1.5/5 65% Victoria & Abdul (2017) Karim doesn't need to be a fierce anti-colonial advocate-that might be a bit of a historical jump-but to try and focus on their human connection absent of the conflicts of nation feels dishonest or irresponsible.‐ The Mary Sue

5/5 76% My Cousin Rachel (2017) As a mid-twentieth century writer revisiting the 19th century, du Maurier played with tropes and archetypes, and in this adaptation, Rachel Weisz as the title character is a sight to behold.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 42% The Bad Batch (2017) Despite an exciting premise that featured a Mad Max-esque lawless wasteland, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, and cannibalism with the director of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, the film was wholly underwhelming.‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 84% My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea (2017) With so much going on, this is a coming-of-age that doesn't really slow down.‐ The Mary Sue

3.5/5 83% The King (2017) With parallels to real-life scandals and offhanded references to moments like the June Democracy Movement... The King succeeds as a political drama invested in the constantly changing dynamics of power.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 73% Sing (2016) Despite having a star-filled cast and adorable animals I spent a great deal of the movie reminiscing about how much I enjoyed the animal world of Zootopia more.‐ The Mary Sue

2/5 57% The Neon Demon (2016) Pushing aside the earlier predatory male character in favor of a "women eat each other alive, but literally" story makes it fall short for me.‐ The Mary Sue

4/5 87% Ocean Waves (Umi ga kikoeru) (2016) I can understand this coming across as dull, but Ocean Waves' embrace of the everyday is really its strength.‐ The Mary Sue
