    DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games

    ★★★

    These animated flicks get my kids more interested in DC characters more than their recent live action stuff ever does.Some pretty good twists and turns with this one, definitely a fun watch.

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★½

    Underwhelming and unsatisfying, Alien: Covenant throws the mysticism and originality of Prometheus straight out the airlock, trying to please everyone and no one at the same time. It really pisses me off that this is one of the reasons we're not getting a true Aliens sequel from Neil Blomkamp.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★½

    As much as I love The Life Aquatic and The Fantastic Mr. Fox, this is easily Anderson's masterwork. Every single frame is so perfectly composed it's easy to lose yourself in this endlessly charming and entertaining film. It doesn't stick the landing in the end as much as I would have liked but that's hardly a slight against the film as a whole, this is a damn near perfect experience.

    ★★★★★

    Jake Glyllenhaal is a creepy sonofabitch in this excellent tale of the cutthroat world of freelance crime scene footage. Awesome cinematography and a real sense of atmosphere elevate this to the next rung.
