    ★★★★

    One of the most creative films I've seen in a while, The Lobster provides solid commentary about relationships, pressures of societal norms, and group think in general. The premise is unique; the script and performances bare Lanthimos' trademark peculiarity; the sets and locations do good job of immersing you into the film's awkward dystopia. Unfortunately, there weren't any actual Lobsters.

    Sully

    ★½

    This movie is boring as hell, unless you look at it as an allegory of McCarthyism, in which case it's still boring as hell. Instead of being about the actual plane landing in the Hudson, this movie's climax takes place in a boardroom, as onlookers watch people who are not Sully do a simulation of the thing that Sully actually did. It's like watching a reenactment within a reenactment, where no one cares and nothing of note happens. I will give some props to the costume department (heh) for Tom Hanks' bomb outfits-- that man kills the sweater-over-button-down look.
