    The Poseidon Adventure

    Awful.

  • Bird Box

    Bird Box

    ★★★

    Not very scary. Gimmick was pretty tortured. Sandra Bullock is a legend.

  • Widows

    Widows

    ★★★

    Weird. Horribly under-drawn characters, opaque motivation, a surprisingly abrupt climax. Somewhat compensated for by Viola Davis’s shoulders.

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite

    ★★★★

    Many rabbits. Terrific dance sequence.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★½

    This is a pretty terrible film in most respects (I’ve just realised that it was directed by Spike from Press Gang, which makes me sad). WTF is with Freddie’s teeth, for e.g. And Paul is a cartoon villain in a film that absolutely does not need a villain. 

    But! Glad to see Freddie’s life and music celebrated. Was nice to take the Teens to see it and to hear them afterwards worrying that their generation hasn’t produced any “epic” performers.

  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    ★★★★

    How had I not seen this? Incredibly gorgeous heartwarming loveliness. Kiwis forever.

  • Magnolia

    Magnolia

    ★★★½

    Can’t believe I hadn’t seen this before. Tom Cruise is quite something.

  • Tully

    Tully

    ★★★½

    Tears most likely explained by Aeroplane Emotions

  • Sorry to Bother You

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★

    Had to come all the way to BAM to see this, but it was worth it! Hashtag horse cock.

  • Crazy Rich Asians

    Crazy Rich Asians

    ★★★½

    Super-fun, lots of tears.

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    Extremely stressful. Very Spike Lee.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★

    Fun! Tom Cruise’s face is strange and he believes himself to be God! Excellent motorcycle things! How is it possible for somebody to be as handsome as Henry Cavill?
