72% The IT Crowd (2006) - Nov 17, 2018
13% Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) - Nov 17, 2018
"[Stream it] This is a strangely "meh" film. It exists in the HP universe, but the story is too slow and unexciting to be a HP movie. It has the title of Fantastic Beasts, but the Beasts are at a bare minimum. It also has the Crimes of Grindelwald, but I couldn't name a single crime really. It uses the same magic from HP, but it doesn't follow the same rules. It's very pretty, Depp isn't terrible, and there's a handfull of interesting bits, but it comes off as failed fanservice overall."
32% The Hate U Give (2018) - Nov 11, 2018
72% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) - Nov 11, 2018
"[Theater is worth it] This feels like someone saw Four Rooms and decided they could do it better. And did. Every moment of this movie is packed with fun, the pacing between characters’ stories is great, and overall this movie is just plain fun. "
49% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) - Nov 11, 2018
"[Stream it] As someone who enjoys Queen and has never really looked into the history of the group, this was fun! I enjoy Malek and seeing how well he nailed Freddy’s mannerisms was a pleasant surprise! I’m also happy that they didn’t seem to create drama-for-drama-purposes. A fun movie all around. "
13% The Grinch (2018) - Nov 11, 2018
"[Use this movie to entertain kids] The original Grinch animation has a bunch of elements that make it so memorable: whymsical rhymes, flamboyant characters, catchy songs, etc. If you take all that out, keep the core story, add a bunch of filler characters, pad it out to feature-film length, and you come out with this. The animation is fantastic, the story isn’t terrible, but there’s not a whole lot there. It’s good if you’re style of parenting is to sit your kid in front of the screen fo"
21% Widows (2018) - Nov 11, 2018
"[Stream it] A heist movie whose story is more about the characters’ turmoil than the heist itself. Imagine a heist movie where all the main characters at best tolerate each other and every character is corrupt in some way. In the end I didn’t know who I should really be happy for. That should be celebrated and we should get more heist movies that are dark like this. I’m hoping these future ones don’t require so much suspense of disbelief. "
72% Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018) - Nov 02, 2018
"[Streaming this is fine] This feels like a high-budget indy film--in a good way. Up until the third act I had no idea what kind of movie this was trying to be, but I didn't really care because it was just fun being in the moment. This isn't high art, it's not Hollywood amazing, and it's probably not going to make it to America. It is, however, a comedy-horror that doesn't take itself seriously and is fun the whole way through. "
21% A Star Is Born (2018) - Oct 28, 2018
"[Stream this] The acting is great, the conversations sound the most natural I've heard in any movie, the singing was good, but overall it felt meh. Some parts felt really forced on the characters to move things forward, the pacing sometimes felt off, and overall it was okay. "
49% A Simple Favor (2018) - Sep 20, 2018
"[Stream it] A fun mystery with multiple twists and genuinely funny moments. Not the greatest storytelling, but easily overlooked."
