    ★★½

    This was dull. Super generic, no characters or story beats to invest in and a plot line we've witnesses a thousand times before. I am sure someone thought the idea of mixing timelines and doing found footage was clever and would set the film apart, but it mostly just robs the film of any real suspense. And what we get in the end is extremely underwhelming.

    Toy Story 4

    The Lair of the White Worm

    ★★★½

    What a strange, strange movie. "The Lair of the White Worm" represents a mix of things that should NOT work together, but they kinda still do. Part English folk tale, part monster movie, part art film, part goofy low brow comedy. Add a big dose of provocative eroticism for good measure, and you are still nowhere near the craziness on display here. It's all very British, and only Ken Russell could really have made this. His handprints are all over…
