    A Simple Favor

    ★★★½

    Had a good time with this one; Feig shot this like a big budget comedy and said it was because thrilling things happen in daylight but I can't help but wish someone would nudge him a little further down the stylistic rabbit hole.

    This almost gets there but then a gag will pop up that will get contradicted by plot or will be edited very improv-comedy-movie-y and it can feel... a little off.

    But otherwise I enjoyed this and thought…

    Ralph Breaks the Internet

    Disappointing compared to the original, but also like... fine? Unfortunately trades the fun world of the arcade for pretty bog standard internet jokes. The big Ralph made of Ralphs was neat.

    ★★★★★

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

    ★½

    Borderline insufferable and grating; starts to finally build satisfyingly in the final 10/15 minutes only to completely and totally whiff the ending.

    Shout out to the guy behind me who kept creepily whisper-talking "niiiiice" at any scene of violence.

    Wait, no. Fuck that guy.
