    Cars 3

    ★★

    Cars 3 looked really nice and its mostly predictably platitudinous story worked sufficiently as a way to change the paint jobs on the characters so the same merchandise can be re-packaged again.

  • Beatriz at Dinner

    Beatriz at Dinner

    ★★

    First things first: this has the same screenwriter as the emoji movie.

    A friend said the emoji movie's ads scream "out of touch". I wouldn't go that extreme with Beatriz at Dinner but it's not especially effective as either social commentary or revenge fantasy, while trying to be both. Too bad, because every actor in it is on point.

    ★★★★

    I had a suspicion the trailer was lying to me when it depicted an eat-pray-love romantic-comedy-type Tuscan countryside romp.

    This is so much richer.

    ★★★★★

    Don't be fooled by the poster art, this is not the story of a boy befriending a magical whale carcass.

    Good to see a goddamned tragedy like this once in a while.
