    Lady Bird

    ★★★★★

    Man, I've been on a roll with seeing great movies. Aside from the ending feeling a bit dragged out, I absolutely adored Lady Bird. Saoirse Ronan is the perfect embodiment of writer/director Greta Gerwig, managing to be lovable and irritating at the same time. The supporting cast is also great, with Laurie Metcalf, in particular, showing some exceptional acting chops in her performance.

    Noah Baumbach just gets better and better with each film. While I still consider Mistress America to be my favorite Baumbach by a slight margin, The Meyerowitz Stories still excels at being hilarious, moving, and an incredible showcase for the acting talents of all involved, particularly Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Grace Van Patten. I would have said Dustin Hoffman, but come on, EVERYONE knows how amazing of an actor Dustin Hoffman is, and he surely doesn't disappoint here. One of the best movies of 2017 IMO.

Some of the fastest action in a movie this year, and some of the funnier moments I've seen this summer. I don't expect this to make a whole bunch of money, but…

    Mommy

    ★★★★★

    Funny, heartbreaking, and beautiful, Mommy is a superb film that, while it could have been maybe 10 minutes shorter, captures the true relationship that a mom and a son have with one another. Incredible cinematography, brilliantly acted, and well written/directed.
