This was a terrific performance by Gary Oldman. This focus on the character of Winston Churchill, his abrasiveness and his determination come across fantastically in Oldman's performance. He is first introduced as an insufferable man and somehow with quirks and a certain charisma, I was won over. I adored the character, I was rooting for … Continue reading Darkest Hour (2017)
Here it is. It's dumb, it's loud, and it'll make you go, "hey I remember that!" It's exactly like you think. It has no real depth. The message isn't really important. It basically is don't play video games but it's undercut by the movie saying every two seconds "hey do you remember this game? Here's … Continue reading Ready Player One (2018)

I felt throughout that this movie perfectly captures what it was like for me to come out. Holding on to the assumption so that nothing changed. Then when it came to finally … Continue reading Love, Stobie
Here is a lovely little movie. I didn't have much of an expectation going into this movie. But the quirky style of the movie just captured my heart. The blend between the stop-motion puppetry and animation was seemless and masterful. It was a fantastic style choice. It added a sense of reality to the action … Continue reading Isle of Dogs (2018)
