    My husband proposed to me an hour before we saw this movie, so yeah, I'd say it's the freakin' bomb

    Netflix really has planted a flag on the Teen/YA market, huh? 

    Jennifer Aniston and Dolly Parton notwithstanding, the combined talents of director Anne Fletcher, writer Kristin Hahn, and cinematographer Elliot Davis really make Dumplin’ pop. I went in expecting pretty average teen fare and got a surprisingly lovely movie, on all levels. Very glad I gave it a chance.

    This movie is a better version of Point Break. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Unbreakable

    ★★★★

    No other superhero film like this one in the world. Shyamalan has some really smart and interesting things to say about depression and masculinity here, with a sheen of comics deconstruction on top. 

    Actually, now that I think about it, a lot of superhero comics have tried to do something similar to Unbreakable, but they’re almost always too heavy-handed. Shyamalan found precisely the right balance with David and Elijah and they way they’re both drowning, in diametrically opposed fashions.

    ★★★½

    Nice to see a Shane Black script with a female lead for once, even if a lot of the dialogue is The Most ‘90s. 

    And not for nothing, but my cat was RIVETED during the badass ice-skating scene.
