  • Lady Bird

    Lady Bird

    ★★★★½

    My reaction walking out of the theatre was the same as Lady Bird walking home after kissing Lucas Hedges.


    Every character, every scene, every emotional beat is so authentic that it feels as though every minute of Lady Bird is ripped straight from the teenage diary of Gerwig.

  • Justice League

    Justice League

    ★★½

    It's fine. The team dynamic is pretty fun. Gal Gadot is still wonderful. Barry as the kid brother of the team and Mamoa turning Aquaman into the lovechild of Khal Drogo and Roman Reigns are standouts.

    Certainly better than either of Snyder's previous outings in the DCEU, but at the same time stripped of anything that made those two films at the very least interesting, even if I found both to be train wrecks. Give me a full blown Snyder disaster over Snyder on autopilot as he is here. At least he's aiming at something in those cases.

    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    ★½

    "Me and the Black Stereotype and the Dying Girl Who Is Only Dying to Serve the Lead Character."

    Has a movie ever called attention to itself more? Between the "this isn't your typical teen movie (although the outdated clique stereotypes would disagree)" bullshit, the endless LOOK AT MY FILM KNOWLEDGE name dropping, or the absolutely fucking ridiculous and unnecessary camera gymnastics. It was non-stop flashy tricks from start to finish to mask the absolute drivel lying beneath.

    MVP to Brian Eno. He killed it.

  • Southpaw

    Southpaw

    ★★½

    My favorite part is when they stopped the film to show an Eminem music video.

    Jake is good. Fuqua is Fuqing not.
