    Girls Trip

    ★★★½

    Unabashedly funny and melodramatic in ways too many films are afraid to be.

  • The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom

    The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom

    ★★★½

    Harder-edged than most Hallmark channel fare, this fable doesn't try to do all that much, but what it does do, it mostly does well.

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★½

    Remember feeling frustrated by Captain America's awesome montage sequence, and wishing we could see it play it closer to real-time, or at least movie-time?
    Wonder Woman is that movie! The ratio of cool characters doing cool shit vs. "obligatory comic book mythology" is super high... But then the last act happens and nearly drowns the film, which had been one of the best superhero origin stories ever, in deadly dull monologues. ~15 minutes should've been trimmed from its 2h20m runtime. But see it - Diana is the absolute boss!

    My prehistoric man
    No psychoanalysis
    He never knew what made him tick
    He never paid, it seems, for telling his dreams
    Poor prehistoric Dick 🍆
