    World's Greatest Dad

    ★★★★

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

    It has it's problems, mostly in tone, but it's focused enough on its characters to compensate. Absurdly hilarious.

    There's a part where after Robin Williams' son, Kyle, kills himself one of Kyle's friends tells Williams he doesn't understand because Kyle just "didn't seem that sad." This would have been sad just in the context of the movie. It was much more sad.

    Get Out

    ★★★★½

    Get Out is a really good movie. It's not as scary as I was hoping it would be. But it's more important than I ever thought a studio release coming from a first time director could be. This is not going to be a review of Get Out. Instead I'm going to try to explain how frustrated watching this movie with the audience I did made me.

    People talking during movies and providing unwanted commentary is something that annoys me.…

    The Fly

    ★★★★★

    Chilling, heart wrenching, and for the last 30 minutes downright horrifying. The Fly is a thriller/horror/sci-fi masterpiece.

    Everything works. The performances fit perfectly with the script, the special effects are vomit inducing, and it never feels weighed down due to it's short 90 minute runtime.

    I made the mistake of grabbing a snack around the 50 minute mark. Not a smart idea. Don't do it.
