"Let me start with this: this is absolutely not a great movie. It's a neat premise (if a little "this thing meets this thing" pitch-y) but the worldbuilding isn't that hot, there's nothing unique or impressive about the way it's shot, and narratively it's not very satisfying. But as a gimmicky buddy cop action movie, it's not nearly as bad as the critical reaction would suggest. Smith and Edgerton are having fun with their roles and it passes the time without being too aggressively dumb."
|71 T3||All the Money in the World (2017) - Jan 15, 2018
"A standard kidnapping/hostage thriller with one interesting idea. Plummer's Getty (with no distracting prosthetics, thank fuck) is the movie's best conceit, a jovial old man with a heart of ice who provides this film with its most complex questions. Aside from that this is a pretty tight historical thriller that doesn't take many risks. Williams is quite good but Wahlberg is just doing his usual thing."

|70 T3||Professor Marston & the Wonder Women (2017) - Jan 14, 2018
"This isn't super interesting as an origin story of Wonder Woman, but it is fairly interesting as a snapshot of sexual politics at a particular place and time. It has a refreshing embrace of kink and untraditional relationships without feeling over-the-top or winking at the audience. It's a genuine love story which works fairly well. Performances are good if a bit unremarkable, with Rebecca Hall bringing a lot of fun energy to her role."
