    A Very Murray Christmas

    ★★★★

    I think I enjoyed this more than I should have. It’s just a good, warm, slightly tongue-in-cheek Christmas special.

    And that Phoenix song, right?

    The Man Who Invented Christmas

    ★★★

    A good movie. Dickens and Scrooge’s emotional turn didn’t quite feel justified, but I left happy. I think this would actually work better as a play. That being said, the cinematography and lighting were really dynamic and always interesting to watch.

    My least favorite of the post-Tree of Life trilogy...but I'm not sure why. I still enjoyed how everything unfolded and circled back to itself, the cinematography was great (as always), but there seemed to be something missing. Maybe with time this will change, but it was a bit of a slog to get through.

    A wonderful, wonderful film. Brings empathy, depth, and joy to a family and town that are often too easy to write off and ignore. And Willem Dafoe. MAN. Also, Brooklyn Prince constantly surprised me. And made me sob. This is a special film.
