Rating History

Get Out
Get Out (2017)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film works incredibly well as a comedy, horror, or psychological thriller. Almost too well as I occasionally found myself wishing it would pick a lane and drive it home. In the end, however, I'm glad it didn't. This movie had too many points to make to keep things simple. Kaluuya and Williams put on fine performances, but Peele proves to be the mastermind, getting every little directorial detail right in what is sure to be one of the best films on 2017.

Lion
Lion (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An incredible true story told very well by Garth Davis and performed wonderfully by Dev Patel and the true star: Sunny Pawar. I work with children, and how you get a 6 year old to act as amazingly as he did is beyond me. It is an interesting and important story than informs and entertains.

Moonlight
Moonlight (2016)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film includes great direction, scoring and cinematography, and stand out performances by Naomi Harris and Ashton Sanders. Despite all of that, and it's relevant and "important" subject matter, it is still the movie equivalent of Rohypnol and left no impression on me at all. The bullying scenes were a little too "after-school special" and fake, and its snail-like pace really tests the audience. This film will get faux love, genuine love, faux criticism and genuine criticism, so it may be hard to determine if you should go see it. I say, unless you have a particular interest, save your time and money.

Manchester by the Sea

This is an incredibly sad tale about sad people in a sad town. It's the typical bone-dry film that critics drool over, but it just didn't leave an impression on me. Casey Affleck's performance is really great, the screenplay is occasionally funny but mostly somber, and the directing is fine. This film is an interesting character study, but one that can lull you to sleep pretty easily.
