TWENEEK19: Q1 Films

It's a little light this quarter because a lot of the films I saw in theaters were 2018 oscar films and such.
8The 1975
The 1975

Dumbo: 6/10
I was mildly entertained throughout, yet there was a spark missing at the heart of this film that should have carried me through that simply wasn’t there. It also sorely missed Burton’s trademark style, leaving it to largely feel like palatable studio machinery the longer you sit with it.
7The Weeknd
My Dear Melancholy,

Arctic: 6/10
A brisk, taut survival thriller with some of the most intense physical acting I've seen from Mikkelsen, yet it flubs the ending in the most generic, manipulative way possible.
6Twenty One Pilots

Glass: 6/10
There's visual grace and a vague sense of purpose throughout, but as a conclusion it feels like it has nothing to do with either of its much better installments.
5GOOD Music
Cruel Summer

Us: 6/10
It's unsettling as they come, but its artistic/symbolic reach mixes poorly with its sarcastic lampoons of the genre, combining into a bizarre mish-mash that demands that you take it more seriously than it takes itself before copping out in a frustrating ending that spoils its own thematic relevancy.
4Mike Shinoda
Post Traumatic

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot: 7/10
An admirable work of tone and style over substance, and yet the flaws are deeply human and sympathetic; in this way the film becomes a bizarre embodiment of its protagonist, confused about what its purpose is in the first place. But this is part of what makes it so strangely engaging.
At What Cost

Cold Pursuit: 8/10
Wedged strangely between Scandinavian humor and Hollywood storytelling, Cold Pursuit is a strangely unique and funny film that doesn't end quite right, but is more than worth the ride.

Captain Marvel: 8/10
An exciting pseudo-twist on the Marvel formula, this flick makes the most of its roots and turns heads with visual flair and emotional punches in a way that feels genuine thanks largely to Larsen's charisma and the smart use of indie drama talent in the directors' chairs.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part: 9/10
With tons of unexpected twists and turns and emotional beats, The Second Part may not be as funny as its predecessor, but its just as if not more moving and brilliant.
