- The Nightingale, 2018 - ★★★ November 12, 2019Jennifer Kent's follow up to her highly acclaimed (and rightfully so) horror movie, The Babadook, is a daring revenge tale set against the backdrop of 1825 Tasmanian Wilderness.At times, The Nightingale is very hard to watch as it has numerous rape sequences and graphic violence throughout. It's not gratuitous but it's still hard to watch.Aisl […]
- El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, 2019 - ★★★★ November 9, 2019El Camino is a surprisingly excellent coda to the Breaking Bad story and strong conclusion to Jesse Pinkman's character arc.

Especially so soon after seeing it.I left the theater about an hour ago and I'm just so gobsmacked by Parasite. The storytelling alone is absolutely masterful. The cinematography and set design is stunning! This movie leads to some unexpected places that I wasn't prepared for. Incredibl […]
- The Nightingale, 2018 - ★★★ November 12, 2019
