A well-made documentary about a dying mall, that is a more fascinating look at Alabamians than a treatise on American retail. It’s not the mall, it’s the people.
Uneven throughout. There are long sections where we wondered "Where's Annie?". Good performances and songs, but overstuffed and strange. Probably better on the stage.
Ponyo is missing that studio Ghibli spark. It had all of the elements, but it felt more like it was going through the motions. In it’s favor, it had the imaginative chaos of a child’s story.
It's fine. The animation style is hyper-textured, every surface is fuzzy or glittery. It's most impressive that it incorporates Troll dolls into a fairly cohesive jukebox musical.
A gory physic warfare horror film about identity and doubt, where one bleeds into the other, with incredible collateral damage. Lives up to the Cronenberg name.
The perfect concept for an action/adventure/thriller film. You can set up any set-piece and logic doesn't matter! Shoot baddies all day! Jet around the world! Movies are dreams, man! For a certain kind of movie, Nolan is hard to beat.

The principle performances are great, the last act is strong. It plays it broad at every opportunity and I never found it engaging.
Starts weak, ends stronger. Not all that funny. The dog is sweet. A pleasant enough diversion.
No surprises. CODA hits every emotional note there is. If it weren’t for the novelty of the situations I would have turned it off.
Offensive satire that is mostly on the right side the line, crossing it at times. Fun throughout with some great performances.
