I watch bad movies so you can save your money

Uncut Gems [2019] ★★★½

To say that “Uncut Gems” is Adam Sandler’s best movie in years would truly be the understatement of the year. But here’s the thing: when he’s not being a goofball in lazy, recycled comedies, Sandler can act. For further proof, check him out in Paul Thomas Anderson’s underrated […]

Little Women [2019] ★★★★

Jojo Rabbit [2019] ★★★
