    ★★★½

    Let down by some incredibly crappy CGI and some hammy acting, Cube still manages to be incredibly engaging, even if it doesn't quite make sense.

    ★★★½

    So bad it's good. It's an 80s ode to capitalism that has aged as well as champagne served in a shoe.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★

    This coming of age story feels a little anemic when it comes in the same year that gave us Ladybird.  Call Me By Your Name is a well made, but rambling movie that could have stood to lose 30 minutes.

    Best F(r)iends: Volume One

    ★★½

    Without having seen Vol 2, it's a little hard to say how successful this film is. The film is a surreal experience that feels like a 90s direct to video movie. There are some extremely amateurish elements, like the music being mixed in way too loud in relation to the dialogue. The film still feels like a workprint in many respects. 

    I was mostly entertained. Tommy certain brings his trademark personality to the table.
