    ★★★★

    Remember when nuclear war seemed like something that might happen because our leaders were too smart?

    Trancers II: The Return of Jack Deth

    ★★

    The main character’s name is still Jack Deth. I feel this was a very strong creative choice.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A movie, which, for all its excess in most other departments, is entirely devoid of characters. When you're spending this much money, you'd think some time would be spent on character development before the pre-viz budget starts hitting 50 million. Why not start at step one? Here's an exercise...

    What does each character want?

    Jyn: wants to... see her Dad again? I guess? Well, she does. And then... hey guys, spitballing, how about we pay emotional attention to the idea…

    Olaf's Frozen Adventure

    You can safely arrive at any screening of Coco 30 minutes late. This “short” film felt like it was three hours long.

    Also fuck Josh Gad and his terrifying, uncanny valley, completely bullshit enthusiasm voice. Fuck Olaf. Fuck his “frozen adventure”. Fuck life. This movie made me hate living it.
