    Marcel the Shell with Shoes On

    ★★★★½

    I loved this, but I was bound to, considering its tone is somehow a perfect triangulation of the gentler Ghibli movies, early Pixar, and How To With John Wilson. Casting Isabella Rossellini was a stroke of genius. Hard to imagine a better version of this particular movie; an impossibly whimsical concept, executed with ingenuity, warmth and subtle profundity.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    This is just Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again for middle-aged dudes and their boomer dads and no, I'm not going to elaborate on that.
