    ★★★★½

    A near-seamless fusion of traditional scripted buddy comedy and non-scripted hidden-camera pranks, Bad Trip is without question one of the best and most side-splittingly hilarious films of the year, and it wouldn't have been nearly as funny if not for the jaw-droppingly bugnuts manic energy that co-writer/star Eric André and director Kitao Sakurai bring to the table.

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
