|83 T10||Gerald's Game (2017) - Jan 21, 2018
"A reminder why Stephen King is the King of Horror: this is the first horror movie out of Hollywood in over a decade to make me feel, well, horror."
|56 T5||(500) Days of Summer (2009) - Jan 20, 2018
"Way too self-aware and cutesy. I was annoyed."

|75 T9||Raw (2017) - Jan 12, 2018
"Ugly fun? The most affecting part of this is the ugliness of French university life as presented. However, if the movie was meant to be generally ugly, it doesn't go far enough elsewhere; and if it was meant to be fun and schlocky, the genuine ugliness undermines that intent. It's worth a watch, but be prepared to feel ambivalently about it."

|70 T8||It (2017) - Jan 10, 2018
"The second-best adaptation of a supernatural Stephen King horror story. It's no The Shining--it's been neutered too much, it's too rote and bombastic, and it doesn't display as much skill and artistry--but it's pretty good. The best pure horror movie of the last decade, probably (which isn't saying much, but still)."
|50 T3||Orgazmo (1997) - Jan 09, 2018
"Less unfunny than most budget 1990s comedies but suffers from the same core problem--the movie is but a shell for (meh to bad) jokes."
|74 T9||Ingrid Goes West (2017) - Jan 09, 2018
"It's a well-cast movie about an interesting topic that hasn't been done to death yet. Ingrid Goes West starts strong and quirky, and maintains much of its integrity until the last third, in which it loses narrative sophistication when it relies on well-worn story beats to reach a meaningless conclusion. It's a breezy watch, which is both its strength and its weakness--it's fun and unpreachy, but ultimately doesn't take us anywhere. Still well worth seeing for its novelty/freshness."
|67 T8||Birdman (2014) - Jan 07, 2018
"I'm not a fan of movies that focus on style over substance. Birdman is an okay story distinguished only by its overproduction, from the overused tracking shots to the annoying jazz/drum soundtrack. It's redeemed a little by the well-acted characters. Watch for Edward Norton and Emma Stone."
