  • Jingle All the Way

    Jingle All the Way

    ★★★

    So dumb, so entertaining. Christmas is here!

  • Minari

    Minari

    ★★★★

    This was oddly satisfying. Really beautiful and it stuck with me afterwards.

  • The Holiday

    The Holiday

    ★★

    Quite horrible. Cameron Diaz is just horrendous and the plot is so forced. I don't understand this one's classic status

  • The Family Man

    The Family Man

    ★★★

    A cute 'christmas carol' with the ever entertaining Nic Cage. Not bad if you'd like a christmas movie that isn't shown on flow tv every year.

  • Spider-Man: Far From Home

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

    ★★

    This is absolutely horrible and it doesn't get better the second time around. It's a silly teen flick with horrible jokes all around. Nobody acts naturally and it kinda destroys the gravitas of the universe that endgame created.

    The third act gets better. I really like seing peter being serious in the jet and actually showing that he is intelligent enough to take over from Tony. If the film was more spidey-action and less silly european archetypes I'd dig this.

  • The Santa Clause

    The Santa Clause

    ★★★

    Just the right amount of stupid. I live for the Neil character.

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    I really loved this when it came out but after viewing this 'far from home-tinted glasses' I realize how much the silly parts of the film are dragging the more serious moments down. Tom Holland really has the capacity to be the perfect spider-man and in scenes like the one where is held down by the building or the one where he rescues Toomes he is straight out amazing. He brings the proper amount of gravitas while keeping it fairly lighthearted. I really want a spider-man film done in a less childish manner where every tense moment isn't punctured by comic relief.

  • The Fugitive

    The Fugitive

    ★★★½

    A charming cat-n-mouse chase film.

  • Batman: Assault on Arkham

    Batman: Assault on Arkham

    ★★★

    Quite good. I missed someone to really root for but I never did love the Suicide Squad for the same reason. One of the better dc films.

  • Ghostbusters

    Ghostbusters

    ★★

    I haven't watched this since my childhood and I couldn't remember much. Without nostalgia-tinted glasses it is honestly just a bad and very weird film. Nobody reacts at all to actual factual ghosts. Everybody is calm and do really weird stuff without talking about it at all.
    It does have a weird charm but I had a really hard time believing anything in the movie because nobody acts like real people.

  • Ex Machina

    Ex Machina

    ★★★★½

    This is nothing shy of a masterpiece. As a sci-fi film It ponders over AI rights to life and man as 'god' like the best of them. As a thriller It subverts expectations in the best way.

  • The Tomorrow War

    The Tomorrow War

    ★★★

    This is so much better than it looks at first glance. It's basicly Terminator meets Starship Troopers and I'm kinda into that.
    There are some sucky kliché things in it, and especially the third act is quite forced. A highschool student has to give professional scientists advice for god's sake.

    The monster design is cool, the plot idea is funky and funny even if not that original. The acting is kinda good and I personally liked Chris Pratt more than…
