    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★★★

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

    Pretty bland, but in about the way I expected. The human cast, Carrey aside, bring more or less nothing to the table. Carrey is having a blast making it though and that’s maybe the best part of the whole thing. I laughed more than I honestly expected, despite the entire plot being extremely rote and largely containing fewer consequences or explanations than even most other movies in a similar mould.

    The Villainess

    ★★★

    A couple of scenes with absolutely phenomenal choreography and camera work holding up an hour and a half of plot.

    The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    ★★★★

    Rewatching in honour of Han returning in F9, making some notes along the way;

    • The horizontally flipped car decals in the initial drift meet scene still bugs me a lot. There are a few of these through the movie and maybe it’s just that I’m watching in 4K now but they stick out
    • Everyone saying “yakooza”
    • I had completely forgotten or missed that they actually addressed Neela being (almost unbearably) Australian
    • I still love Shin’ichi Chiba…

  • The Music Man

    The Music Man

    ★★★★

    A con man enacts a psyop which would make the CIA weep on a sleepy rural town and somehow is not punished for this.
