100 T10 Princess Mononoke (1997) - Jun 25, 2017
"Outstanding. Short of Spirited Away this is my favorite Ghibli film. "
75 T7 Rough Night (2017) - Jun 18, 2017
"As in Ghostbusters Kate McKinnon singlehandedly keeps comedy alive. Clearly women can be funny and surely she's not the only one. If they would just cast funnier people. Seems a no-brainer: you need 4 funny ones and one straight one, not the other way around. Anyway McKinnon is a true spark, and I'm completely on board with putting Bo Burnham in things. "
25 T2 The Mummy (2017) - Jun 14, 2017
"This is actually screaming for Brendan Fraser to be in it. Everything else aside, this is so much more Jekyll and Hyde: The Movie than The Mummy that I can't help but wonder if that's what the script actually was at some point. 40% zombies, 40% superhero origin story, 20% mummy: 100% all over the place. Not very good. "
75 T7 Raw (2017) - Jun 14, 2017
"Forgot to rate this and now I kinda can't remember it. "
100 T10 DRIB (2017) - May 29, 2017
"This is actually one of the most interesting/enjoyable documentaries/docudramas I've ever seen. Not because of the subject, or that it's exceptionally well made (I mean, it's good, don't get me wrong) it just absolutely perfectly scratches this hang-on-did-this-really-happen-or-not itch I didn't even know I had. And how well cast is Brett Gelman, seriously."
25 T2 Alien: Covenant (2017) - May 26, 2017
"This was fine, good even (albeit dumb), until they ham-handedly set up the twist (pretty much revealing the actual twist in the setup). Not even the most idle, brain dead audience member is surprised, but the film plays it as a big reveal (groan). Covenant serves only as another setup to make it one more time, and another; Guess what there's an alien on the ship - AGAIN. Just stop. It's baffling that Scott thinks the origin is the interesting part of the franchise. It's really, plainly, not."
75 T7 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) - May 26, 2017
"I went from "this isn't as bad as I expected" through "this is OK" to "actually I like this" within the span of two hours. If we forget the third and fourth film ever happened and pretend this is the end of a trilogy you've got a pretty good thing going here. It does remind a bit of the Star Wars reboot somehow which probably shouldn't be too surprising."
50 T5 Going in Style (2017) - May 07, 2017
"Passes the time unimpressively. Ann-Margret is all charm for days on end. "
75 T7 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - May 07, 2017
"Better than the first, with a more concise story and consistent tone. Some sequences, the opening in particular, are fantastic - this is better the more 80s it is. Unfortunately the characters really aren't very interesting, with the exception of the most minor ones, which leaves large swaths of plot feeling meaningless. Cut a half hour and it could be an absolute classic."
50 T5 Ghost in the Shell (2017) - May 02, 2017
"Good design, that's it. "
