50 T5 Black Panther (2018) - Feb 18, 2018
"Woah guys, chill out. This isn't great, it's OK. It has some cool ideas, elements and sequences for sure but way too much of it is heavy handed, poorly executed and not very well made - honestly the most fake looking Marvel movie yet. The villain gets more and more one dimensional as the film goes on, and the whole ordeal is hard to be completely on board with. That said, it is cool and fairly fun I guess. "
75 T7 The Florida Project (2017) - Feb 12, 2018
"A really beautiful film, but I feel like I took away the wrong things from it. Such as: man, kids are annyoing. Dafoe is all the heart, surrounded by a bunch of unfortunate characters of which too few are portrayed sympathetically. The ending is the biggest dud all year."
75 T7 I, Tonya (2017) - Feb 06, 2018
"Really good despite some poor choices. I disliked the framing device a lot, and the contrived (really - why on earth do this) talking to the camera mid-scene in particular. Additionally I find this kind of subjective scoring-based sport to be thoroughly uninteresting. All that said, the performances are fantastic all around, Robbie and Janney in particular. Once the "incident" comes into the narrative it becomes a really interesting, entertaining film. Cannavale should do more humor. "
75 T7 Call Me by Your Name (2017) - Feb 05, 2018
"A beautiful portrayal, but occasionally almost too real to the point where it becomes umcomfortable. I think it changed gears a bit too fast, jumping full on into a very intense relationship with an amount of intimacy I would have liked some more acclimatization to. It's a wonderful film anyway. Stuhlbargs ending monologue should win an Oscar on its own, I don't care which one. "
75 T7 Coco (2017) - Feb 04, 2018
"Not Pixar's best, though better than their last three. "
100 T10 Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Jan 31, 2018
"There it is! McDonagh has always been one to watch, and it finally comes together all the way. Absolutely fantastic script, wonderfully executed. An exciting, fresh piece of cinema - and what a cast. "
75 T7 All the Money in the World (2017) - Jan 28, 2018
"The most memorable thing about this is Plummer's performance, Getty senior pops off the screen in every scene. At least considering Plummer as a replacement was thrown together in about a month. Apart from that, fair. "
25 T2 Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) - Jan 27, 2018
"I hope you're ready to play the "wait, how did that character get there?" game, because despite its almost 2,5 hours The Death Cure does very little to actually explain what's going on. The opening heist sequence is actually promising, but once it starts getting into the overarching story it falls apart once again. I really don't know what the point is of this franchise, nor of what any of the characters in it are doing."
75 T7 Xanadu (1980) - Jan 26, 2018
"The kind of movie I regret not having seen sooner. Absolute garbage, but so charming. Gene Kelly in particular. There's a special place in my heart for films with this many incomprehensible creative choices. Really - what were they thinking. "
25 T2 Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) - Jan 22, 2018
"Par for the course. Continues the trends set in Pitch Perfect 2 of characters with decreasing likability (Steinfeld is the only one with any charm left) and song choices with decreasing inspiration. The first film was great, but we're a long way downhill at this point. They should quit before we hit bottom. "
