    Ocean's 8

    ★★

    I didn't even like the "original" Ocean's Eleven, Twelve or Thirteen. But I'll admit the first one had a certain charm and visual flair that made it entertaining in parts, even if it relied too heavily on the "hey, look how many celebrities we can cram into one feature"-aspect.

    This female-driven, but (for some strange reason) male-directed "soft reboot of something that was already a remake to begin with" is an unfunny, unexciting bore. I laughed once, and that was because of Anne Hathaway who is an absolute delight.

    Directed by Gary Ross

    The Guest

    ★★★½

    Rewatching this I felt like Ordell in Jackie Brown, talking to Robert De Niro (except De Niro is Adam Wingard in this scenario), "What the fuck happened to you, man? Shit, your ass used to be beautiful!"

    I can't believe this is from the same guy who later gave us abortions such as Blair Witch and Death Note.

    Directed by Adam Wingard

    "What's your superpower - cultural appropriation?"

    The funniest film I’ve ever seen at the cinema. Can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard.

    Directed by David Leitch
