    This Is the End

    I watched like 10 minutes of this on my plane Monday morning, so I figured I’d give it second look finally. The Apatow-vengers. It took me a little time to come around on this one, but I really like this. Such a fun skewering of the Hollywood social circle and a touching lament of friendship in general, and the cycles it goes through. It’s also darn funny. Danny McBride should’ve won an Oscar for this.

    Also, this is the way, way, way better version of Bird Box.

  • Glass

    Glass

    Glass feels like a fascinating culmination of M. Night’s career bundled up into one messy movie that’s far too interesting to dismiss. Third act is defeating, but the guy’s still got it. Good Split sequel...I’d rather not discuss what it means for Unbreakable.

  • Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

    Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

    Teen Titans Go! To the Movies was the most surprising thing I’ve seen at the movies in a long time. I *could not stand* the trailer, but whew, that’s a delightful kid’s movie. It’s basically Deadpool for the 12 and under crowd, with even more piercing jabs at the DCEU.


    They reference the Animaniacs in this, which was quite fitting. This is basically the Animaniacs/Freakazoid for the dubstep/Snapchat generation.

    Also, I have no clue what the mid-credits scene means, but the children in my theater erupted in cheers and applause. One kid screamed, “it’s a miracle!” I laughed for about a minute.

  • The Kid Who Would Be King

    The Kid Who Would Be King

    Very much a Wright/Cornish-ready family flick with Brexit on its mind. Endlessly clever and inspired. Very much for kids first, but it’s so nice to see Cornish directing again. Angus Imrie is a hoot (pun intended).
