    Friends: The Reunion

    ★★★½

    Come on Letterboxd, this is a film now?

    I enjoyed it, though I didn't care for the filler material with random fans or James Corden, they could have picked someone who also experienced fame in the same era who could ask better questions.

    I grew up on Friends. What people who think people who watch Friends have no taste don't get, is that our taste was defined by Friends. We were children. For a certain group, it's going to be unavoidably nostalgia-packed and emotional to bring these guys back together. That's it.

  • Roald Dahl's The Witches

    Plane film #2. I was completely on-board for the first twenty minutes or so, with the great soundtrack and 1960s setting and orphan story, and Octavia Spencer. But this falls apart very quickly, and eventually just becomes embarrassingly bad.
