Sometimes I'll watch a movie with my best friend Ash, and when I don't have a whole lot to say I'll include her score, 'cause why not!

70 47% Into the Woods (2014) - Dec 30, 2018
"“Into the Woods” is a richly dynamic, inherently fascinating tale, a morally warped subversion of the fairy tales we’ve grown up hearing for generations. It’s also a musical, mind, an adaptation of Sondheim’s iconic stage version, and it is here where things start to fall flat. Half the songs are truly excellent, but many of them are akin to a run-on sentence, long-winded and dreary. Still, its ensemble cast is perfect, its world is gorgeous, and the tunes that land, land."
60 34% Lady in the Water (2006) - Dec 29, 2018
"“Lady in the Water” is a remarkably well-intentioned film. From its stellarly conceived, minimalist prologue, there’s an immediate feeling of childhood wonder. It has a fantastic lead in Giamatti’s stuttering superintendent, and a delightful supporting cast. However, Shyamalan’s bedtime story falters by revelling in a sort of self-imposed importance, believing itself to be far more philosophical and complex than it truly is. A genuine film, but a confused one."
0% Holmes & Watson (2018) - Dec 28, 2018
"This is not a score I give lightly. “Holmes & Watson” really is THAT bad. Very few films have made me actively feel the urge to get out of my seat and leave, but I came close a few times. I’ve seen comedies that are unfunny, films that are completely inept, but every piece of this pitiful excuse of a movie falls to pieces under seemingly no pressure at all. A light prod is all it takes for this bloated, agonizingly unfunny house of cards to collapse in on itself. Elementary? Not even close"
