    Wrong Turn

    ★★★

    Killer (sorry) concept and the group of hikers feels more real than most of their stereotypical counterparts in similar films. People still make dumb decisions and the movie cheats a little to gloss over them, but it's also doing the work of trying to make them into real characters in a genre that makes that really challenging. And it tries to do the same with the villains.

    It doesn't always succeed and it tries to pull more story out of the ending than is really there, but E for Effort.

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    ★★★★½

    Liked it a little better the second time with my expectations adjusted. It may not be as emotional for me as the previous ones, but by God it's fun.

    Chip an' Dale

    ★★★★

    I'm down for Chip and Dale making war on Donald. Not only does he deserve it, but unlike the boys' other classic nemesis Pluto, Donald is smart enough to make the battle interesting.

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Did not take enough tissues.

    I expected Endgame to complete the story begun in Infinity War (with of course references to earlier films). Did not expect it to complete the stories begun in Iron Man, First Avenger, and really the entire saga so far. It's deeply emotional and a satisfying conclusion in so many ways.
