3/5 39% Rebecca (2020) While I enjoyed untangling every mysterious thread of this film, the story is definitely bordering on convoluted...after so many underwhelming plot twists, I start to lose trust in a film. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

3/5 65% The Devil All the Time (2020) Instills a lot of curiosity about what the point of the film might be, but other than making an unsettling spectacle of corruptible faith, it's a bit bleak. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

4/5 60% Chemical Hearts (2020) I still feel a strong connection to the teenage girl who felt too much, who sometimes wasn't very attached to the idea of being alive, who experienced the hardships of first love, and this movie was made for that girl. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

3/5 82% Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) It was fun to see Bill & Ted go on another excellent adventure, but without the heart and charm of the original duology, it doesn't have much to say. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

5/5 89% The Usual Suspects (1995) In all of my heist movies research, and all of the things that I've watched recently, I think The Usual Suspects might be the best heist movie of all time. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

87% Westworld (1973) It just felt like a cheesy 70s Western with like a sci-fi twist, but it was enjoyable, it was fun to see where the show originated. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

3/5 63% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) There's not a ton of character development or a ton of depth to the characters aside from Sonic, who is weirdly relatable, but it's also about as deep as a kid's movie should be. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

3/5 78% Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) It was a steady combination of dark and fun, and while the film is kind of just a fun joyride, I do think the performances were done perfectly and the cast was pretty spot-on. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

2/5 51% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) It was just a lot of unexplained tension. You can't just make a suspenseful dramatic scene without making me care. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

95% The Irishman (2019) Their dialogue is so authentic, so real, and the way that they just bounce off of each other in this hypnotizing but also unsynchronized sort of way, it's just fascinating. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

3/5 57% Aladdin (2019) I loved the diversity of the cast, the costumes were so well done, and the music was amazing...but the movie didn't leave me feeling anything other than apathetic by the end.

3.25/5 43% Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) A slow, boring burn that leads up to some truly kickass, huge monster fights...there are a few fun Easter eggs in there...the writing was bad, but visually, the fight scenes were great. - Aggressive Comix EDIT

3/5 79% Captain Marvel (2019) It was lacking, a bit flat, and I'm honestly concerned about how she will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe...it's so concerned with being a feminist film that it forgets how to be a superhero movie. - Aggressive Comix EDIT
