    Station Eleven

    ★★★★★

    Aware as I am of Patrick Somerville's other known series' this is my intro to his profound and thoughtful story telling. How to even begin to unpack the many layers of beauty and tragedy unfolded in this powerful non linear dystopian tale that really pays off. Oh and Mackenzie Davis!❤❤

  • Bo Burnham: Inside

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★★★½

    As I emerge from behind my rock where I had never heard of Bo Burnham, my wife filled the Mandela effect like gaps in turn of century internet stars; now I'm all in! The guy is a genius! How and what he did here is super important.

  • The Secret Life of Pets 2

    The Secret Life of Pets 2

    ★★

    This would be in my 2 yr old's top 4.

  • Ray Donovan: The Movie

    Ray Donovan: The Movie

    ★★★

    Wraps things up but it's not the most exciting 100 minutes for a so-called "movie".

  • The Wandering Earth

    The Wandering Earth

    ★★★½

    So corny yet so awesome; even without the dub, a visually stunning experience no matter how you slice it.

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★

    While I appreciate the attack on science and climate change deniers, I'm just bummed Adam McKay's stuff isn't funny anymore (sigh)

  • Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    ★★★½

    With negative reviews I wasn't expecting much, in this case for the better. Maybe it was the added enjoyment of finally convincing my wife to watch a movie, but we both enjoyed Afterlife; the new themes, the fewer call backs and the talented Mckenna Grace. We went in big Finn Wolfhard fans and left on the McKenna Grace train.

    Yes it could've been better.

  • Ghostbusters II

    Ghostbusters II

    ★★★

    Obviously below the ecto slime mark of the original but still entertaining.

  • Ghostbusters

    Ghostbusters

    ★★★★

    A pop culture behemoth rooted in Second City talents and tuned to one of the most catchy and controversial jingles ever. On-top of its unimaginable iconicness, the film was also well written and super funny with much of the chuckles levied from Bill Murray's silly repartee. Love love love this flick.

  • Sing 2

    Sing 2

    ★★★

    Our second annual take dad to the movies on his Birthday and the girls chose Sing 2.
    the sequel does an ok job at capturing the magic of its predecessor with great singing, funny lines and unbelievable animation, but the story and song choices were a little weak.

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★

    Top notch writing, jokes, action and effects; I just felt like not going in the Miles Morales and Spider Gwen spiderverse direction was a big mistake.
    Bringing back the Peter Parker's from OUR past seemed like a desperate gimmick that was unnecessary to a franchise that didn't need saving.
    I could hear the same type of unnecessary call back lines coming from auditorium 3 where the new Matrix was touting a similar kind of unoriginal cringe worthy drivel.
    I know I'm being a little harsh but this was a huge missed opportunity in my opinion.
