    Love, Simon

    ★★½

    I'm heartened it's as mediocre as it is. There are far too many intentionally unexceptional gay people out there who have been waiting for a movie like this for far too long.

    The Post

    ★★★½

    To borrow a phrase from one of the movie's many, many awful men, Spielberg here sacrifices a "more prudent" film in favor of a more palpably urgent one. It's a trade-off that's going to age this film poorly in a heartbeat, or a four-year term, but god forbid the last great Hollywood classicist continue trying to craft national-cultural signposts. He and he alone can get away with evidently doing this in his sleep.

    ★½

    Eddie Redmayne plays transgender the way actors in the '30s and '40s played alcoholics.

    La La Land

    ★★½

    It's just heartening to know that, had it been released in 2016 instead of 1980, Xanadu would've gotten fantastic reviews.
