    Thor: Ragnarok

    I gave this one star and it belongs to Tessa Thompson. She was the only beacon in this otherwise superlame, awkward movie, and manages to outshines Jeff Goldblum, Cate Blanchett, and Taika Watiti. I don't know what level of high people are on to think this was funny but I can't think of one scene that was chuckle-snort funny, let alone rotflmao funny. Chris and Tom were honestly so good in the first two movies with all of its Shakespearean sassiness and here are they are cardboard cut-outs masking as caricatures. Honestly, Thor never reached his fullest potential, and that's so disappointing.

I wish some of sequences were cut down (because Marvel never quite has enough to fill two hours every single movie) and that some of the supporting characters like Zendaya were underused but this is still a fun movie.

The cast is wonderful - especially the dynamic between Paul, Michael, and Evangeline (it's increasingly disappointing how fans don't recognize female characters outside of Peggy and Black Widow - Jane,…

    Where the Wild Things Are

    ★★½

    Visually the film delivers on so many levels as well as the soundtrack. And, I appreciate Jonze's loose cinematography, but the imbalance of the layered story and its expression made me continually frustrated and unfulfilled. Max's escapism is as complicated and morose as his real life. What might've felt like a kid going into his backyard and dreaming up animals and places to get away from home - something we've all done growing up - becomes more of a kid…
