    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★★

    Very pretty, but unnecessary. For every change made that improves upon the version from '91 there is one that only serves to drag it down. It's just too similar to the original, and can't help but pale in comparison. It's still an enjoyable watch, and the production design is stellar, but I don't see why I would ever watch this again over the original.

    Light to Decent 6,out of 10.

  • The Bye Bye Man

    The Bye Bye Man

    Interesting premise, but takes itself way too seriously for how schlocky it is. The first half will bore you to tears and the second half will have you crying with laughter. Potentially great for riffing over with friends, otherwise don't bother. I hope Doug Jones got paid well for this at least.

    Light to Decent 2, out of 10.

    Dofus - Book I: Julith

    ★★★★

    The French studio Ankama is widely known for their MMORPGs Dofus and its sequel Wakfu. The latter of which got its own TV series produced in-house in the late 2000's to allow the game's creators to retain creative control. This series is how I was eventually introduced to the franchise, as its Kickstarter-backed English dub was brought to Netflix in 2014. Despite the dub being hit or miss at times, I found it hard not to be fascinated by all…

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    Arrival is my kind of movie. Atypical science fiction with a story that gets better the more you think about it. Fantastic performance by Amy Adams that will likely be considered one of the best of the year. I loved it and highly recommend you catch it as well, go in as blind as you can though.

    Light to Decent 9 out of 10.
