  • Happy Gilmore

    Happy Gilmore

    ★★½

    Happy Gilmore works as a slapstick comedy to put on TV for a relaxing afternoon. Wasn't expecting myself to end up warming up to an Adam Sandler comedy, and that's mostly because of the first 10 minutes (which were predictably shit), but I have to admit, it does get better. A lot of the jokes don't land for me, but there's a few that made me laugh out loud and I overall had a fine time. A lot holds this…

    The House on Sorority Row

    ★½

    There's nothing like putting on an 80s slasher flick with your mom while you both eat ice cream, but it's a bit unfortunate to end up watching The House on Sorority Row.

    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★

    I find myself sympathizing a lot with the happiness of kids and their emotional struggles. There's joy that I can't find elsewhere when I see a child's face light up when opening a gift. Toys R Us closing down was a pretty rough thing for me to see go, it being a place filled with said joy and lovely memories. Won't You Be My Neighbor? captures that unique feeling, as well as love, which was shockingly powerful. The film is very sweet and I had a comfy time with Mr. Roger's philosophy.

  • Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★½

    Gonna start this off by saying that as someone who was excited for this simply because of the female superhero, I'm massively disappointed. There's nothing interesting to say about Ant-Man and the Wasp, because the film has nothing to say. Some may refer to this as the filler episode of this franchise, and while that's pretty accurate, this isn't as fun as a filler can be. It's instead a generic superhero movie where there's not much for anyone to get…
