    ★½

    I’m as much of a slut for Chris Evans porn as anyone, but jeez.

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    ★★

    Plotless world-building in shitty-looking and totally witless/weightless CGI. Franchising at its most cynical.

    Willem Dafoe is an even better Jesus in this than he was in The Last Temptation of Christ.

    ★★★½

    As much as I should (and mostly do) dislike this film, I find myself returning to it time and again, probably drawn in by more than my fascination for Tony Scott's lurid high-contrast aesthetics or yet another powerful but one-dimensional Denzel Washington performance. The whole thing is politically, ideologically, and in most other ways impossible to defend, and yet it has the powerful taste of good, slippery pulp fiction, its many overblown idiocies adding to rather than detracting from its strength as a film. Moth, meet flame.
