  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    ★½

    I would like to propose a national registry be created of people who should not be allowed within 500 feet of movie musicals and that James Corden’s name then be put at the top of that list. A truly cursed film.

  • Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise

    ★½

    If the Emily Gilmore quote, “I can’t spend any more time & energy on artifice & bullshit” were directed at a movie.

    I just don’t get how Disney turned one of their most beloved, charming, funny and personality filled attractions into THIS- a dumb, boring, visually incoherent, green screen eyesore. Moments work here and there but overall just exhausting.

    Hale County This Morning, This Evening

    ★½

    Movie: “Carrying twins now, Boosie careth not about the film”
     Me: 😒🔫


    Thrilled that some people loved this and some of the visuals are indeed beautiful but I thought Hale County was insufferably pretentious, languid and aimless; and this is coming from someone who wanted to give Rooney Mara an Oscar for eating a pie for 5 minutes.

  • Venom

    Venom

    ★½

    This weekend there’s a brilliant new film out about a toxic relationship slowly killing a man.

    There’s also a Star is Born.
