80 86% Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) - Rated 01 Jan 2021
"Even Imdb reviewers who liked it said it wasn't Lol funny, but I thought it was Lol funny. Some said you'd have to watch Eurovision to get/like it, but I don't think so. Some said not to expect a great plot or depth, but this movie actually had a story and some twists. I really liked that Dan Stevens as the Russian competitor was not an antagonist or romantic rival, but just a friend to Rachel McAdams. Also he's amazing, I didn't even recognize him. RM was also super likeable and impressive.****"

75 69% Stranger Than Fiction (2006) - Rated 01 Jan 2021
"Really liked the meta-ness of this one even though it didn't seem to quite make sense even on its own fantastic terms."
70 50% Wish I Was Here (2014) - Rated 01 Jan 2021
65 32% Love Is Strange (2014) - Rated 01 Jan 2021
"What happens to these characters is pretty terrible but the story is presented as a matter-of-fact slice of life. Several good performances and many sweet moments, also some low-stakes domestic conflict. One odd subplot involves the grandson, who may have fallen under the bad influence of a slightly older friend, gets in trouble for apparently stealing antique French books and hiding them under his bed (why?). The ending was very abrupt and unsatisfying."
65 32% Indecent Proposal (1993) - Rated 31 Dec 2020
"Excessive backstory and not enough reason to care about the characters. Before and after the proposal, everything plays out pretty predictably. The worst part is that Robert Redford gets a pass on stalking Demi Moore because he's so rich and supposedly handsome and good in bed? I didn't really believe he liked her and rather assumed he chose his victims solely based on their desperation for money, but that was left a bit murky. In any case I was not impressed."
60 19% The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020) - Rated 31 Dec 2020
"Movie Watching Partner (MVP) suggested this one. It was a pretty cheesy follow-up to the first Christmas Chronicles with a weird villain who is a fallen elf."
65 32% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) - Rated 30 Dec 2020
"I couldn't finish watching, it became too violent and horrifying near the end. Beautiful and intriguing until the final long, abusive hostage scene. Multiple storylines, some of which die prematurely. Ultimately the primary story seems to be about Dakota Johnson and her younger, seemingly mentally undeveloped sister whom she thought she was protecting from abuse all their lives, but was actually overseeing her becoming a sociopath. Everyone else is just in the wrong place at the wrong time."
70 50% The Art of Self-Defense (2019) - Rated 30 Dec 2020
"Interesting satire, funny but also unsettling at times. A karate school turns out to be much more than it seems after our mild-mannered protagonist decides to take lessons for self-protection and ironically gets drawn into a dark, mafia-like underworld."
65 32% Call Me Mister (1951) - Rated 29 Dec 2020
"Forgettable wartime romantic shenanigans involving being secretly being married to the wrong person; also let's put on a show."
