    Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution


    Unbelievable. I live for movies like this.

    Crip Camp so easily could have slid into the comfortable, schmaltzy clutches of so many social justice docs and ended up a sanitized PSA of a movie, but (a few bad musical choices aside) elegantly and sometimes boldly sidesteps that fate. Instead, it is a superlative example of cinematic empathy and civil rights messaging. An empowering and deeply human viewing experience that I can't recommend enough.

    Now You See Me 2


    Remember that scene in The Dark Knight when the Joker says "how about a magic trick?" and then slams a dude's face down on a pencil?

    Watching this movie is like being that dude.

    It's a good thing I had to pee for 75% of this because at least I got to feel something.
