    Long Shot

    Surprisingly effective when it comes to the whole romantic part of a romantic comedy. Seth Rogen smartly cools his jets so he can watch his co-star Charlize Theron pummel us with her considerable, and criminally underused, comedic skills.

    The Dead Don't Die

    Exactly what you expect from a zombie movie directed by Jim Jarmusch. While the deadpan dialogue pinballing between Bill Murray, Adam Driver, and Chloe Sevigny is enjoyable, it was the sight of Driver rolling up to the scene of a massacre in a Smart Car that floored me.

    A confident, vibrant, and outright hilarious debut from director Olivia Wilde. As best friends, Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein have a remarkable chemistry, and the rest of the cast — including a truly inspired Billie Lourd — shine just as bright. The overall result is one of the best teen comedies in years.

    Uncut Gems

    Sheer madness from the Safdie Brothers, with an Adam Sandler performance criminally ignored by the Oscars. While the ending flirts with being a bit cheap, the film as a whole is a master class in how medium close-ups can really stress you the fuck out.
