  • Sorry to Bother You

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★½

    I was in love with this, then it went double batshit insane, and I loved it even more

    equisapien crew ✊🏼

  • Custody

    Custody

    ★★★★½

    Does not skimp on the feel-bad goods!

  • Hell Baby

    Hell Baby

    ★★½

    After listening to Tom Lennon on The Movie Crypt I decided to finally give this a spin, and its pretty rough. It plays like mediocre sketch comedy stretched out way too long, and any semblance of a joke gets milked to groan-inducing lengths.

    I did mostly enjoy the priests and the cops whenever they were on screen though, so this gets a generous 2.5.

  • The Bad Batch

    The Bad Batch

    ★★★★

    I enjoyed this quite a bit despite being somewhat frustrated by the meandering pace. Some good editing could’ve/should’ve chopped this down a good 20 minutes and made it a real banger IMO. Still, it’s gross and acid-soaked and an interesting ride worth taking.

    Also, where has Suki Waterhouse been my whole life? 💘

  • Bird Box

    Bird Box

    ★★★

    Had my attention at first, but reveals how half-baked it is pretty early on. Sandra deserves some kudos because she is very good here and is just underserved by the script.

  • Bad Santa

    Bad Santa

    ★★★★★

    You can disagree, but this movie is perfect, and is the only priority-movie I have this time of year

  • P2

    P2

    ★★★½

    cat-and-mouse chase + boring monotone location + stiff and mostly unlikeable lead + great nice guy psycho Wes Bentley = fun, but mostly dull

  • Assassination Nation

    Assassination Nation

    ★★★★★

    Had to watch it two nights in a row because I was in love but mildly let down by the last act. And while the second viewing confirmed it is the weaker act, it didn’t at all detract from my enjoyment and firmly cemented AN in my top 10 (possibly top 5) of the year.

  • National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

    ★★★★

    I’ve watched this at least once every year since it came out and can’t imagine going a year without. blends so many tones and types of humor it’s hard to believe it works and holds up so well, and even though it’s a goofy mess, it’ll always be a 5 in my heart.

  • Mom and Dad

    Mom and Dad

    ★★★★

    Nic Cage passionately rage-ranting about growing-up to be a huge weiner whilst destroying a pool table with a sledgehammer = supremely my shit

  • Better Watch Out

    Better Watch Out

    ★★★½

    that 🖕🏼 at the end was really great

  • Rocky Balboa

    Rocky Balboa

    ★★★★½

    “Still have some stuff in the basement”

    Not quite as good as Creed (mostly because Rocky is even older and more divorced from the sport there, and the more sad and crumbling the Rocky, the better), but this gets back to the soul of the character the best since the first two and is easily my favorite Rocky-inside-the-ring film besides the original.
