    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★★

    A perfect drive-in movie. Way more fun than it has any right to be.

  • The Pelican Brief

    The Pelican Brief

    ★★

    Hard meh.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★½

    Great, fantastically tense build up and dread for a disappointedly dull "meh" delivery. Egregiously long for what little it delivers on.

  • Double Jeopardy

    Double Jeopardy

    ½

    Go watch an episode of Dateline. It'll be more entertaining than this slog.

  • I Am Mother

    I Am Mother

    ★★

    I AM BORED.  This movie is about 30 minutes too long.

  • Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    ★★

    I enjoyed this even though it's not particularly good. Don't really understand why it exists but I do feel like Effron nailed Bundy's appearance more than once. You could shave 45 minutes off and have a much more watchable film.

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    An absolute blast that is immensely charming from start until finish.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★½

    Very long. But not too long. Immensely satisfying.

  • No Escape

    No Escape

    ★★★

    A bit longer than it needs to be. But an entirely competent mid-nineties homage to Mad Max that features Ray Liotta being Ray Liotta and Stuart Wilson enjoying the hell out of himself as the chief bad guy.

  • Pet Sematary

    Pet Sematary

    Woof. What a waste. The ground's not sour, Victor. This movie is sour.

  • Pet Sematary

    Pet Sematary

    ★★★

    Fred Gwyne steals the show. The sfx didn't age the best here but it's still got something to offer.

  • Deep Rising

    Deep Rising

    ★★★

    Somebody else suggested double featuring this with Virus and oh my god what a great idea.
