    The story of Paddington 2 is undeniably sweet and charming, but is nothing special. The visuals, while endearing and having its somewhat unique style, are also nothing special. The humor is quite silly, and while fell flat quite a bit, it also made me chuckle quite a bit.

    By far the best, most elevating part of Paddington 2 is the thematic material in the prison arc of the film. I have advocated for over a decade that prisoners should be…

    I’m happy to announce that RRR was just as entertaining and stylish as I hoped it would be. For those put off by a three hour run time, don’t be: the movie is very well paced and most of it flew by. I especially enjoyed the action, which felt to me like a stylistic combination of of Chinese kung fu and Tarantino, which although totally unrealistic was also totally rad. The soundtrack is also rad, and not scared of…
