    A Christmas Story Live!

    ★★½

    It's still impressive for what it is. I don't think they did very much to heighten this musical that isn't fantastic to begin with. The kids are talented and their ability to stay in character while multitasking with the pressures of a live television performance speaks above all else. Maya Rudolph is lovely... but Fox should avoid casting performers who don't sing to sing. It's not fair to us and it's very unfair to her. Chris Diamantopoulos should return to…

    ★★★

    I'm so mad because I liked this a lot and even loved parts of it. I'm not great at sitting through films were you experience a lot of second hand embarrassment for the lead.

    Everything works. Every single character shines. It's actually incredible that not a single Avenger gets the shaft in…

    ★★★★★

    My rating may be generous? But I honestly can't think of something I didn't like about the movie. Maybe one thing with a "finishing move" for the plot but that's hardly worth losing even half a star over.

    This is by far my favorite of the year so far, out of 138 new releases. I loved it in 3D, which I was originally worried about. It was so much fun. Even if you don't see it in 3D I think…
