    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A gorgeous film marred by an ending that deflates all tension and emotion by having none of the characters seem to give a crap about the kid that just got murdered.

    The Neon Demon

    ★★★½

    The Neon Demon satirizes the beauty industry using its own language. Banality and empty messaging, playing around with ideas with no intention of following through on them. They're all part of the vernacular it uses to ultimately, in fact, say something.

    But does it matter

    ★★★

    "I'll do one where a jerk gets tortured to death by hot chicks."
    "Huh... Well, Kevin, I mean, we're giving you the Halloween segment, in a horror film... You should really tie it back to Halloween somehow."
    "Well... I guess... One of them could wear a costume? Oh, and the Inciting Incident could involve candy?"
    "...*sigh*... Can you have it to us by next month?"
