    Gods and Monsters

    ★★★½

    There are definitely some cheesy and dated aspects to this, and it probably would have helped to have a bit more familiarity with James Whale himself prior to watching (the choppy flashbacks didn't feel particularly illuminating in that regard.) But the performances are great, particularly Brendan Fraser, who I don't think got enough chances to do things like this in his prime, and that smoothes over a lot of the bumps.

    ★★★

    Not quite as subversive a take on the material as I was hoping, but Liz and DIck are always fun to watch together.

    To the asshole at the 7:30 Angelika showing who could not stop giggling: if you can't be a fucking grown up, don't see grown up movies. That is all. This was wonderful, despite that one asshole.

    ★★★★

    Maybe the most devastating final shot of the year. But then I haven't seen The Road Chip yet.
