    Friday the 13th Part III

    ★★½

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

    This is definitely a weaker entry than the previous two. It does get bonus points for introducing Jason's iconic hockey mask to the series. I've never seen this in 3D, so all the gimmicky shots of objects right in front of the camera lens have always been really strange with zero payoff.

I spent the first half of the film smiling uncontrollably as Lady Gaga’s character Ally is taken under rock star Jackson Maine’s…

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★

    I’m not going to lie, this movie wasn’t even on my radar a month ago, but it didn’t take long for the hype to build and make me think there might be something special here. I thought Marriage Story was absolutely fantastic. It’s a tight little story about a family going through the divorce process as the adults try to pursue their careers on opposite coasts while playing tug-a-war with their only child. I could really feel the authenticity in…
