The Black Phone - Review (2022)

The Good
Scott Derrickson's Direction is great giving us his best film yet and showing hes definitely a Horor director to watch for. 

The Writing from Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill is great with alot of faithfulness to the short story. 

Ethan Hawke is fucking amazing as The Grabber who is one of the best masked horror characters in a long ass time, and his mask changes on his mood. 

Mason Thames is awesome 

Every kid actor in the film is great. 

The Atmosphere is definitely haunting especially in the Kidnapping flashbacks that is done very identical to the Kill Videos in Sinister. 

Mark Korven's score with even scenes that don't use music.

The last act is awesome. 

The Bad
Nothing

Final Thoughts: The Black Phone was definitely worth waiting for even though it should of never been delayed, but other than that is definitely a great horror film of the year. 

Overall Grade: A+

Elvis - Review (2022)

The Good
Austin Butler is great at Elvis Presley and surprisingly doesn't lip sync

Tom Hanks as Col. Tom Parker is also great even though his accent and later how he looks is cringe

The story of Elvis rise and fall is definitely worth to tell and they show almost all the bad shit hes done. 

The Elvis Songs

The Mixed
The Supporting Cast are Hit or Miss

The Bad
Baz Luhrmann's terrible Direction i always hated his Visual style it works for some movies, but not this they should of had the director of Walk the Line instead.

The screenplay of 4 writers definitely shows with alot of bad dialogue and cringe. 

Random terrible covers of other people singing elvis songs and terrible random rap songs. 

Its too fucking long

Some bd camera work and camera cuts and camera zooms basically the film editing is ass. 

Final Thoughts: Elvis has 2 great performances, but just like Bohemian Rhapsody its pretry forgettable from poor direction and writing and awful film editing. 

Overall Grade: C
