    The Protector

    ★★★½

    Better than it had any right to be, while still dumb as fuck. Jackie Chan softly bops a cowboy hat and says “Welcome to New York”. It’s great.

  • Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé

    Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé

    ★★★★

    Good footage of an excellent performance, with maybe the most songs per minute of any concert film ever. It’s worth viewing solely to hear what it’s like to have a 40-peice live band interpolate five different songs at once - and sure you could just listen to the album for that, but the dancing is uniformly incredible.

    The Wicker Man

    ★★★½

    I’m glad to see that I am not alone in my surprise at how much of this movie is made up of musical numbers! 

    Even more shocking: all the songs are great, and there’s a character called The Salmon of Knowledge, so you can’t really hold a grudge at how messy and inconsequential the whole thing is.

    ★★

    Nineteen eighty-NINE, the number, another summer (shrunk DOWN!)
