    The Meyerowitz Stories

    ★★★★½

    Baumbach's best non-Gerwig film.
    Sandler's best performance ever.
    Stiller's best performance in over 15 years.
    Hoffman's best performance in 20 years.

    Also, as someone who used to watch student film festivals back in the day, I don't know that I've ever seen a better/funnier depiction of student films than Eliza's films here.

  • The Foreigner

    The Foreigner

    ★★★

    It has Jackie Chan setting traps, blowing up bombs, and doing stunts, and it has Pierce Brosnan chewing scenery in extreme close-up. This combination bare minimum requires a matinee viewing.

    In this theater, no one could hear me scream.

    In case you were wondering, this is still one the ugliest, most brainless, most unpleasant, and most fucking terrible movies made in your lifetime.
