Coco
Coco (2017)
8 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

People can be very sentimental when it comes to Pixar's early work, especially when comparing it to their recent stuff, but I'm not, which is why I can say confidently that Coco is the best movie Pixar has ever made. The animation and colors are beautiful, the exploration of culture is done well, and the narrative of death in a kid's movie is handled perfectly. Above all of that, however, is this film's incredibly creative and well thought out story. It's funny, clever, and equally as immersive as the visual spectacle that this film is.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
8 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Halfway through this film, I was ready to call it the best film of the year. Then the story started taking wild turns and got a little out of hand, but I will take a messy and original story over a clean and mundane one any day. The dialogue is well written, but it's McDormand and Harrelson's performances that carry this movie. It's dark, its funny and it has a really interesting premise. I am not sure how I would have concluded this unique story, but it seems neither did McDonagh. You just have to take the good with the bad when it comes to this one, and I'm okay with that.

Justice League
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I saw this movie for free. I'm glad I didn't buy a ticket because I couldn't buy Affleck as Batman, Mamoa as Aquaman, the Flash's one hundred failed attempts at comic relief, the weak and unimaginative villain, mixed tones or razor thin plot. It's a crime what DC is doing, rushing these films so they can force feed them to eager and ultimately disappointed fans. Things I liked about this film: One action sequence they did, one joke they made, and the fact that it is less than 2 hours long. Otherwise, the only justice served here is the fact that it won't break even at the box office.

I love great coming of age films, and this film is just that. Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are terrific in this funny, charming and grounded film about growing up a girl from a modest family discovering herself and aspiring to more than what is expected of her, and parents making hard sacrifices and letting go. The mother-daughter relationship is complex and portrayed as such, and the friendships seem real and fun. My only problem with the film is the pace, which seems rushed in the beginning and then slows down later. Otherwise, a great small-scale film that has a lot to say.

I'll preface this review by saying I am no fan of Stephen King, I find many elements of his stories random and borderline nonsensical, and this one is no exception. However, the screenplay, direction, and great performances from the kids, particularly Finn Wolfhard, help this movie float. Horror films need to be more than jump scares to be good, and this one is accompanied by a good moral of growth, facing your fears, and has a good amount of humor to make for a really good movie.
