    Some Kind of Wonderful

    ★★★

    Hits many of the same notes as the other pictures born from the John Hughes school of filmmaking, but lacks the delicate humor and grace that makes the good ones so very special. Eric Stoltz's performance is a little too affected, the plot offers even fewer surprises than is normal for the genre, and the trademarked Hughes sincerity provided by the screenplay feels more canned and improbable that it does elsewhere.

    Clue

    ★★★½

    Wadsworth:
    He was your second husband. Your first husband also disappeared.

    Mrs. White:
    But that was his job. He was an illusionist.

    Wadsworth:
    But he never reappeared.

    Mrs. White:
    He wasn't a very good illusionist.

    Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

    ★★

    While Cowspiracy is an illuminating look at the growing impracticality of animal agriculture, it’s ultimately an unskilled documentary built on a foundation of questionable statistics and a protracted sermon about the benefits of veganism. The abolishment of livestock may very well become necessary in the near future, but I can’t imagine it’s the magic bullet Cowspiracy would have you believe it to be.
