    Malignant

    You may think you know what “Malignant” is before going in, but I can assure you that you do not. “Malignant” is a lot of things. It’s all at once pretty ridiculous, well filmed, disgusting, nonsensical, and intriguing. Director James Wan typically dips his toes into the psychological horror side of things, but with this, he goes full camp (or at least it seems like it).

    While We're Young

    ★★★★½

    Noah Baumbach manages to deliver quite possibly his best work since The Squid and the Whale, even though I've always found Greenberg to be super underrated. While We're Young is basically a coming of age story for middle aged people...sort of. The film pokes fun at middle aged people who are boring as well as 20 something hipsters while still managing to humanize both parties. Also, I love seeing Ben Stiller in these more toned down roles. It truly shows…
