Kiki's Delivery Service


A Hayao Miyazaki film is always a beautiful thing to watch (or rewatch) on the big screen.

It's a good thing I knew what I was in for, though, or I might have walked out during the super-crappy "GKIDS Mini-Fest" animated shorts that played out before the film.

The Big Sick



So much to like here, so many great characters and relationships--in fact, the most unlikable person in the whole film is the title character: Big Sick, herself.

Such an unsympathetic, self-centered spewer of misery is Big Sick--in all stages of health--that we must finally realize our protagonist is a big dope for continuing to see her as a life's goal rather than a fate to avoid.

Girls Trip



So foul, I had to look away from the screen at one point.

So wall-to-wall hilarious, I had to peek to make sure I wasn't going to miss anything.

Spider-Man: Homecoming



Fun film, with just the right light tone that comes as a surprise in the bigger MCU.

I thought Robert Downey Junior would be the worst part of the flick, but I was wrong: that owner goes to the always-dependable-for-this Gwyneth Paltrow.

The Wedding Plan


It’s billed as a comedy, but while it’s certainly interesting enough, I don’t see what’s comedic about it (the main character is clearly unhinged—in a tragic way-- and every other character seems to agree).

Is the comedy supposed to come from the fact that she dresses just like Dustin Hoffman in “Tootsie?”

Churchill


It's okay enough, I suppose, if you're really, absolutely into this stuff.

Me, I'm just relieved they didn't cast John Lithgow as Churchill.

Wonder Woman


Suuuuuch a vast improvement on the other DCU entries, but do you know what this movie needs?

This movie desperately needs a Stan Lee cameo.
