    Baywatch

    Perversely ogling in the direction of its lead cast, Baywatch both delights and disgusts in the presence of exposed bodies, finding reason to scoff at genitals and body hair with the same vigour with which it gawks at tight swimsuits and athletic physiques. Transforming both the hideous and the beautiful into something equally unpalatable, the movie insults those unfortunate enough to meet its shallow gaze, ensuring that most gags are met with eye rolls rather than laughter while barely attempting to capture the true essence of the TV show.

    Snatched

    ★★

    While viewers struggle to adjust to Goldie Hawn’s new face after her fifteen year hiatus, Snatched finds something far more hideous through the presence of Amy Schumer as her obsession with bodily functions and untamed vaginas creates a cringe-worthy alternative to the age-old dick joke. Refusing to stray away from her own insecurities, Schumer finds pseudo-empowerment in self-ridicule as her poofy face, tramp stamp, and unwashed private parts become the butt of a string of jokes revolving around her unending lack of confidence.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    A multidimensional masterwork of epic proportions, crossing the boundaries of space and time with a universal tale of discovery during moments of complete uncertainty. Strong-minded but tender in its depiction of solitude, time travel, and the power unconditional love, Interstellar is a cinematic page-turner and it’s assembled with religious ambition by Christopher Nolan whose transcendent take on Sci-Fi opens the door to a discussion worth having about the importance of family during times of crisis.

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★

    Revenge is a dish best served in hardback and Nocturnal Animals couldn’t be more audacious in its exploration of literary malevolence. In a time where subtweeting and unfriending have become the standard way to send a message about a failed relationship, a movie that dedicates an entire novel to the person who ruined an author’s life feels like a pretty contemptuous one.
