    Dear Eleanor

    ★★

    This is so close to being the kind of roadtrip/coming of age film I have a soft spot for, it's almost maddening. All it would take is removing some of the dull, family-friendly touches and making smarter casting decisions.

  • Pitch Perfect 2

    Pitch Perfect 2

    ★★

    Yiikes @ some of the racist jokes. I remember liking the original Pitch Perfect but that was also freshman year of college, so maybe it used the same kind of humor and I just brushed it off. Regardless, this is another example of a sequel that didn't need to be made.

    The Imitation Game

    ★★

    Every time I stop and think about this film, I have to lower its rating half a star.

    I just can't fathom why someone decided to take the fascinating life story of Turing and turn it into this cliche sleeping-pill of a biopic.

  • Poltergeist

    Poltergeist

    ★★★★

    This shouldn't be scary anymore because of the way the effects have aged, but it still got under my skin. Probably because of the curse associated with the filming? Plus that f#cking clown doll. But at the end of the day, Poltergeist is just a really beautifully made movie. The final shot, for example, is a perfect ending.
