    The Grinch

    ★½

    I am a How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) purist, so I did not enjoy this unnecessary added plot and characters, Benedict Cumberbatch's voice performance or Cindy Lou Who's characterization. 1 1/2 stars for the Scotland/screaming goat scene that made me laugh very loudly, and for the undying loyalty of Max the dog.

    What We Do in the Shadows

    ★★★★★

    By far, one of my favorite lines from this movie and perhaps all movies is
    "Leave me to do my dark bidding on the internet."
    "What are you bidding on?"
    "I am bidding on a table."
    That is very reflective of the comedic brilliance of this movie. I cannot think of anything that so perfectly masters satire and Monty-Python sensibilities. I love this movie. I went in with very high expectations because of Taika, but wow did it deliver. Excellent.

    ★★

    Sometimes, we must make the sacrifice and watch the terrible movies so we can appreciate the good ones that much more.
