    ★★★★½

    Watching Flee in March 2022 highlights the bizarre historical bookends of Russia’s relationship with McDonald’s.

    I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say Amin stands with Ukraine.

    You are bound to disappoint people when you try to remake The Three Amigos and you cast Kevin Spacey as El Guapo.

    We were gonna watch Ratatouille again for family movie night, then my wife made one of the most regrettable suggestions imaginable…

    What resulted was a bellyflop into an utterly bizarre universe, which was almost unwatchable with crude humor that I can’t imagine lands with any audience. The third act was stronger, but, they really made like 4 of these? I’d prefer a super cut of the old chevron ads.

  • Rio Bravo

    Rio Bravo

    ★★★½

    This was not at all what I was expecting. It was much more contained than a western named after a river, no sweeping vistas or grand adventures. I realize how unfair it is to hold this against a perfectly fine movie that was engaging and fun, but it doesn’t feel like it has as much canonical footing as westerns I hold in higher esteem. It was not as iconic as The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. It didn’t have as much…
