  1. I'm not changing my grade because I need to rewatch this fully paying attention to it, but it's definitely better than the credit I'm giving it. What fascinates me though is how the film for the first half hour is still clearly one of the better Disney Renaissance films thanks to strong characters and an intriguing setting, but once the Genie shows up, it becomes a totally different and more exciting movie in every sense, making it one of the absolute best Disney films ever. B
  2. released in mid september (features minor Shiverin' Gulch spoilers):
  3. sure but don't tell me we extended it, otherwise my productivity will go back down to 0
  4. Thoroughbreds is a fun little movie. The dark humor is refreshing in this era of feel-good indie comedy, and most of it hits strongly. Finley is clearly trying to say something about the wealth gap and how that causes the dehumanization of those poorer, but it’s not particularly revolutionary or interesting. This is all forgivable though thanks to the stylish camerawork and excellent performances. Taylor-Joy adds another great lead performance to her unique filmography and Yelchin’s final role really captures what made him such a treasure, making a small role really sing strongly. However, this is Cooke’s movie easily, commanding the screen every time she appears, making an incredibly compelling character even more nuanced with a powerful performance. Finley’s script, although lacking in depth, still is really enjoyable to follow, and it’s a flashy movie that’s impossible not to enjoy on some level. Thoroughbreds is a charming dark comedy that transcends its failed satire thanks to some excellent performances and a sharp script. A very good time. B+

  12. Annihilation is remarkable in how disappointing it is. It features terrible dialogue, a dull first eighty-minutes, and a true lack of strong visual identity. The much talked about final twenty minutes are indeed incredible, but they almost seem out of a totally different movie. Finally the film stops telling us what to think and just presents something bizarre that we must come to our conclusions on it. This is too late though, because by this point, it’s hard to care about anything that happens. On the technical side, the music fluctuates from good to feeling like a discount version of other similar scores, and the cinematography is average until those final twenty minutes. Garland’s direction falls in a similar spot, not being able to find any tension in a film that should be much more horror than the meandering mess it is. Leigh is the only actor who makes an impression, wasting a very strong ensemble in nothing roles, or, in Portman’s case, a role that has barely anything to it. Annihilation’s final act is incredible filmmaking, but everything that precedes it negates its power thanks to the cliché boredom of a generic sci-fi thriller with paper-thin characters and obvious themes. This isn’t a good movie. D+
