    The Living Daylights

    ★★½

    This felt like a real do-nothing operation. A few notable stunts aren't enough to balance out the fact that I couldn't tell you much of anything that happened.

    Resident Evil: Damnation

    ★½

    It's been awhile since I've had to work this hard to finish a movie. The animators deserve about as much credit as we can give them but it's otherwise a mess of a movie that genre hops way too much and ends up looking like, if you can believe it, you're watching an only okay video game.

    Barton Fink

    ★★★★

    I've been aware of Barton Fink for as long as I can remember. This is probably, as is the case for most of my cultural awareness, because of The Simpsons. That being said, I found the movie to be a nourishing look at the creative process, movie-making, and the stories we tell ourselves to keep ourselves going.

    I hosted a podcast episode about the movie, which you can find here.

    The Man with the Golden Gun

    ★★★

    As the series gets more fun and absurd, it also still doesn't seem to care how deeply problematic it is. Goodnight is probably the worst-written character in the series to date. She's an MI-6 sexdoll oaf who only feigns self-respect as a seduction tactic.
