    The Hunt for Red October

    ★★★★

    Ah, yesh. The Lithuanian shubmarine captain with the Scottish accent, who’sh working for the Russhians but wantsh to defect to the U-Esh of A.

    Pretty fun, stellar cast.

  • Ocean's Eight

    Ocean's Eight

    ★★★½

    Bit formulaic — but what do you expect from a heist movie? I enjoyed watching it. Liked the cast. Wouldn’t mind a sequel; or maybe even a prequel that tells us what’s up with all that sexual tension between Debbie and Lou.

    ★★★

    Visually I thought it was great: great cinematography, colours and production design. But it was a bit too slow for my taste and it had trouble keeping my attention.

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★½

    I’m a gooey romantic. I love movies. I love behind the scenes at the movies. I love long takes. I love jazz. I love astronomy. I love hoping I was just 1/10th as cool as Ryan Gosling. I love Emma Stone. I love love.

    I love La La Land’s cinematography. I love the costume design. I love the lighting. I love the music. I love the dancing. I love the colours. I love the look.

    I love this movie!
