    ★★★★

    "One of the tragedies of my life. Dogs don't seem to care for me. It's a sign of bad character."

    Always listen to the dog, Kate! If my dog doesn't like you, sorry, I'm just gonna assume you're a murderous industrialist intent on reshaping me in the image of the girl you liked who used to go with your superior-in-every-way brother so that you won't feel insecure for once in your miserable, rich life.

Chivalry in war, as in dating, is dead. What's noble about a drone strike? As a big fan of Don Quixote, this is about as good an adaptation as you'll find.

Detroit (the movie) is the cinematic equivalent of Ramsay Bolton from Game of Thrones; it luxuriates interminably in the depths of human depravity without ever arriving at a meaningful conclusion.

    ★½

    This is the last one of these fucking movies and you *still* don't see his penis. What the actual fuck? Dakota Johnson has been baring it all since the beginning, but all we get of Jamie Dornan is a hint of pubes. There's only one explanation for this not-so-kinky fuckery: Jamie Dornan has a bad dick.
