    “You know my favorite thing about the movie? Like it feels like a movie it feels like a real like go to the theater film movie that you know you kind of... the reason why you go to watch something on the big screen.”

    This “movie” is a lot like Harry Styles. Beautiful, empty and very dumb.

    Some of the dialogue is clunky but James Cameron is still the master of spectacle, innovation and action. I actually think it's a aged a little better and it's still the best use of 3D.

    ★★½

    I remember seeing trailers for this all the time back in '98. They positioned it as this whacky rom-com about two witch sisters that just can't find love, filled with Lilith Fair music of the time. But this movie is actually surprisingly dark and maybe leans more "Death Becomes Her." The problem is it never really fines a tone, sometimes it's really dark and sometimes as light and fluffy as cotton candy. The result is viewer whip lash.

    A terrible rom com that somehow has the same lighting set-ups as Eyes Wide Shut?

    Confess, Fletch

    ★★★½

    What a pleasant surprise. 30+ years after "Fletch Lives" killed what could have been a truly great franchise, we get another installment and it's pretty damn funny. Jon Hamm slides into the Fletch role smoothly, keeping the smart aleck charm that Chevy Chase brought to the role but ditching the broad disguise shtick that were a staple of the previous series. This sticks a lot closer to the books, with a complicated mystery and a breezy tone. The only complaint…

    Classic stand up with some edgy material in the mix. He doesn't always land but there are some solid bits. Might be just a little too dry for my tastes.

    The Technicolor Douglas Sirk horror melodrama to X’s 16mm Tobe Hooper grime fest. While I enjoyed X a little bit more, I can’t deny that Mia Goth is truly astonishing here, one of the best horror performances I’ve seen in a long time. Full on Mommy Dearest.

    What I noticed this time is that the audio mixers pump up the sound of cicada’s every time Jesse Plemons is on screen and it makes him 100 times more unsettling.

    The Mask of Zorro

    ★★★★

    I’ve always been fascinated by this surge of love for 99’s The Mummy over the last few years. A lot of that has to do with the fact that it nails that throwback aesthetic of classic adventure flicks. But this film came out 1 year earlier and is a much better representation of a classic adventure film. Great stunts, beautifully choreographed sword fights and a breezy swashbuckling tone. It’s a better film in my opinion and deserves a huge fan base.
