    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★½

    Admirable but frustratingly messy, even for a first-timer. Some great set-pieces and visual details, not to mention actual laughs (Cassius and Salvador's polite fight; the elevator key-code) but it's all spoilt by a plot with a non-existent attention span, ropey ADR work, and a try-hard ending that didn't land.

    Incredibles 2

    ★★★★

    There’s a fight sequence in this movie between a baby and a raccoon, and it was both more memorable and better choreographed than any I’ve ever seen in a Marvel/DC movie. 

    Also, the horns in Michael Giacchino’s score are worth the price of admission.

    The Descendants

    ★★★★½

    Me, for the first 5-10 minutes: This is sort of familiar and lightweight.
    Me, for the rest of the movie: This is wonderful, and shut up there's just something in my eye. In both of my eyes.

    I knew I was disappointed that I would never see LCD Soundsystem live, but now I'm fucking devastated.
