    Mo' Better Blues

    ★★★½

    Mo’ Better Blues is an intriguing character study brought to life with expected panache from Spike Lee. It’s certainly an entertaining movie but it never really grabbed this specific viewer until the final twenty minutes, which is lovely and a perfect ending.

    The Emoji Movie

    ★★★★★

    Move over Christopher Nolan! The Emoji Movie is easily the greatest film of 2017 and a striking condemnation of all who have insulted its very existence. A brilliant commentary of how the modern world's over-reliance on texting and pictures to portray emotion, this film does exactly that. When Gene the Meh Emoji is denied the love of his father because he actually enjoys being alive, it's a perfect representation of how toxic masculinity prevents one feeling emotions other than raw…
