  • Streets of Fire

    Streets of Fire

    ★★★★½

    On paper, Streets of Fire sounds like a cheesy dud. But bring in Walter Hill and you have an energetic, fun, gritty, compelling, culty near masterpiece. This film has no business being this much fun.

  • I, Tonya

    I, Tonya

    ★★★½

    I, Tonya is very funny and thoroughly entertaining. The characters and performances are all very effective, but I wish the direction wasn't as diverting as it was. I think Gillespie's instincts are correct and his choices do suit the story, it just REALLY feels like he's trying to make his Goodfellas, and that REALLY distracts from his work.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★

    Charming and fun who-dunnit. The usual attention to detail, offbeat humor, and quirky Anderson style are all there. Mixed with interesting animation, period jumping, and aspect ratio tinkering, this is a great watch.

  • Skyfall

    Skyfall

    ★★★★½

    Works as a spy film, action film, revenge film, and siege film. Does a good job at taking relatively small stakes (for a Bond film), and blowing them up on a grander scale. So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
