"Audrey Hepburn is tremendous as Eliza, in both of her roles. She's incredibly likable, perhaps even more so as her initial role. There's a lot of humor here, particularly through the conflict between the two leads. Some of the latter songs are too long and not that great, but there are many good ones. The ending needed work."
|72 43%||The Ritual (2017) - Mar 17, 2019
"A decent horror outing without too many jump scares. It holds back the reveal until fairly late, so that's a plus. The reveal itself doesn't disappoint. Some great forest locations and a clever mix at the end. Funny early, thanks to some good chemistry."
|78 65%||Dances with Wolves (1990) - Feb 08, 2019
"Holy smokes, it's four hours long! If you have the patience then this is a good movie to sit back and enjoy. It's funny at times and also rather depressing The movie has a few things that weren't in the books and vice versa. I don't think the movie captures the Sioux POV nearly as well as the book, but you can't say it's too short. To be honest I found some of the music repetitive and it puts a fair bit of pressure on the landscape vistas. Romance was better in the book."

"I like Jake in this movie and it has this quirky appeal that hits a pretty high point at about the mid way. It could have been a great horror film but it ends up being really shallow amalgamation of a few talented actors being a bit weird. It absolutely fails with last act when it seemed to be building up to something great. Has the right colors and has a good canvas, but the art piece ends up being ugly."
|80 76%||The Goodbye Girl (1977) - Jan 30, 2019
"The dialogue is so sharp that it could cut a phone book in half. Very clever and quite funny most of the time. My only wish here is a slower transition period for the romance as they go from dislike to love in a short time. Lucy also needed a bit more dialogue in the back half because she is an absolute delight. Great song."
|55 11%||Polar (2019) - Jan 30, 2019
"Didn't hate it but it starts very badly and isn't a great movie. Some decent bits and some completely stupid bits. It has one sex scene that goes on forever. There is one good action scene in a corridor and the general combat is fun enough. The A-team are largely stupid and bring the movie down."
|58 13%||First Man (2018) - Jan 20, 2019
"Doesn't work in many respects. My biggest complaint is just how scattershot it is and how these little scenes don't add anything. I find it hard to believe that Armstrong's life, compressed down to 2 hours, could be so boring. Real life is not all neat and tidy, so why do they decide to add a special moment to make it seem that way? Buzz is the biggest jerk and nothing comes of it. It could have pushed the angle about the moon trip being a waste of money, instead it flounders with no message."
|79 69%||The Lobster (2015) - Jan 06, 2019
"Quite clever and interesting. The relationship hotel was rather amusing as the couples interact like autistic children. I felt the last third fell away from its humor and message, but still a good film overall. "
|81 82%||Midnight in Paris (2011) - Jan 05, 2019
"Owen Wilson as not a complete idiot is a rare thing, so worth watching for that. I love how funny this is, constantly for subtle reasons. I knew nothing about this before watching it and was pleasantly surprised by its weirdness. Film is too short, probably."
|62 18%||Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) - Jan 02, 2019
"It subverted a few expectations at the end but this is the worst film in the trilogy. The action is mostly slick and fun. Some changes they made from the book are bad, but we did get a cool bus scene. Nowhere near enough zombies. Patricia Clarkson mopes around corridors and looks like she never wants to act again. Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) mopes in a lab coat and should probably never act again. The ending is stupid because it is half-book and half-nonsense."
