74% Cruella (2021) Swaying between outlandish and expected, the movie ultimately feels like a clumsy compromise. Still, with grimy whimsy, crackling leading ladies, imaginative twists, and plenty of eye-popping spectacle, Cruella is a hell of a good time. - IGN Movies EDIT

79% Benny Loves You (2021) Benny Loves You is not good. It's simple, stupid, full of grisly gore, and ludicrous gags. Which is to say, it's a pretty good Midnight Movie watch, the kind of thing best appreciated when you're burned out, buzzed, or flat-out high. - Pajiba EDIT

8/10 49% Monday (2021) Romance is often gussied up with noble heroes, dastardly villains, slapstick shenanigans, or MPAA-taunting eroticism. Monday rejects all of these adornments and is nonetheless a stunner. - IGN Movies EDIT

D+ 74% WeWork: or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn (2021) Rothstein effectively lays out the timeline of WeWork's meteoric rise and calamitous fall, but doesn't fill in the gaps with anything near as rich as a "$47 billion unicorn" premise suggests - Crooked Marquee EDIT
