    I, Tonya

    ★★★½

    Fun & jarring take on a bio pic that breaks the fourth wall to relieve some of the tension of the more unpleasant parts of Tonya Harding’s life. 

    The only odd thing is the use of music from the 70s & 80s but not the 90s when the film takes place...

  • History of the World: Part I

    History of the World: Part I

    ★★

    Doesn’t hold up as well as other Mel Brooks classics like Spaceballs or Young Frankenstein, but it’s fun to see classic comedians like Madeline Khan & Dom DeLuise being goofy.

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★★

    A delightful romp that's a refreshing throwback to the action buddy cop movies from the 80s... Set in the 70s!

    As always Ryan Gosling steals the show, in a cast where everyone was almost as good.

    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

    ★★

    Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was a beautiful living work of art with gorgeous cinematography and eye-watering fight sequences.

    Sword of Destiny feels like uninspired cash in on that movie's good name.

    at least there's a lot of action, though lack-luster and mundane action, to at least keep it somewhat watchable.
