    Terminator: Dark Fate

    Takes a long-dead franchise and dumps big shovels of gravel on top. Looks terrible, even in IMAX. Not one decent action sequence in 2 hours plus. Special effects were somehow more impressive 30 years ago. There’s not one single moment any reasonable person could give a shit about.

    A Simple Plan

    ★★★★★

    Watched on a 35mm double bill with Fargo tonight at the New Beverly. The movies share many similarities, but differ wildly in tone. Fargo is perfect, nothing new to say about that. But A Simple Plan is... just as good? Can I say that? Slower and way sadder than the Coens’ joint, it leaves you feeling so bad it’s almost cleansing. Deserves a rediscovery. Amazing acting, especially from Paxton but especially especially from Thornton. Modern classic.
