Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Jedi is an unexpectedly strong movie, bold and risk-taking, it carves its own path by deconstructing beloved character and spitting the bits back in our faces. The result is a movie that is smart, simple, and epic while being personal and warm.

Coco

Disney and Pixar’s Coco is, of course, a tremendous movie, both beautiful to look at and wonderful to experience. It’s a feast for the eyes, a joy for the soul, goddamn crushing in some moments, and actually had me, one of the most cynical bastards in the multiverse, shedding actual tears towards the end.

Justice League

Justice League probably deserved more… more time with its characters, more time to set things up, and, honestly, more goddamn superheros than just the six we got, but it’s perfectly passable and fun and, to be honest, fun and passable in the DC Cinematic Universe is an accomplishment in itself.

Cult of Chucky

That, to me, is the saving grace to the Chucky movies that they are deeply aware of how ridiculous and stupid that they are and they have all the fun they can have with it. I myself, in turn, am fully aware of how stupid and ridiculous they are as well and, thanks to this self-awareness, I’m laughing with them instead of at them.

The Mummy (2017)

The Mummy is back and rebooted! This time there is no goofy and likeable Brenden Frasier helping us slodge through a stupid action movie… now we have the stilted and unlikable Tom Cruise making the stupid action movie stretch on for ages.

It (2017)

It’s disturbing, well-acted, it’s got some neat scares, I liked the cast, and Bill Skarsgård does what many considered impossible… be a Pennywise every bit as memorable as Tim Curry, even if it’s for different reasons.
