Don't Look Up (2021)

Don't Look Up - Review

"We really did have everything, didn't we? I mean, when you think about it."

Leonardo DiCaprio, easily one of the best parts of this crowded cast. Both funny and dramatic. The freak out scene on live TV was some of the best acting from him. I watched that scene so many times.

The movie itself I found a bit iffy. It's long, the editing is strange, and it's one of those movies that tries to fit in every single famous actor in one movie. But in a weird way, in some over the top, not subtle …

Licorice Pizza

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 01/13/22

A movie so full of life that it's almost surreal, the picaresque "Licorice Pizza" has to be Paul Thomas Anderson's most joyous film yet.

The King's Man

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 01/12/22

It shouldn't surprise you that "The King's Man" isn't the new best in the franchise, but you might very well be startled by this prequel's more dramatic and restrained tone with less gratuitous violence and more thoughtful commentary on violence.

The Lost Daughter

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 01/09/22

It gets rather redundant and the ending feels peculiarly underwhelming, but Olivia Coleman and Jessie Buckley give two stellar performances that make this psychological drama about one mother's self-reflection compelling.

Don't Look Up (2021)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 01/06/22

Another overlong and overwrought satire from Adam McKay's collection of diminishing returns, "Don't Look Up" mistakes snark for wit and self-importance for urgency.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Bringing It All Together for One Epic Show

We are now 27 films into the MCU - and that doesn't include the streaming titles or the network TV shows - and, despite all that, the powers that be continue to impress and provide something different and, yes, better.

The Spider-Man films have always been a lot of fun - but still pack some emotional punch. Tom Holland has been an excellent choice to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man and has been helped along by a great supporting cast from the likes of Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei and …

The Matrix Resurrections

The Meta-trix

Well, Matrix Resurrections wasn't really my cup of tea. It felt like the cinematic equivalent of the word 'whatever', simultaneously a frustrating and functionally perfect way to end an argument. It is at its most intriguing in the first act, but when it gets to the stuff frankly a lot of people are excited for it pointedly frustrates. The choreography, blocking, and cinematography of the fight sequences take all that fluid style and aesthetic from the original trilogy and replace edit it with …

Don't Look Up (2021)

Amoeba Johnny - wrote on 12/26/21

The allegory is strong with this one. As a healthcare worker who's constantly battling misinformation about the virus (almost as much as fighting the virus itself), I sympathize with the characters in this movie. And I 100% believe that if it was a comet, rather than a virus, it would have been handled this way. If there was an extinction-level event hitting the Earth, I would spend the last moments exactly as the main character did. It also teaches a good lesson in tuning off the panic, and …

The Matrix Resurrections

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 12/24/21

This long awaited return to "The Matrix" is more of a regurgitation than a resurrection, with the broad philosophical jargon of the previous sequels mixed into a glaringly obvious amount of unnecessary meta-ness.

Nightmare Alley (2021)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 12/21/21

Grimy yet gorgeous, "Nightmare Alley" has some of the best production design of the year. Sadly, it's also one of the emptiest, most underwhelming, and most disconnected movies of 2021, and of visionary Guillermo del Toro's whole career.
