  • Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of

    Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of

    ★★★★★

    I suppose the only real surprise here is that it took me this long to succumb to this irresistible bundle of nostalgic feels.

  • Strike a Pose

    Strike a Pose

    ★★★★★

    Bless you, my sweet little cathartic cry fest.

  • Truman

    Truman

    ★★★★★

    I cannot not mention Ricardo Darin and Javier Cámara's stunningly beautiful chemistry: both their performances in this wryly funny heartbreaker are absolute perfection.

  • Frankenweenie

    Frankenweenie

    ★★★★★

    Frankenweenie probably has its flaws, but who cares about things like that when one can just fall in love with the utter adorableness that is Sparky instead.

  • Hail, Caesar!

    Hail, Caesar!

    ★★★★★

    Droll perfection.

  • The Hustler

    The Hustler

    ★★★★★

    The Hustler's stellar cast delivers across the board, but it's Piper Laurie who stands out for me, with her brilliant portrayal of the brokenly beautiful Sarah Packard.
