  • 5 Centimeters per Second

    5 Centimeters per Second

    The animation is great, the plot is not my thing.

  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy

    ★★★

    Respect to the film for acknowledging there is no easy answer (if any) to the seemingly intractable problem of addiction. Ya boy Timmy T and Steve Carell has convincing chemistry and both do good. 

    There are quite a few flaws for me. A major one is that several scenes had only muted emotional impact, even when I was engaged in the familial dynamics. This film worked better as father-son drama (but mostly abt the father) than as insight into addiction, a fact I think undermines the film, considering what the source material gave potential to.

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★★

    Go see this in IMAX because the visuals are amazing. Seems like DC stopped taking its films so self-seriously and Aquaman, as a result, is definitely entertaining (some scenes verge on being parody). But that aside, there is not much more to take away.
