    The premise of the film sounds like a bad SNL skit and the execution feels about the same. The film tries so hard to be modern that one wonders why it wasn't just set in the present day. Every new song made me roll my eyes so hard I started seeing spots. While the stepsisters and Idina Menzel's vocals are a highlight, the movie just seems like the wrong fit.

    In an age where Hollywood wants to make Jane Austen's works gritty, this adaptation of Emma stays true to the technicolor pastels of the regency period. The film somehow manages to both have high stakes and also take place in Austen's cozy version of pastoral Britain, where witty women trade flirtatious barbs with brash men who hide secret affections. Emma stands as an achievement in how to do Jane Austen right.

    The year is 1977, and an up-and-coming experimental filmmaker reinvented a genre the public generally ignored. The film features little people in brown robes, scenes ripped straight from Dune, and an imposing figure dressed in black.

    That movie was Star Wars. I have no idea what this film is.

    This movie is a throwback to those early 2010s movies where someone hears a noise, goes "Hello?" and then slowly walks into the dark hallway. The script for this movie is not only predictable, but it's every plot point goes out of its way to be the most insulting version of overdone horror movie cliches. This movie was marketed as James Wan's "Return to Horror," but it only reinforces the old saying, "You can never go home again.
