    Isn't It Romantic

    ★★½

    This is...fine? Some genuinely funny moments shoved into a movie that feels like a first draft. Wilson could be a great slapstick comedian if she’d partner with a good writer and director. Just watch THEY CAME TOGETHER or CRAZY EX-GF’s “I’m Almost Over You" instead.

    ★★★★½

    Directed by Steven Soderbergh, written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, and starring André Holland, Netflix's latest release is a riveting sports drama titled High Flying Bird. But it's more than just the tale of a sports agent trying to disrupt the business during an NBA lockout; it's a tale that prioritizes characters who are black, who are women, and who are queer, reclaiming what those in power are trying to stop them from having.

    It's a film full of fast dialogue…

    ★★

    English teachers everywhere are gonna bust a nut when this hits home video because it’s an absolute wet dream of a “movie to show to my class that deals with Serious Issues in a non-confrontational and palatable way when I don’t have a lesson plan.”

    ★★★½

    I wanna watch an entire movie about the artistic sister who writes poetry about death and has what I assume is the best decorated room in all of Iceland.
