    An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

    ★★½

    Aubrey Plaza and Jemaine Clement embark on another bizarre crime spree, and this time, there's no other reality-altering superbeing to stop them! No, this is not a "Legion" grade of surreal, though I'm more worried about it being Jim Hosking grade after "The Greasy Strangler".

    Crazy Rich Asians

    ★★★½

    There's only one thing more empowering to Americans of East Asian descent than lumping all of their ethnicities into an entirely different continent's demonym: calling them crazy.

Minority casting must be misguided in Hollywood if Constance Wu is taking titles like these,…

Perhaps making up a New Jersey city instead of setting this in Manchester, Kentucky, is how Sayles…

    The Final Girls

    ★★★½

    And here I thought Abigail Breslin was the "final girl", but apparently, there are a bunch of other ladies who are finite in something. Leave it to me to know about and remember "Final Girl" enough to think about it first thing when I see this film (Alexander Ludwig seriously stars in both movies, so I find it impossible to not), while everyone else is possibly thinking about "American Horror Story" when they see Taissa Farmiga. It's hard to not…
