    ★★★★½

    Maybe the most dismally enticing part about the world-building throughout ‘Her’, is the way this society is nearly unrecognizable, but mankind at an emotional level has hardly moved an inch. Somehow this culture is capable of building AI that’s (in every practical sense) indistinguishable from humankind, yet still find itself stuck in the same toxic relationship cycles.

    Umm. Er.. y’all ever heard the word poignant, because uhh. I don’t know exactly but I’d use it here.

    Blindspotting

    ★★★★½

    The themes and motifs available for showcase here are nearly boundless. Because 'Blindspotting' stands as a finger on the pulse of culture, it quite naturally comments on innumerable social issues and hot-button topics. Plus, it uses some wonderfully hand-crafted characters to tell it, and that's damn impressive.

    Highly recommendable.

    ★★★★½

    Donnie Darko called, he said you can have the award for “Most Unexpectedly Charming On-Screen Depiction of Schizophrenia and Other Mental Health Disorders’. Said he had his time but it’s your shtick now...

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    ★★★½

    Jesse Plemons could be cast as the lead in a Rebecca Black holiday biopic -- to be called "Black Friday", I rest my case -- and he'd still do no wrong.

    Winnie tha Bish saying "glass tables are acting weird tonight" was all that I needed out of 'Game Night'.
