Sing

If you’ve ever wondered what Zootopia would have been like if the creators cared half as much, your wishes have come true with Illumination’s Sing! The movie that takes everything you love… about 2009, puts a spit-polish on it, and serves it back to you in a microwave safe package.

Doctor Strange

Honky ass crackers aside, Doctor Strange in an immensely enjoyable addition to the MCU. A veritable kaleidoscope of weirdness and confidence shining a spotlight on a little known Marvel superhero and, from someone who knew very little about him until I watched this movie, allow me to say, it’s a pleasure to meet you, Doctor.

Wiener-Dog

Wiener-Dog is a pompous and pretentious cynical soul-crushing experience aiming to be art, but it accidentally becomes a target for some well-deserved scorn. This movie made me feel dirty all over.

Kubo and the Two Strings

It was the type of story where the direction it was going was never very clear and every event around every corner was a surprise. Some surprises made you smile, while others broke your heart. Kubo and the Two Strings respected its audience enough not to hold back its punches and allowed them to bring extra weight to the story.

Ratchet and Clank

Most of the time, I let movies marinate in my mind for an hour or two before I write a review for them. Heck, sometimes even longer than that! With Ratchet and Clank, though, I knew I had to write my review right away, not because I was excited to, but rather because I knew that, if I didn’t, I wasn’t going to remember a goddamn thing that happened in the movie.

Sausage Party

It’s as crude as you would expect and then, amazingly, gets cruder than you were expecting, culminating in an ending celebration of filth that is probably the most graphic display I have ever witnessed in a mainstream American movie.
