    Tenet

    ★★★

    I wish Christopher Nolan could just admit he made a dope action movie instead of presenting it as some chef-d'oeuvre.

    -.5 points for godawful sound mixing.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    ★★★½

    Does satire need to have an overarching point? I'm genuinely asking, because despite some truly excellent lines scorching the libs and alt-right alike, The Hunt's main critique boils down to "everyone's conceited and hypocritical."

    That said, I enjoyed the hell out of this movie. While silly, this umpteenth take on The Most Dangerous Game execute its premise well and adds some original twists. Betty Giplin proves that she can be a goddamn movie star with a measured dry performance as the badass Crystal.

    It's no Verhoeven. Hell, it's not even American Dreamz, but it still might be worth your Friday night.

    Samara Weaving KILLED it.

    Lots of fun-- I think horror comedies just pair so well with the weekend.

    No teenager is this thoughtful and respectful, especially after begrudgingly moving across the country.

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★

    I KNEW this movie was going to delicately introduce large philosophical questions and force me to confront them in an emotionally-dense, but ultimately rewarding way, and I still wasn't ready.

    Very good.

  • Broadcast News

    Broadcast News

    ★★

    Everyone sucks and has awful hair. Maybe if I was a media type (or wanted to be) I'd dig this, but it screams of journalistic self-importance. Just because the setting is the news doesn't mean all the office drama is automatically interesting or important.

    While the plot circled a point about flash and entertainment super-ceding the actual story when it comes to broadcast news, the examples chosen to illustrate their case fell flat.

    How dare this faux rom com take over 2 hours of my time.

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas

    ★★

    Nothing like rewatching a movie you saw once when you were 7.

    I'm not a fan of Jim Carey or this performance but even I felt for The Grinch-- The Whos are a horrible people and Whoville is a terrifying dystopian nightmare. Not a single right angle in sight! I'd torture them too.
