    Lady Bird

    ★★★★½

    One of the greatest debuts of all time, to be sure. 

    Gerwig isn’t changing the game here, but she delivers an absolutely perfect version of the type of film she’s made. Lady Bird wears its influences on its sleeve but, by the end, you have completely forgotten what they were because a combination of Ronan’s performance (one of the best of the year) and Gerwig’s word-perfect dialogue make it clear that the student has already surpassed the master(s) in terms of emotional storytelling.

    More like this one, please. 

    I wish there was a giant pile of records featuring Keith David singing Randy Newman songs.

    Toy Story 3

    ★★★★★

    Toy Story 3 came out on my eighteenth birthday. Like Andy, I had grown up and was heading off to college. So, upon seeing it, I took it like a man... and cried throughout the entire movie. It was the most emotional I have ever been. Not only is Toy Story 3 one of the best animated movies ever made. It actually changed my life.

    Not Another Teen Movie

    ★★★★½

    I continue to say this is one of the best parodies ever. I will forever fight for this movie to be recognized as a masterpiece.
