    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★

    A predictable story with some pointed criticism at our dependency on technology and the “power of family” stuff. Pretty mediocre from a writing and story standpoint.

    HOWEVER.

    It is VERY refreshing to watch a non-Pixar movie that makes some bold creative decisions, even if they don’t all pay off. There’s clearly some influence from the Lego Batman Movie, but I think from an animation standpoint, this movie takes some risks and experiments with the way an animated story can be told, and for that I really commend the effort!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I can see how Grace Kelly became a princess.

    Hitchcock’s use of the contrast between light and shadow is revolutionary. The scene where Thorwald smokes a cigarette in the dark and you see the embers go in and out: what a brilliant shot.

    WeWork: or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn

    ★★★

    This was a horror movie...the gradual erosion of personal identity is such a tough concept to both comprehend and accept. The final scene between Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Williams is just a MasterClass in acting. This deserves every acting accolade out there!

  • The Way Back

    The Way Back

    ★★★½

    A by-the-book sports drama led by an emotional performance from Ben Affleck, and is surprisingly (in a good way) less about the sport but more a story about grief and how we cope with it.
