    The Disaster Artist

    ★★★★½

    This is a stunning achievement of a film, and Franco's performance might be the most impressive of the entire year (I usually hate these kinds of performances too). Such a warm, humanistic, loving film.

    Not giving this a rating since it is a 4 star experience watching a one-star movie.

    Watched at home and at a midnight screening on the same day.

    ★★★★★

    An excellent adventure fable. The least complex Laika film to date, but no less rewarding. Gorgeous animation and a well-crafted story. It feels huge while being intimate.

    The Autopsy of Jane Doe

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is a hard movie to rate. I enjoyed the procedural half of the film immensely, and while I had fun with the second half, its decent into the supernatural just wasn't as compelling. The tone is all over the place, and it is a tad more self-aware than it needs to be, but I was completely on board most of the way through.

    I think an entire film that was just an autopsy with some creepy shit going on…
