    So Janis Ian was actually publicly gay 60 years before Mean Girls.

  • Juno

    Juno

    ★★½

    Between the script and the soundtrack, Juno tries so hard to be cute and quirky that it's mostly annoying in the end. 

    I can't get my head around the fact that Michael Cera has actually had a decent career. Also, needless to say, I'm definitely not the biggest fan of Jason Reitman. There is some very good acting from Bateman, Simmons and others, but I still can't understand the acclaim.

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★

    Disgusting, disturbing, distracting. 

    Sam Raimi's 1981 classic Evil Dead really, really deserves to be called horror. And it probably still remains as his most wonderful directorial achievement. 

    I don't even consider myself as a horror fan, but making a horror film this raw, wild and daring, without much false notes, certainly earns my respect.

    And that ending is just stunning. Wow.

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★

    After having the time to check the actor's name and eventually finding out the intriguing fact that he's deaf in real life too, I had to dedicate another review to praise the most heart-warming thing in Baby Driver.

    I am obviously talking about CJ Jones' brilliantly heartfelt performance as Baby's ever-so-caring and worrying foster father. Definitely amongst my favourite things in the film. So, well done CJ.
