    A Boy Called Christmas

    ★★★★

    This movie had everyone -- and was very cozy

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★½

    An utterly different tone than the original but manages to honestly be a decent enough sequel to that film. Up its own ass about "look how cool the ghostbusters props are" but that's kinda how Hollywood works these days. Enjoyable.

  • Ghostbusters II

    Ghostbusters II

    ★★★½

    A pale imitation of the original, but still enjoyable. The cast chemistry is great even if the dialog doesn't flow as well.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★★

    As far as a random surprise pick, wouldn't have been my first choice, but always a really fun time

  • Wayne's World

    Wayne's World

    ★★

    I think this is one of those things you just had to grow up with to find funny. Though the terminator 2 reference was good

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★½

    Full disclosure: I was only seeing this on opening night cause I'm on vacation and there's an alamo Drafthouse near where I'm staying -- the one near home shut down forever, so I took the opportunity to hit up the one here. Otherwise, I would have waited and gone to like....a weekend matinee like 3 weeks from now. 

    That being said, I'm really mixed on Eternals. It was VERY pretty, and had some legitimately good character interplay, and manages to…

  • LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales

    LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales

    ★★★½

    Cute, but felt a bit unfocused. Really slots right in to the Vader's Castle comics, which are also cute but unfocused. 

    The Wookiee's Paw short was the best though, a very good What If on ANH.

    I ain't afraid of no ghost

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★

    John is a good human and deserves the world. 

    Christ this one fucked me up emotionally though. Very good, but not something my heart can take revisiting.

  • The French Dispatch

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★

    Incredibly stylish and just a Fun Moviegoing Experience.

  • Take Shelter

    Take Shelter

    ★★★

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

    I knocked off a bit from what I would have rated until the ending. This was a way stronger movie for me until "oops he was actually right all along". Michael Shannon put in a really good performance as always. Some of the dialog felt needlessly cruel -- and I'm not sure if we were seeing Curtis' interpretation of conversations or objective reality of them.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★

    The first act was more of a Collection of Scenes than an actual film, and overall just felt too stiff and stuffy and weighty to be truly enjoyable. Dune was once described as "Star Wars for grownups", but this film is the child's view of grownups--stuffy and self important. 

    Pretty though.
