    Serenity

    ½

    Haven't been on here in a minute but yeah, if you're looking for some quality so bad it's good cinema this is the place. Serenity is comically awful to start with atrocious dialogue, direction, characterization, and even acting (despite the talented cast) but then gets better as it jumps the shark in hilarious fashion.

Some particular highlights were Elizabeth Olsen, the flashback scene, and the score (as well as Sheridan's aforementioned direction).

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★½

    Call Me by Your Name is, for the most part, a very solid film highlighted by a magnificent lead performance by Timothee Chalamet, a strong script, and some great moments of direction. Rating drops for me because I felt like the relationship between Elio and Oliver wasn't developed well enough in the first half of the film and, frankly, that it wasn't always believable, but nonetheless a very good film. Watching Chalamet as the credits role is a true treat…
