    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★★½

    A much-needed reminder in this toxic climate that there was once at least one person who loved us and knew we ourselves were capable of loving.

    ★★★

    A throwback to late 80s/early 90s action movies, Braven is Die Hard in a log cabin. Momoa lacks the charisma of Schwarzenegger, Willis or Swayze, but the action is serviceable and beautifully shot among the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. Decent supporting cast includes Garrett Dillahunt doing his usual creepy bad guy thing.

    ★★★★★

    Wow. Holy shit. That was like Full Metal Jacket: The Musical. J.K. Simmons is electric as a hard-ass Jazz band conductor and, while I didn't like his character, Miles Teller really puts it all out there as his ambitious, young student.

    ★★

    Kind of like John Wick, if John Wick were Amish and couldn't drive. Or shoot. Or fight, really. Not sure what the point was of the main character not being able to speak, aside from giving more lines to Paul Rudd, who makes this movie slightly bearable.
