing right away. I knew I could wait for it, despite liking quite a few members of the cast. What was my beef? I call it Jason Bateman fatigue. A lot of people in this movie, but his …

What If

What if I told you that sometimes movies are called different things in different countries. That wouldn’t surprise you in the slightest. You knew that. After all, it is Gojira in Japan, and Godzilla in America. “Hey that doesn’t count, that is just another different language!” Alright fucker. How about Frozen? We got the clever/unique …

Inside Llewyn Davis

My main initial complaint with Inside Llewyn Davis is the name. I have seen the title online for months, but no one ever pronounced it for me by an official source. I had to wait til I saw the dang thing to know just how to pronounce Llewyn. And it is like Lue-Win. Now we …

Frances Ha

I almost saw Frances Ha two months ago. For real. I was going to drive an hour to see it and do some other things in the capital city. It was the only movie at the indie theater that I hadn’t already seen, or knew I was going to see shortly after. It was all …
