    Point Break

    ★★★★

    A foot chase pauses briefly when Patrick Swayze throws a pit bull at Keanu Reeves, and when Keanu caught it my girlfriend said, "It's a prequel to John Wick." Three comedy points.

    ★★★★★

    Right now one of the most popular reviews on this site is one that points out this period drama set in NYC contains no black people. I've thought about my rating and decided I must not be intersectional enough to deduct points from this movie. Something to work on. Also, the Academy robbed this movie, especially in the costumes category. Fuck Fury Road.

    ★★★½

    This film is, among other things, but first and foremost, a cautionary tale about becoming Extremely Online.

    The Farewell

    ★★★★★

    Moviegoing as wish fulfillment/peek into another life: what's it like to be 30 and have a living grandparent? I love a film with a lot of meals, feasts even. Another great joy is watching people play a drinking game you don't know the rules of (reminded me of The Baxter). The graveyard scene is, to me, everything. A+, 10/10, would die for Nai Nai.
