    Maniac

    ★★★½

    The Good:
    - Emma Stone. Emma Stone. EMMA STONE. And, to a lesser extent, Justin, Sally, and Sonoya. But Emma = <3 <3 <3
    - Dan Romer's Jon Brion score. Don't showcase your inspirations TOO obviously, Cary.
    - The pitch-perfect final scene

    The Bad:

    Halloween

    ★★★★★

    The Good:
    - Jamie Lee + PJ Soles

    The Bad:

    The Ugly:

    The Takeaway:
    A classic. Horrifying villain. Loveable lead. And 80s icon, PJ Soles. Literally, all that is needed. An eternal thank you to Mr. Greer for introducing this to me in his high school film class.

    ★★★½

    The Good:

    - Agatha Christie by way of Quentin Tarantino
    - STOP MAKING ME CRY, JEFF BRIDGES

    The Bad:
    - Drew, you're repeating yourself. A lot.
    - Chris Hemsworth does not have a menacing bone in his body.

    The Takeaway:
    Those who obsess over Cabin in the Woods (or "Parks and Rec") will think it's perfectly fine.
