    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    ★★★

    So Jumanji is sentient and can understand kids no longer play with boardgames so overnight, it became a video game? I yelled in anger immediately.

    However, I had signed up for a stupid action movie so I stayed. Honestly, it's not that bad. It's funny, stupid and Jack Black is everything- words I never thought I would say. It's just not JUMANJI.

    It's a completely separate thing. It's a good laugh and the action is fun.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★

    It took me a while to get into this. The first forty minutes felt like the most pretentious, empty thing I had seen in a while. It was when finally the spark began between the two characters that I really got into it. They way they portrayed intimacy, lust and unfiltered desire for each other really pulled me into their love story.

    I think we can all agree the father's advice is what makes the movie and the final scene. I cried like a baby.

    Solid film. Please don't make a sequel.

    The Babadook

    ★★★

    I am not a big horror movie fan, mostly because they scare the bejesus out of me and haunt for the rest of the week. I can't say why but I was feeling brave and decided to give this movie a chance. While I was glad to see that my threshold for horror has increased, I don't feel this movie is as fantastic as many people say.

    The approach to the horror genre is certainly refreshing. There is not that…

    Absolutely amazing! Skarsgard completely made Pennywise his own with a goofy maniacal laugh and terrifying appearances. Also, the New Kids on the Block references were on point!
