8/10 100% Frankenstein (1931) It's violent, tragic and exciting all at the same time and it has something to say about playing God and how we treat things we don't understand - rachelsreviews.net EDIT

4/10 84% Lamb (2021) Lamb is not scary in the slightest. In fact, every time they showed the human lamb baby it looked so ridiculous it took me out of the movie. It was too goofy - rachelsreviews.net EDIT

3/10 30% The Addams Family 2 (2021) They try but most of the jokes feel repetitive and lacking in any creativity. It all felt very bland. - rachelsreviews.net EDIT

2/10 71% The Middle Man (2021) It's hard for me to explain why I found this movie to be so irritating. Maybe it is because it is pretentious and dealing with topics like death and grief in such a trite way? Either way it was not for me. - rachelsreviews.net EDIT
