The Wretched is a fun flick, and even if it didn’t leave a lasting impression that doesn’t mean I was any less entertained.
Wendy isn’t a modern spin on a classic tale of fantasy and wonder, it’s an outright nightmare I never want to think about ever again.
The final cry The Whistlers makes is one of forgiveness and grace, the unspoken connective pull of human understanding impossible to resist.
Witches in the Woods isn’t much fun to watch.
V: The Final Battle is worth a look. While undeniably somewhat disappointing, it’s still a fun bit of retro television science fiction that sometimes takes some fairly shocking narrative risks that were well ahead of their time.
Trolls World Tour rarely allowed me to catch my breath. It even more seldomly put anything that was happening into coherent perspective.
Just Mercy is a good film. Destin Daniel Cretton does a fine job balancing the many dramatic dynamics of his film, rarely allowing the proceedings to dip too far into maudlin melodrama or schmaltzy cliché, while at the same time Jaimie Foxx delivers one of the best performances of his Oscar-winning career.
Never Rarely Sometimes Always is a magnificent piece of culturally observational storytelling that is purposefully raw in its depictions of female friendships in the face of extreme physical and emotional crisis.
I still really like Sophia Takal’s down-and-dirty take on Black Christmas. It gets better for me with each viewing.
