MOVIE REVIEWS: Yesterday, Peanut Butter Falcon, Blinded By Light, Arctic, Hostiles, Once Upon a Time…

Courtesy Universal

Yesterday is my favorite movie of the year so far. So long as you can suspend your disbelief for an hour and a half, it’s a wonderful, heart-felt, and fist-pumping story about music, chasing your dreams, honesty, distraction, and following your heart. 4.5/5 stars (in theaters)

My other favorites of the year are as follows (Updated):

  • Peanut Butter Falcon: An excellent journey/friendship movie all the way through. 4.5/5 stars.
  • Blinded By The Light: A wonderful story and message with some uneven directing and acting, if not a tad melodramatic. 4/5 stars.
  • Arctic: An excellent survival film. 4/5 stars (streaming on Prime)
  • Hostiles: A complex drama of Indian-American relations. 4/5 stars (streaming on Netflix)
  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Not Tarantino’s best but still enthralling. 4/5 stars (in theaters)
