    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Apparently rock bottom for a famous conductor is a live anime show. Makes sense.

    Loved it

    The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

    ★★★★

    It's real cute. I don't know a single person who wouldn't have some fun with this one.

  • Ingrid Goes West

    Ingrid Goes West

    ★★★

    Aubrey Plaza kills it and the beginning is interesting but the more the movie went on, the less it worked for me culminating in an ending I really did not like. But the performances here are super memorable.

  • Willow

    Willow

    ★★★★

    I don't know what it is but I love Willow. Maybe it's all Val Kilmer and his confounding sword flips. Maybe it's the pure earnest charm of Warwick Davis. Maybe it's the old ladies punching each other. I don't know. But I went back recently and it's just so special.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★½

    Listen. It's interesting. Gorgeous. And some absolutely bonkers performances. But something about the lead just didn't work for me and that kept me from enjoying it as much as many others did.

  • Rosaline

    ★★★★

    I had a really good time with this one. Kaitlyn Dever is really really funny. And I'm a sucker for old timey setting but contemporary dialogue.

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★★

    Namor was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better version of that character onscreen. Ramonda was obviously also excellent. It was long, which is fine. Probably too much Ross and I didn't find Iron Heart all that necessary but people liked her so I don't know.

  • Don't Worry Darling

    Don't Worry Darling

    ★★

    An absolute masterclass in "overexplaining the mechanics at the expense of the metaphor".

    It's a very well shot movie though, so that gets it one star. And it has Kate Berlant, so that gets it a second star.

  • Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

    Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

    ★★★½

    Everything before Eat it: An okay music biopic parody that would work way better if Walk Hard didn't already exist.

    Everything after Eat it: Wonderful. Hilarious. I wish the whole movie was this.

  • Tooth Fairy

    Tooth Fairy

    ★½

    Watching this movie was uncomfortable. Something about the Rock or the sound or the writing really upset me. I can't put my finger on it. As a premise, it almost works but the execution was just so strange.

  • Practical Magic

    Practical Magic

    ★★★

    About at nineties as movies get. Sandra Bullock really works. Nicole Kidman is doing a lot.
