    A really depressing Thanksgiving movie, anyone?

    Even though Licorice Pizza may not be as structurally cohesive and driven as I hoped, it is still so lovely and enjoyable. Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman are fantastic, the setting is beautiful, the movie is charming and funny, with an almost dream-like quality to it. Paul Thomas Anderson’s version of the San Fernando Valley feels like a place he has a lot of affection for - it actually feels like time-travelling to California in the 70s, and he sweeps you off your feet as he takes you on this adventure.

    As a Sorkin fan, I hate saying this, but I was disappointed by Being the Ricardos. While it's not awful, it just felt so bland, and even the dialogue (which is, of course, the one thing I felt like I could rely on with Sorkin) seemed strangely uninspired, aside from a few select scenes. The film is really elevated by the performances, and all the heavy lifting done by the actors and their charisma is the only reason why I'm…

    I can't resist a good noir, and at the moment I need ALL of the Nightmare Alley things in my life. I was skeptical about this one, I'm not going to lie, but it turned out to be a great adaptation of the novel and a beautifully done film.

    Tyrone Power is the perfect Stan, and he actually makes him more likable than he is in the original novel or in del Toro's adaptation. Coleen Gray as Molly is absolutely…

    This one actually felt very exploitative to me. If you're looking for something to put the events of this case in a timeline - I guess, this documentary does a decent job. But that's all it does. It takes existing footage and arranges it in a specific order. It doesn't attempt to explore the reasoning. It doesn't attempt to uncover something you can't already learn from a simple Google search. It doesn't give it any kind of perspective. All it…

    OK, so first of all, Willem Dafoe is great in this.
    Second, the color palette and the way Sean Baker makes the ugliness of the world look almost whimsical is also great from the aesthetic perspective.

    But...

    Did I watch the same movie everyone else did? Because, apparently, everyone watched some magical, wonderful, best movie of the year about "real people" and "real childhood". I watched a movie about some the most obnoxious kids and adults/parents I've ever seen on…
