This week, we return back to good old Netflix to find our movie to watch, as well as bring back another edition of “Poops & Praises”, a style of review where I just list what I liked (praises) and what I didn’t like (poops). Warning, there are mild spoilers ahead.


The Favourite

              · · · · · · ·

Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest film, “The Favourite” is a critically acclaimed and highly divisive Best Picture nominee, and after watching, I can certainly see why. This is an English tea time snack with snappy bite and wickedly dark aftertaste.


Captain Marvel

              · · · · · · · · ·

Here comes another “Poops & Praises”, a style of review where I just list what I liked (praises) and what I didn’t like (poops). Warning, there are mild spoilers ahead.


Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

              · · · · · · · ·

“The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second installment of five planned movies (yes, you read it correctly) in the “Fantastic Beasts” Harry Potter spin-off/prequel series. While the first film showed some promise, the second film isn’t able to reproduce those results.


Destination Wedding

              · · · · · · ·

This week’s review brings the second installment in “Poops & Praises”, a style of review where I just list what I liked (praises) and what I didn’t like (poops).


Dear Ex

              · · · · · · · ·

This unassuming Taiwanese indie film acquired by Netflix is a rare achievement in both film-making and story-telling, and it’s the best movie I’ve seen so far this year.


Green Book

              · · · · · · ·

“Green Book” advertises itself as a racially-themed, crowd-pleasing, feel-good film, and it succeeds on all fronts, as long as you don’t think too hard about it.


To All the Boys I've Loved Before

              · · · · · · ·

This week’s review follows a different format called “Poops and Praises” where I just list what I liked (praises) and what I didn’t like (poops). However, before I get into that:


Velvet Buzzsaw

              · · · · · · · ·

I normally steer far away from horror films, but when I heard that the director of “Nightcrawler” had teamed up with Jake Gyllenhaal again to release a satire horror film on Netflix, my curiosity got the best of me. Despite its categorization of horror, I found the film to be surprisingly funny and was laughing more often than I was scared, whether that was the film’s intention or not.


The Commuter

              · · · · · · ·

The experience of watching “The Commuter” ends up being like most commutes: we know where we’re headed, and the train gets us there somewhat reliably, but the ride isn’t all that memorable.
