    Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

    ★★★½

    "She is beautiful, guileless, kind, and pure of heart. You are brilliant, ferocious, hilarious, and a grade A bitch. Together, you are the perfect woman."

    (Anyone else find that quote to be problematic? Maybe it's just me)

    I'm really appreciating this phase in Rebecca Hall's career where she is going all sexual, all the time. She is a real treasure in this movie, imbuing her character with progressive ideals effectively inhibited by a slight and unwanted conservativism. Luke is very…

    Ocean's 8

    ★★★

    "Do you want me to tell you how big a job it is?"

    Cate and Sandra have good chemistry. But why did Cate have so little to do?

    And Mindy was BARELY in this. The portioning of screentime was not done well (strange, considering the earlier films had more characters and everyone seemed to have an equal shake).

    But solid entertainment all around. A Soderbergh knock-off, but one done in loving detail. Anne Hathaway stole the movie; she honestly nailed it. Fizzy, fun, an imitation that still feels fresh.

    ★★★★★

    "You clearly love Sacramento."

    Just as effervescent, empathetic, light-on-its-feet, and human as it was the first time around. GAWD this movie is a gem.

    Literally every single character could be the center of his/her own film and I'm living for it. Give us your next one, Gerwig, NOW plz.

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★★

    "Piss off, ghost!"

    The retro stylings, color combos, Taika witticisms, completely unfiltered Jeff Goldblum-ness, and sheer FABULOUSITY of Miss Blanchett make this one a hard one to ignore, no? So thankful that Taika was able to inject some personality into the typical Marvel formula.

    Easily top three Marvel worthy, but all the movies kinda fluctuate between three and four stars, so that doesn't mean much. Still haven't enjoyed a classic of the genre yet.
