    Summer of 84

    ★★½

    Summer of 84 strives in its scenes of tension and horror, but fails in its moments of childhood nostalgia and friendship. Rich Sommer gives a memorable performance, leaving the audience uneasy. His performance expertly blends small town hospitality with necessary malice. Even though this film did not land for me, I am interested to see what directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell and writers Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith come up with next. Summer of 84 had potential, especially in its moments of tightly written horror and unease.

    Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

    Can someone take the happiest song scene and dub it with Lonely Island songs especially Incredible Thoughts or... Finest Girl.

    I think this might be my favorite Wes Anderson film. I think it has the best blend of style and substance of all his films. I love the story, characters, style, etc of this film. This is what got me to love Jason Schwartzman and I am so glad I saw this how ever many years ago it was when I saw it for the first time. I've seen it many times since and I come away loving it more…
