    From Up on Poppy Hill


    Charming! I like the clubhouse equally before and after the renovation. I am a complex, three-dimensional man: I am a slob but I can appreciate the finer things.

    I do like to see a film where cops and criminals are all just guys with guns, terrorizing equally, and there's no fantasy that one side is right. This movie comes close to that, but ultimately I think the audience is supposed to root for "good" to triumph over evil here. If I believed that part was satirical, then I guess this would be five stars.

    Fun! I've said it before, and it remains true today: Mary Elizabeth Winstead = automatic 3 star minimum. Missed it in the theater before the world shut down, watched it at home once I could rent it for an acceptable price. I'm a guy dumb enough to like the Deadpool movies, so I gotta enjoy this as least that much as that, and I did.

    Well it's that liminal time of year again, when I have to make a personal choice about how to sort and rank new films, because one source tells me this is a 2019 film, another says it's from 2020, etc. What better movie to represent this ongoing moment of confusion regarding time and on-screen media? I would have gladly watched a longer version of this, like say 90 minutes or even more maybe. Seen at a 9:45 PM screening with several friends on my 30th birthday; an instant classic memory.
