"While on its face, Colossal seems to be an offbeat, if slightly dark comedy about giant monsters, that’s only a small part of the larger work. The kaiju side of things serves as a sweet, enticing hook for a thorny but hypnotic drama where nobody is truly a protagonist or an antagonist. The flawed characters at the heart of the film are in many ways as monstrous as their titanic counterparts, but like every monster, there’s more humanity in them than we care to admit. Vigalondo may have made the most soulful film about gigantic, metropolis-smashing monsters yet."

"This new Ghost isn’t as opaque as the original, but it also isn’t as complex. It has a lot of intriguing ideas, but it doesn’t always commit to fully exploring them. While the visuals are gorgeous, the action scenes exciting, and the overall aesthetic almost beyond reproach, it lacks some of the hypnotically-ambiguous humanity that made the original so compelling. There’s perhaps a bit too much shell and not enough ghost here, but what a dazzling shell it is."

"Power Rangers sets forth with a dangerous mission of recreating the thrill of the original series while also trying to modernize the franchise for a relatively more cynical adult audience. That it succeeds even part of the time is probably a testament to the dedication of the cast and crew. It's breezy and charming almost in spite of itself, even when it hits every origin-story cliche it possibly can, and it doesn’t apologize for its flaws as much as it races over them to get to the next distraction. So maybe it’s a perfect adaptation after all."

"If the original film was a tale as old as time, this new version is a tale as old as nostalgia. But at least it’s a charming, joyous nostalgia, and that has to amount to something. This Beauty may not be the most wonderful guest you could invite to your table, but at least it’s enjoyable while it’s there."

“Raw, stripped-down, and vulnerable, [Logan is] a razor-sharp, surprisingly effective study of characters we thought we knew well. If this truly is the last time we’ll see Jackman and Stewart as Logan and Xavier, there could be no better finale than this.”

This is me being productive today. I've been playing the Buffy game on PS2 lately, and I've been thinking about a Buffyverse story set post-season 7 that I've always had in my head involving a Japanese-American Slayer whose Watcher happens to be her older sister. I was listening to this song the other day and realized that it would make a great theme song to a TV series of that story.

So I edited over 2 minutes out of the song and this is what you get. Good to see that my editing muscles haven't gone to waste.

"[Wellness is] an infuriating, muddled mess that feels like a rough draft of the sleek, streamlined, nerve-damaging horror film it should have been. In it’s desperate attempt to shock, it’s sick and twisted in all the wrong ways."

Tonight was a wonderful celebration of the life of an exceedingly beautiful, creative, generous woman that I was honored to call my friend, my mentor, and my inspiration. Rest well, Mia. You are loved by us all. #miamalonejennings
