What I will say is that, much like the first film, I’m totally fine with Deadpool 2, readily enjoying much of it. But that still doesn’t mean I plan on revisiting this sequel anytime soon.
I found Breaking In to be spectacularly difficult to sit through, it’s overall mediocrity a continual source of frustration that I kept feeling long after the film itself had come to its anemically dispiriting end.
Even if Life of the Party isn’t a film I’m going to be thinking about much longer than the time it takes to write this review, it still makes me feel good enough that I’m happy I gave it a look, the overall positivity with which Deanna chooses to live her life undeniably infectious.
Desolation is an undeniably creepy film, and the unexplainable nature of the threat tracking every move Abby, Sam and Jen make couldn’t help but make my skin crawl. Sam Patton has made a fine little independent shocker genre fans are almost certain to enjoy, this backpacking horror opus a chilling thriller I’m happy I took the time to revisit.
While I certainly have to be in the mood to give La Belle Noiseuse a look, this film is still one stunning examination of art and artistry that I find more and more to revel in, mull over and adore each time I do. This new restoration is as pristine as it is magnificent, Cohen Media’s Blu-ray presentation by all accounts perfect.
“Her story, it gives us as human beings something to aspire to. If people watched this film and had thoughts about how you deal with adversity, learn ways of how to be civil with friends or with colleagues that disagree with you, then I think we’d feel good about that. Justice Ginsburg’s example is a good one to aspire to.”
Tully builds to a shattering climax that brought a cascade of tears to my eyes, Marlo’s destination as cathartic, and as gut-wrenching, as any I could have imagined it would be before the film began.
Make no mistake, RBG is massively enjoyable, watching Justice Ginsburg live her best life as joyous a spectacle as anything I’ll likely have the pleasure to sit through this year.
While there’s no doubt as to where any of this is headed, getting to that conclusion still isn’t without its rewards, and thanks to Kingsley’s excellence Backstabbing for Beginners is a suitably intelligent procedural thriller I’m glad I took the time to watch.
