    HAPPIER THAN EVER: A LOVE LETTER (2021) Yeah, this is cool as fuck. It’s a filmed live concert to no audience where Billie performs her best album from front to back with the help of her brother and t...

    THE SUICIDE SQUAD (2021) I find it really worth mentioning how remarkably unfunny this movie was. The jokes got maybe two or three laughs out of the audience I saw this with (on opening day, mind you)...

    THE PINK PANTHER (2006) The quotes I pulled from this movie when I was younger have been seared in my memory. I’ve been saying “good one” in a French accent for 15 years, and honestly, I probably freq...

    THE MITCHELLS VS. THE MACHINES (2021) This was funny and inventive and engaging and moving and charming and poignant and plenty interesting enough to hold my attention for the length of a feature film...

    GODZILLA VS. KONG (2021) A good job was done making us empathize with Kong early on, especially through his relationship with Jia (Kaylee Hotle stands out like the sun among this star-studded cast). H...
