    Enter the Fat Dragon

    ★★★½

    This movie is basically a Mission: Impossible movie in which Donnie Yen, as the Ethan Hunt of the scenario, is a hero, but his coworkers hate the amount of trouble he causes and his famous actress fiancé dumps him because he’s a workaholic. He spends six months in a depressive episode eating junk and watching Bruce Lee movies. This informs a third act that involves Extra-Thicc Donnie Yen parkouring through a Tokyo neighborhood set, high-kicking the shit out of nameless baddies. I enjoyed it very much.

    Color Out of Space

    ★★★½

    This is like a Terrance Malick movie, but the most fucked up, violent, weird possible version. Yes, that means Richard Stanley is Cosmic Horror Terrance Malick. I fucking said it.

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    Things that are great about MIDSOMMAR:

    1. Florence Pugh.
    2. Henrik Svensson's next-level production design.
    3. Pawel Pogorzelski's slow, steady camera that lulls you into a state of calm.
    4. Ari Aster meditating intensely about trauma and loss in the most fucked up ways.

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★★½

    Here’s the thing... Audible horror is my kryptonite. A QUIET PLACE is the MOST audible horror movie I’ve ever seen. Emotionally, I’m spent. Intellectually, I recognize that this movie fucking rules. Krasinski, Blunt, the kids, all top notch.
