    Trouble with the Curve

    ★★★½

    It's predictable, sentimental and melodramic, but I really fucking enjoyed it.
    It was never boring, and I genuinely cared about these characters. This movie is really more of a family drama with baseball as the backdrop. It's almost a retort to Moneyball, but nowhere near as good.
    The ending was incredibly predictable, but equally satisfying.
    Clint is great as another cantankerous old man in what looks set to be his final on screen performance.

    Amy Adams shines, because of course she does <3

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★½

    Liked this a lot more on a rewatch! Originally I was let down by the ending, but now knowing what to expect I was able to focus more on the themes and the storytelling, and it really is fucking perfect.

    Jake Gyllenhaal not being nominated for this is the crime of the century, next to that other crime of the century back in 2014 if you know what I mean.

    This film is mental.

    Gets an extra star because McAvoy is fucking phenomenal.
