    Brightburn

    ★½

    Some things this movie could have been:

    - A movie about superman but with more grief and anger

    - A movie with characters and humour

    - Teenage Superman x Dexter, where superman has a dark passenger and his parents have to teach him how to control it so he doesn't destroy the universe

    What we got instead:

    - The creepy child jump scare show, with superpowers and premeditated murder!

    **Extra half star for Badger's performance, that poor charismatic soul**

    How the West Was Won

    ★★

    One star for the impressive amount of production design, set pieces, and horses...and another star for the dvd mercifully breaking halfway through my viewing!

    ★★★★½

    Warning: Chungking Express will make you feel like you're in love.

    You’ll feel like not ordering what you always order at that restaurant you always go to.

    You’ll feel like eating expired canned goods.

    You’ll feel like talking to your stuffed animals.

    You’ll feel like jogging in the rain.

    You’ll feel like throwing up a little.

    You’ll feel like hanging out in lonely places, waiting for somebody who may never arrive.

    You’ll feel lonely.

    You’ll feel like love is just…

    Arrival

    ★★★½

    I, for one, welcome our heptapod overlords.

    Arrival hits all the beats of a great sci-fi story, but it doesn’t do much else. With a clear focus on story development instead of character development, there’s only so much that Amy Adams could have done to elevate the film with her solid performance. Her co-stars Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker were barely given niblets of dialogue but they used their screentime well enough. Arrival makes the same mistake as many sci-fi…
