  • The Post

    The Post

    ★★★½

    "The press was to serve the governed, not the governors." Fuck you, Trump.

  • Last Flag Flying

    Last Flag Flying

    ★★★½

    The first Linklater film during which I couldn't sense his presence as an auteur, but enjoyed nonetheless.

  • Downsizing

    Downsizing

    ★★★½

    Honey, I Shrunk The Kids as written by Thomas Malthus.

  • Logan Lucky

    Logan Lucky

    ★★★½

    The biggest head scratcher at the end of this heist flick was what the hell Seth McFarlane was doing in it.

  • Detroit

    Detroit

    ★★★½

    Bigelow's focus was clearly on the midsection of the film, which is viscerally powerful and so effective that it's difficult to watch, but the beginning and end are muddled and misguided.

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★½

    Just really fucking fun, its unabashedly cool style and musically synchronized action choreography more than make up for some lapses in compelling dialogue.

  • The Lego Batman Movie

    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★½

    A frenzied and joke-packed visual spectacule with a clear respect for the joyous chaos of a child creating their own Lego battle, less emotional depth than the original but still heartfelt.

  • Sully

    Sully

    ★★★½

    A solid movie in every way, like a well made table it just does the job without a lot of flash.

  • Batman & Bill

    Batman & Bill

    ★★★½

    A doc that plays more like a detective movie and clips along at a quick pace.

  • The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years

    The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years

    ★★★½

    A little repetitive but fans won't look away.
