    ★★★★½

    Strong horror thriller well crafted.  Lots of interesting observations, plot puzzles and ripe with provocative commentary.

    ★★½

    Scared the shot out of me that either of my kids might get into something so impossibly debilitating and addicting, which I found interesting but didn’t like this as a movie.  The performances seemed like capital A acting performances, the film making was earnest but I found myself distracted more thanoved or immersed by it.

    Love, Simon

    ★★★½

    So much fun to watch in a crowded theater with applause breaking out at all the right moments.  If John Hughes we’re alive and making movies and wanted to capture a story about a kid who is gay coming of age  I think it would be a lot like Love Simon.

    ★★★★½

    I’ve seen it twice now and like it more after a 2nd viewing and I liked it a lot the first time. Jessie Plemons, Rachel mcadams, Kyle chandler plus a bunch of performers I can’t name made this movie hilarious the whole way through.  It’s also surprisingly unpredictable for a movie that was so predictable.
