    Pokémon Detective Pikachu

    ★★½

    No part of this even remotely resembles a good movie but some of the Pokemon are really cute and you can never underestimate just how important that is

    The Souvenir

    ★★

    Interminably boring and a massive chore to sit through. This may be a very personal film, but it’s personal to a fault. It’s overly internalized and obfuscated, presented in the most drab of ways and lacking any reasonable justification for its disjointed, distancing nature. The two leads are great, but there needs to be considerably more behind the characters and relationship - otherwise it’s just watching an unpleasant, toxic relationship be unpleasant and toxic. There’s absolutely nothing here distinguishing this from the rest of those *artsy films about art* with terrible men at their center. Enough already.

    GRADE: C

  • I, Tonya

    I, Tonya

    ★★★½

    There's a scene where Tonya's voiceover says "I was 15" and then we see full grown Margot Robbie and it's probably the funniest moment in 2017 cinema.

  • First Reformed

    First Reformed

    ★★★★

    Ethan Hawke straight up devoured every other Best Actor nominee and contender and now has to watch one of them win an Oscar. No wonder he spends the entire movie wondering what the hell is wrong with the world
