    The Spectacular Now

    ★★★½

    Jennifer Jason Leigh is the cutest mom. Everyone in this movie is cute, Bob Odenkirk, Kyle Chandler, all of them. Cute stuff.

    It's usually a cliché to say a couple in a romance movie has great chemistry, but Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller really do. They manage to make even their corny and uncomfortable moments enjoyable. Brie Larson plays a high schooler, and it works. Lots of things that don't work in other movies just work here. I guess that's the blessing of A24. And look at what they've become.

    Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father

    ★★★★

    The most frightening film I have ever seen. It goes exactly where you pray it doesn't. I wish I watched it during daytime. 
    But when it isn't so blood-curdling, it's impossible not to love. Also, a great reminder that the U.S. justice system is still wholly incompetent.

    Tully

    ★★★★

    "I'm not afraid of the future."
    "You should be."

    Watching Charlize breakdown over her annoying ass children gave me a whole lot of anxiety and sympathy, neither of which were expected, and reaffirmed my desire to never have children.

    Confidently and impressively directed and edited, with a surprising amount of visual flair. Mackenzie Davis is incredibly charming, a perfect contrast to Theron's raggedness. Oh, and there's an all too brief montage of Cyndi Lauper songs.

    In many ways, this year's…

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★

    This is what it's like living with anxiety.

    Like a great survival video game (à la The Last of Us), this has the adrenaline and excitement that should be present in its moments of action, as well as the emotional beats that come with rescuing a loved one, or discovering a hidden waterfall loud enough to hide you from the omnipresent monsters. In other words, the direction is simply great.

    I'm not convinced that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt could ever have quiet sex, though.
