    The Switch

    ★★½

    Unlike the Christmas film I watched on Tuesday before it, I didn't read the plot summary. So, I clicked Play on Netflix probably thinking it would be a film where Aniston and Bateman switched bodies. Somehow. I mean: she did do Bruce Almighty, I believe, with Jim Carrey. So, it was actually in the realm of possibility in my mind.

    Instead it's one of those I Did a Stupid Thing movies where the one person really needs the other person…

  • Cult of Chucky

    Cult of Chucky

    ★★★

    Introductory Addendum: Nica... what a name. Reminds me of the single most forgotten song in recent history. It's all I could think about for a solid 15 minutes of this. (I got up a couple times to make food. Don't judge.)

    At this point, these films can't be celebrated for killing or screwing over literally every character who isn't Chucky or Tiffany. It was refreshing in 2004's Seed of Chucky to watch this franchise's heart turn completely black and forever…

Friday the 13th had great pieces but really didn't come together to be the best it could be (though it's still a personal favorite and always will be).

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★

    #63 in my 99 90's Movies month.

    Excitement and danger come first, characters come second. Which is totally okay in Spielbergia. Though those kids are incredibly annoying at times. ("Vegiesaurus! Meatasaurus!" ...Really, movie?) And some of the drama is pretty seriously forced down your throat (Laura Dern before eating the ice cream, Attenborough's super-scream on the telephone, Jeff Goldblum... in general, that kid and the tree climbing, and the fence jumping). But it is exciting and it never did skimp on the danger, did it? Holds up surprisingly well. I probably never enjoyed it this much.
