|75 78%||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - Jun 23, 2019
"It's impressive how many characters they were able to cram into this without making it feel overbloated. There were some story lines that felt rushed or underdeveloped, but it wasn't enough to drag down the bigger picture. If you've watched more than a couple of the other MCU movies, you'll definitely enjoy seeing how things are all starting to come together."
|76 80%||Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000) - Jun 21, 2019
"Larry David is maybe the world's foremost comedic genius. There's so much here that's fantastic. That said, the improv nature of the show means a lot of the show is sort of "down time" that's mildly amusing and serving just to set up comedy later in the episode. So it doesn't pack the same punch as Seinfeld. Still, I think it's must-watch for any Seinfeld fan."
|61 39%||Jo Koy: Comin' in Hot (2019) - Jun 18, 2019
"Koy isn't particularly witty and doesn't shine in his writing. But he does do some great impressions, particularly of his family members. It's nothing original, but it is entertaining and funny enough."
|69 59%||Mid-Sock Crisis (2019) - Jun 17, 2019
"Nicely written and executed meta narrative. There are some witty and clever elements, and it makes good use of the sock puppet conceit."
|72 69%||Thor: Ragnarok (2017) - Jun 17, 2019
"Easily the best of the Thor movies. Good use to humor (even discounting some of the really cheeseball slapstick humor), some fun action sequences, and different enough to feel like it's actually taking advantage of the Thor mythos rather than just being a cookiecutter MCU movie."
|59 34%||Murder Mystery (2019) - Jun 17, 2019
"Sandler has settled in to his niche nicely. His early movies were fantastic. His middle period was the worst. Now he's found a nice little niche where his movies are basically exactly the same, provide good enough entertainment to pass the time, and don't bother reaching for the stars. You know exactly what you're getting in to, and they're perfect for hangovers or watching while doing light chores."
|88 96%||Incendies (2010) - Jun 10, 2019
"I can understand the complaint that some things seem a little contrived. That being said, I still found it extremely powerful and the ending allowed for the story's theme to fully develop. It's a movie that I don't think I'll ever forget, and those just don't come around all that often."
|61 39%||Black Mirror: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too (2019) - Jun 10, 2019
"The conceit with Ashley Too was fun, but the poppy stuff is just as annoying as it's intended to be. There's also some weirdly broad humor in this episode that just felt totally out of place. Definitely a weaker episode, but it's still got enough in it to be enjoyable."
|65 50%||Black Mirror: Smithereens (2019) - Jun 10, 2019
"The ideas behind this episode are not anything particularly fresh. But, the whole thing is totally worth it for Topher Grace. He is perfect here, and there's a lot of good humor if you can appreciate it under these circumstances."
|77 82%||Black Mirror: Striking Vipers (2019) - Jun 10, 2019
"Technology has already fundamentally transformed how we connect in society, and it's just started to fundamentally transform how we interact sexually. This is probably second only to Her in its exploration of that."
