    The Hunchback of Notre Dame

    ★★★

    Each time I watch this I mentally fan-edit out the silly gargoyle comic relief and ach time I get closer to a great movie, I think.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★½

    Several, I want to say like five or six, sequences feel like they're throwing down the gauntlet. Truly impressive and engaging throughout.

    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!

  • Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

    Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation

    ★★★

    This has some pretty funny gags.
    I give it 3 giant blue pugs out of 5.
    Now Sony, will you please let Genndy make his Popeye movie?!
