    T2 Trainspotting

    ★★★

    Mad at myself for not catching up with this one earlier. It lags a bit, but is largely a compelling and moving portrait of time, aging, and regret. Anthony Dod Mantle's cinematography is stunning.

  • Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

    ★★★

    Parts of this movie are a ton of fun. Parts of this movie are insanely dumb. And then you have quite possibly one of the most egregious examples of miscasting in history with Dane DeHaan as the dashing male lead. WTF.

    The Lorax

    ★½

    10 minutes of message shoehorned into 80 minutes of nonsensical, unfunny gags and unnecessary pop songs. It's possible to make an entertaining and appealing children's film without talking down (see: Pixar, How to Train Your Dragon), but apparently Illumination Entertainment thinks cute schtick and jokes upon jokes are the only way to keep kids' attention.
