|42 T7||Harvey (1950) - Dec 10, 2017
"Charming in the way only movies from this era can be. It may be naive, it may be saccharine, but dammit it works."
|15 T1||The Circle (2017) - Dec 10, 2017
"Really, really uneven. The internal lives of all the characters are a complete mystery throughout the film. I have no idea what their desires or intentions are. There's no villain, there's no goal, there's no... anything. It honestly felt like nothing happened. All that, and it felt 45 minutes longer than it actually was."
|16 T1||Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - Dec 09, 2017
"This was the most frustrating movie I've ever seen. Way too self-referential, a half-hour too long, a poorly executed plot. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is how much good stuff is buried amongst the dreck. Incredible art direction, some excellent jokes, a great central conflict. But still: Vol 2. took all the fun and excitement of Guardians' intergalactic-Indiana-Jones shtick and they wasted it."
|35 T4||The Night Before (2015) - Dec 03, 2017
"I liked this more than I thought I would. A lot of movies about masculinity and friendship really miss the point. This one, while flawed, offers a genuine understanding of how these goofy, insane relationships evolve as we get older."
|37 T4||The Craft (1996) - Dec 03, 2017
"This was way better than I expected! Yeah, it's got a bad case of 90s music but the plot and characters are classic high school shit. The kind of realistic nostalgia that I can still watch even as I get farther and farther away from graduation."
|42 T7||Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) - Nov 30, 2017
"Dragged in the middle but, overall, this is a lovely film. Makes me nostalgic for summer camp, canoe trips, and being in the silent woods."
|32 T3||The Other Guys (2010) - Nov 29, 2017
"Funnier than I was expecting but doesn't really hang together as a film. It kind of feels like a bunch of (often funny) sketches about law enforcement rather than anything with a plot or consistent characters. It was fine for an afternoon watch."
|44 T8||Thor: Ragnarok (2017) - Nov 25, 2017
"This was excellent. I went into it expecting a romp and a romp is what I got. Easily the funniest Marvel movie so far and a great example of how blockbusters can still feel fresh if you get a strong, creative force behind the lens."
|15 T1||A Cure for Wellness (2017) - Nov 11, 2017
"The movie equivalent of swinging and missing so hard at a pitch that you break your shoulder."
|42 T7||The Lure (2015) - Nov 11, 2017
"Super weird but very watchable. It's neat to see a horror retelling of The Little Mermaid, especially since I always found that story kind of terrifying anyway."
