    Encanto

    ★★★★

    I went back and forth between 3 1/2 and 4 stars, but this movie makes my heart too warm for a 7/10. And dear lord, the quality of animation and visual design is as good as any computer animated movie that I’ve ever seen. Add that to an a soundtrack that’s 90% hits and Encanto is enchanting.

  • Resurrection

    Resurrection

    ★★★½

    What a disturbing, nightmarish, twisted movie. This is as pure a psychological horror flick that I’ve seen since Black Swan, but where that movie ascended into beauty as it was descending into madness, Resurrection is a trip straight down. That’s less satisfying, for me, but boy is it a memorable ride. 

    Tim Roth is terrifying, here. And it’s not a matter of physicality, it’s the insanity that he speaks in such a mundane yet horrifying way. And someone please check on Rebecca Hall, after watching this and The Night House within 24 hours, I’m worried about her emotional well-being. I’m worried about my own, too.

    ★★★½

    "This is water. What I want is the ocean."

    Probably the most mature Pixar movie to date, with themes as complex and heavy as Up or Inside Out. This is the best looking 3D animated film I've ever seen, with both the fantastical and realistic settings looking amazing.

    Definitely see this appealing to older viewers, jazz fans, and people who have experienced wondering about their purpose, their spark. This is also some of the best African-American representation I've seen on…

    Opera

    ★★★½

    "He ties me up, touches me, makes me watch, but he never lets me see his face."

    This should be the happiest moment of Betty's life. She's finally gotten her big break as the lead in an opera, and the whole world is offering her acclaim. But she's also being stalked by a killer who repeatedly abducts her, ties her up, and forces her to watch him murder those close to her. Who is this man? Why is he so…
