    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★

    I was excited for Batman to be funny again, but like the other Lego movie, the comedy isn't quite enough to compensate for a lame-ass plot. There are a number of truly inspired jokes, and the animation looks really good, but it's still just ok in the end. 

    Biggest weakness: this movie is too damn long. 

    Biggest strength: michael cera as robin.

  • Fifty Shades Darker

    Fifty Shades Darker

    ★★

    A crushing disappointment. The first movie benefited greatly from Sam Taylor-Johnson's sensual touch, Dakota Johnson's star-making performance, and one of the best movie endings in recent memory. This unfortunate sequel has the disadvantage of being written by a person who has absolutely no idea how dramatic narratives work. Dakota does her best to keep the movie afloat with all her charisma, but it's simply not enough.
