    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

    ★★★★½

    I gave all the LotR movies a 4.5/5 because they're all really good, but none of them necessarily pushed me into the realm of "wowowowow cool". Repeat viewings might, if only because I spent so much of these films pausing them and asking Mal questions. Still, a great series, a worthwhile watch, and one that holds up two decades later.

    Yeah. These films are 20 years old. We're all old now. I'm sorry.

    Overall I really enjoyed it, I loved the direction they went with it and thought it was really creative, but the climax of the film is waaaay too short and the ending was definitely not expected. That's sort of good,…

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★★★

    “A movie based on Sonic the Hedgehog” is a concept that feels destined to fail, but man... they did it! In a world of subpar licensed video game films, Sonic manages to stay true to his character and source material.

    The real star here is Jim Carrey, playing the role of eccentric evil genius Robotnik. Just an absolute joy every time he’s on screen, and a reminder of the ways he’s influenced my comedy since childhood. Perfect casting. Sonic’s VA is…
