Paddington 2
Paddington 2 (2018)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Paddington for president.

Up there with the likes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, and Terminator 2: Judgement Day in terms of the best sequels ever.

Paddington 2 is one of the most kindhearted and genuine films I've ever seen. If more people shared the same core values as Paddington, the world would be a MUCH better place. Paddington is what we as humans should aspire to be.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

In contention for the best dark comedy I've ever seen. This will surely win the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. The script is brilliant. The dialogue is outstanding. This is flat out a superbly written film. Three Billboards balances comedy and tragedy like I've never seen before. One minute you're laughing hysterically and not even a few second slater you feel like shedding some tears. The balance among tones is incredible.

Sam Rockwell is a revelation in this film. I think he's even better in this than he was in Moon. The same goes for Frances McDormand. I believe this is her best performance. Woody Harrelson is also really fantastic. Peter Dinklage has some fantastic moments. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a character driven movie and everyone fucking KILLS IT!

Expect several Oscar noms to come from this film!

Yes, this is better than In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths.

The Shape of Water
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Shape of Water is an absolute gem and Guillermo del Toro is a national treasure.

Arguably Michael Shannon's best performance, which is saying something. Neck and neck with Take Shelter. Sally Hawkins is brilliant as well. She plays a mute woman and it's amazing how much she's able to convey without saying a single word. Richard Jenkins is the best he's been in a very long time. He oozes charm. Octavia Spencer is a breath of the freshest air.

I love fantasy/fairy-tail movies and NO ONE can make a fantasy film quite like Mr. del Toro. His are something to behold. He has an insane knack for visuals. The color pallet in this movie is outstanding.

The one word I would use to describe this film is sweet. It'll make your heart melt, unless you're heartless. This is also a surprisingly funny film.

mother! (2017)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I was able to avoid all spoilers and went into this movie completely blind. Well, I am very conflicted with Darren Aronofsky's mother!. I think the film is VERY well made and the performances are really good. However, for me something was missing and I can't pinpoint what that something was. I understood the metaphors. Javier is God. Jennifer/the house is the Earth. Ed Harris is Adam and Michelle Pfeiffer is Eve. Before Eve comes into the picture we see this big cut on the back-side of Ed Harris (in the Bible Eve is made from one of Adam's ribs). They break Javier's stone thing despite being told countless times not to go into Javier's office (aka Eve eating the forbidden apple in the Garden of Eden). The Gleeson Brothers play Cain and Abel, one of them kills the other because of jealousy. Everyone invading the house and doing whatever they want is a reference to people in today's world doing whatever they want whenever they want to do it with no regard for their surroundings. Also, all these people are obsessed with Javier's character (God) and they're all bad people. This tells us that religious people aren't all good people, which is the case in real life. There are tons and tons of bad people who believe in a higher power. Through out the movie Javier continues to allow these intruders to do what they want, he never attempts to stop them. This is a reference to God allowing people to make their own choices. People have their own free will, God doesn't tell us right from wrong. We're also taught God forgives. Javier continuously brushes off what these people do and never kicks them out of his house, which shows us God's forgiveness and compassion. And that lead's us to the death of Jennifer Lawrence's baby. Bardem gets ahold of the baby and wants to show him off the all of his followers and the followers end up killing the baby. This is God sending his son Jesus to the world where he is ultimately killed and betrayed by his own followers.

Everything is here. I understood it. I just didn't find it that compelling and I honestly can't tell you why. I was expecting to be thinking about this movie for days to come and now just a few hours after seeing the movie, it's already left my mind. I liked the metaphors and I liked how they did them, but like I said they didn't stick with me. Maybe it didn't translate well on screen? Somethings are better left written. I think this would read much much better. I'd be interested to read the script and see how I feel about it then. Seems like it would be a more impactful read opposed to seeing it play out on screen. Then again this is working for a lot of people. So who knows?

It's been said that Darren wrote this entire script in 5 days and I think that shows. With a more fine tuned script I think mother! could have been an exceptional film. I give Aronofsky a ton of credit for going for it though and the studio allowing him to do so. I plan on rewatching this in the future, so we'll see what happens then!

Blade Runner 2049
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Issa masterpiece.

Blade Runner is an EPIC!

Ladies & Gents, this is why science fiction is my favorite genre of film.

Better than the original. Don't @ me.

Denis Villeneuve is by far one of the best working directors today.

Deakins can't get robbed again, can he?

Not only a sequel to Blade Runner, but also a sequel to Lars and the Real Girl <3.

Probably the best film I've ever seen from a technical, visual, and sound standpoint. A treat for the eyes and ears.

I want every shot of this movie framed on my wall.

I love my holographic wife.

Ryan Gosling is the fucking GOAT!

General audiences are going to hate this.
