    ★★★½

    I've seen this three times now, and while it does feel a bit dated with very specific references to a time that I have no memory of, some small decisions here and there are quite odd to me, and Bill Murray may sell the cynical corporate jerkoff a little too well compared to his nicer side, there's still a lot of fun to be had with this 80's corporate/media version of the Christmas Carol formula.

    I think the scene that best symbolizes this movie is when The Dude tries to take initiative and figure out what's happening by sketching over what Jackie Treehorn wrote and it's just a bad drawing of a naked man with an erection.

    ★★★★★

    Just saw Paddington 2 with my family and man was that absolute wholesomekino. Everything that was amazing in the first Paddington is even better in here. Every performance is great. Paddington as a character is so charming and sincere. The comedy is hilarious. There are tons of little details packed into scenes it's easy to miss, and the comedy gives off a vibe reminiscent of classic slapstick comedies. They even reference Charlie Chaplin and one segment seemed inspired by Buster…

    ★★★★½

    It was a lot to take in, but I think I really liked it. Great atmosphere, really nails the feel of the period and has a very physical feel to it. Funnier than I expected, and more sexual than I expected. There's a lot going on, but the core dynamic between the two amazing performances is really solid. Not so much really scary but an interesting delve into sea-themed, isolated madness. I highly recommend it if you're prepared for the weird sexual stuff.
