    Mulan

    ★★★★½

    Mulan was one of my favorite movies growing up; I have fond memories of rewatching it countless times during my childhood. The launch of Disney+ gave me a good excuse to rewatch it for the first time in over ten years.

    You know when you rewatch a personally highly regarded childhood favorite and you end up disappointed since it's not as good as you remembered?

Still entertaining and a perfectly fine kids movie.

    Us

    ★★★★

    Very funny, thought-provoking and most of all thrilling, Us is a wild ride that never loses steam. Director Jordan Peele fluently mixes his signature comedy without ruining the suspense and the cast shines in their dual roles, especially Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke. Elizabeth Moss and Tim Heidecker don't have much to do, but their short screentime is handled excellently.

    Suspiria

    ★★★★

    Suspiria is a horror-thriller in a genre completely of its own. I don't think I've ever seen dance scenes as tense as these. The way Guadagnino directed and shot them and the way they're choreographed is phenomenal. Thom Yorke's score is sublime as well. Suspiria is an amazing cinematic experience and a must watch for fans of art house horror.
