    Midnight Mass

    ★★★★½

    After kind of misstepping for me with Bly Manor, this is Flanagan back to nearly the best he's been.

    You know what kinds of things to expect from him, and you get them, but the horror vehicle he uses is very different. It's slow burn but very high impact, this works more strongly on a pure horror standpoint than his other shows while not quite reaching the level of characterization that makes Hill House untouchable. That said, he still hits…

    There are parts of this I like, but it feels like a mess that Craig, Kurylenko and Dench only barely kept above water.

    I sympathize for projects impacted by the writers' strike, a lot of potential great material was stifled during that period and people were really trying to hold their own.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★

    This had 5 star potential, I was in love with the first half. The suspense, the discomfort, the mood, the dialogue, I was unbelievably hooked. Then it's like the movie tripped walking down a hill and just started tumbling faster and faster. The mood started to break, the fascinating became the nonsensical, the pretention reared its head, and then poof: nothing. It totally and completely lost me. I can't overstate my disappointment. At least the filmmaking itself was good I guess.

    Jessie Buckley is astounding though, please put her in more movies
