    Tenet

    ★★

    I didn't see Tenet in theaters because I didn't want to risk catching covid. And I didn't see it at the drive-in because I didn't want to see it with potentially poor audio.

    So of course I watched it on my TV while I am sick with covid. I guess those are the breaks.

    Anyway, this movie didn't do much for me. The set pieces are as good as any other Nolan blockbuster set piece. But Tenet suffers a lot…

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    The way this movie takes Ruben's focus on reclaiming what he's lost and uses his triumph as a descent into melancholy and confirmation of a bitter (for him) reality is great. Riz Ahmed is great. And it's no surprise the movie has really good sound design.

    Sometimes They Come Back

    ★★★

    Rewatched this while working from home solely because I've been working on a Top 19 Stephen King Movie/TV Works list for an eventual Tower Junkies episode.

    It's currently at my number 19 spot on my list. I really don't know if it's because there's such a glut of sub-par/objectively terrible King adaptations out there or if Sometimes They Come Back is really a hidden gem of an adaptation. It will almost definitely be kicked off the list before we do…

    Jexi

    ★½

    Last movie of 2020, specifically because I started the year with a rewatch of Her.

    This movie was terrible. Some of the vulgar humor worked for me. The "sex" scene with Jexi surprisingly made me laugh quite a bit. And it was refreshing to see Adam Devine in a likable role, even if everything in the movie is absurd and over the top.

    It probably would have been better if the jealous Jexi stuff came sooner and was more of…

    Joker

    ★★★★

    When Joker is crossing the street in traffic, do you think he yells "Hey! I'm Joaquin here!"

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★★

    Captain Marvel is a blast. Brie Larson is fantastic and her dry wit and delivery really gives Carol a unique style. I appreciate that the movie didn't lean into the fish out of water humor that the original Thor did. Instead, the fun is directly tied to the plot and mythos of the Kree and Skrull war and the MCU itself.

    The de-aging CGI has come such a long way since Civil War and Ant-Man. It looks impeccable, though Coulson…
