    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★★★

    The more I think about this movie, the more I like it. I'm bumping this up a star. It doesn't feel necessary to the Terminator mythology - however one might untangle that, but I like that it gets back to a basic chase and that it is unapologetically feminist.

    Years and Years

    ★★★★

    I really liked this. It was depressing and infuriating and would leave me depressed and angry at times, mostly because the world I'm seeing is very well represented by this movie. Ultimately, I think this is too optimistic, but thank goodness. By the end, I could not have handled things going any other way.

    The Loneliest Planet

    ★★★★

    Nothing happens for an hour. Then one thing happens and someone makes a knee jerk reaction. Then one no one talks about either the thing that happened or the the reaction to what happened. Hard to say since no one's talking. Then nothing happens for another hour until there's an awkward moment. Then nothing happens at the end. I was riveted.

    7 Chinese Brothers

    ★★★

    During the Q&A after the movie, one gentleman told the director that he needs to tweak the screenplay a little before he sends it to the big multiplexes, and then proceeded to talk about a script of his that he plans to shoot this year and get into next year's festival. He plans to get a bigger star than Jason Schwartzman. The director nodded and said, "okay."
