    I'm the same way when someone's mean to my dog.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2


    Not as soaringly silly as the first one, and it takes half the movie to get into the main conflict, but I'm a sucker for any make-your-own-family narrative, so I ended up all in by the end. Yondu steals the show; no small feat when you've got Drax and Baby Groot to contend with.

    A still-fresh examination of toxic masculinity and how it's just as detrimental to men as to women. While it's understandable that the focus is on the two male protagonists, the actresses were so compelling I wish we could have had more than brief glimpses into their interior lives. Ann-Margaret in the tennis scene is a revelation.

    I'm still thinking about this film days after watching it, and I already want to watch it again. It's funny, scary, and has one of the best endings I've ever seen. And not just for a horror film, which are so often undone by their endings—it's one of the best endings to a film I've ever seen, period. I don't want to give too much away, but if you're a horror aficionado, you need to see it. If you're someone who appreciates great character development and/or chamber pieces in a more general way, you should see it, too. How about all y'all just see it, ok?
