  • Raya and the Last Dragon

    Raya and the Last Dragon

    ★★★★

    Do you remember the day you figured out how to make the perfect PB&J? And from then on you knew exactly how much peanut butter to spread and your favorite brand of jam? You finally realized that crunchy was better than creamy and how to spread all the way to the crust. Sure, it was just a PB&J but it was yours and you now knew you would make it the same way for the rest of your life.

    Disney makes great PB&J's y'all and this is a stellar sandwich.

  • Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    ★★★★

    Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is like Austin Powers had twin babies with Spongebob but used SNL's Target lady as the surrogate mother.

    And yet somehow not only did I love it, I want it to be the new Ernest series and 15 years from now I want to be watching Slam Dunk Barb and Star and wondering how we got here while questioning my own taste.

    Wonder Boys

    ★★★★

    Sometimes all a movie needs to do to be amazing is just have a bunch of interesting characters do a bunch of interesting things.

    Womder Boys is a confident and fun journey that does that and adds a few surprises along the way.

  • Stalag 17

    Stalag 17

    ★★★½

    Nazi POW camps were hilarious!

    OK, so it took me a while to fall into this one because the tone seemed so disparate from the material. But once my brain allowed me to combine zany comedy with WWII, I found myself enjoying Wilder's wit and plotting.

    In the end it's another in the win column for BW and convinces me more than ever that I need to be see them all and be in the BIlly club.

  • In & of Itself

    In & of Itself

    ★★★★½

    To define this experience for you would be counter-productive in three very distinct ways.

    1) It would steal from you your ability to have and define your own experience.

    2) It would steal from this work the ability to define itself.

    3) It would steal from me my ability to enact my own experience and understanding in this moment.

    So I shall just say,

    1) Your time is valuable.

    2) This work will honor that value.

    3) I am changed.

  • Wonder Woman 1984

    Wonder Woman 1984

    ★★½

    Why does this feel like a Night at the Museum sequel? And why is this Night at the Museum sequel two and a half hours long? And if this Night at the Museum sequel really is set in 1984, why does it never once mention the Detroit Tigers and the amazing double play combination of Alan Trammel and Lou Whitaker?
