    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★½

    "Kingsman The Golden Circle is a stark reminder of how bigger rarely means better. Sure, there’s more world building introduced. A new side of spies in this world we’ve never seen.

    Short Term 12

    ★★★★★

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
