“Fade to Black”

8.4

Don’t read into this one too much… Guy who watches a lot of movies becoming a serial killer. Yikes.

Strong “Taxi Driver” and “King of Comedy” vibes from this one. Excellent performance by Dennis Christopher. Such an interesting premise, so well executed. Interesting to watch and catch all of the homages and callbacks to Hollywood classics. Highly recommend if you’re looking for an outside the box spooky film for the Halloween season.

“Bill & Ted Face The Music”

7.2

If you liked the originals, you’ll enjoy this one. Same old Bill and Ted shenanigans. An… interesting soundtrack. Cameos galore, including the valiant return of Death! The narrative was a bit messy at times, but it was great to see the dynamic duo back together for an hour and a half of fun. Power up your phone booth, and get ready to dial the fun up to 11!

“TENET”

8.9

Just when you thought your brain had recovered from “Inception”… here comes another Christopher Nolan masterpiece to sufficiently bend your mind back into a pretzel. A cinematic masterpiece, that is best enjoyed on the biggest IMAX screen you can find.

John David Washington cements himself as a quintessential leading man, action hero, and all around generational talent. Robert Pattinson’s performance will leave you fired up for his take on the dark knight. Their camaraderie is infectious. Their charm infectious.

I myself spent a majority of the second viewing with my jaw on the floor. There is so much detail in every frame of this film, it was truly breathtaking. The stunts are awe-inspiring, and I can’t wait for the special features explaining how they achieved some of them.

Forwards and backwards, this film is AMAZING. But make sure you have time to focus, time to emotionally prepare and recover, and an empty bladder. The 2.5 hour runtime didn’t feel it’s true length, but was well worth every second. WOW.
