    Drop Dead Gorgeous

    ★★★½

    There’s some terribly clever stuff throughout Drop Dead Gorgeous, and it evokes the comedies of Christopher Guest in its best moments. Certain strokes of humor haven’t aged as gracefully, but the film is undeniably funny with lots of great performances.

  • Ford v Ferrari

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★★★

    This is easily one of the more engaging racing movies I’ve seen in awhile. Damon and Bale anchor it with their charisma, and the racing photography is top notch. My worldview isn’t necessarily impacted by Ford v Ferrari, but it was a terrifically entertaining way to share this story.

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    ★★★★

    Fast Times blazed the trail for several teen coming of age comedies, not least of all Dazed and Confused, my personal favorite from that genre. While heightened at times, the stories of these teens feel relatable. Most of the film ages pretty well with a few exceptions thanks to the direction of Amy Heckerling, and the soundtrack is one of the all time best.

  • Terminator Salvation

    Terminator Salvation

    ★★★

    Not as bad as I remember, but by no means a classic. Christian Bale isn’t bad, but he doesn’t have much to work with. Sam Worthington is the big, distracting plain bagel at the center of this. He needlessly distracts from key players like John Connor and Kyle Reese and can’t quite nail down an American accent. That being said, there’s some great action sequences and I genuinely loved all of the practical Terminator effects throughout the movie.
