Darkest Hour
2018/01/09 @Celebration, theater 2, seat F5 via MoviePass An interesting tale of Churchill becoming Prime Minister and his securing of his position within the first month. It was difficult to understand Churchill at a number of points, which I get that he talked like that, but it makes it difficult to understand what is going on. Also, the movie wanders at points, focusing on characters that don't really have a role in the movie, like his assistant. Also, too much focus is put on times when nothing is happening, and not enough on significant things, like when people are changing their mind about things for unknown reasons. Still, it was worth a watch for the history. The tone was great, and the speeches powerful and well done.

War for the Planet of the Apes
2018/01/03 @home on DVD with Kendra The conclusion of the new ape trilogy. Entertaining enough, but not as good as the previous two.

“Surprising hilarious sequel to the original Jumanji. This time, Jumanji takes the form of a video game and is explained (well enough) in the movie. I enjoyed it from beginning to end, more than the original. The characters in the game being out of sync with the players controlling them may be clich” read more

The Greatest Showman
2018/01/01 @Celebration Cinema, theater 2, seat D10 via MoviePass A surprise musical, as I don't recall any of the previews indicating as such. Music was OK, but not memorable. Story was predictable and likely glossed over many details. Entertaining, but I found myself bored at parts.

The LEGO Batman Movie (2017)
2017/12/31 @home from DVR with Kendra and Katy Amusing, self-aware story of Batman. Story was kinda weak. And, I really don't get why it is "Lego" Batman? Couldn't there just have been a silly Batman cartoon? Sure, some Lego stuff was worked into the story, but it would have just taken a different turn without it.

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi
2017/12/14 @Goodrich Kalamazoo 10 - theater 5, row 5 via MoviePass A fun sequel to the Force Awakens. Expectations of the plot and characters are dashed, with failure being a main theme. 2017/12/16 @Celebration Cinema Crossroads - theater 12, seat E4 via MoviePass Still enjoyed. Love me some Star Wars. 2017/12/21 @Celebration Cinema Crossroads - theater 1, seat C8 via MoviePass I've been enjoying this one the more I see it.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
2017/12/10 @Celebration Crossroads, Theater 8, Seat D3 via MoviePass A tale of believable characters and the effect an aging tragedy has on them. Numerous spots of dark comedy with a crime drama as the backdrop. Clever writing and great acting, the characters grow throughout and it is encouraging to see it play out.

Arphahat posted a review of Roman J. Israel, Esq.

“Boring. That is the one-word answer to summarize this movie. The protagonist was a weirdo and unrelatable and the pacing between scenes of interest dragged. Intentions of the main character were also questionable. Well, whatever, I enjoyed the popcorn bucket, so there's that, I guess. 6/10” read more

Justice League
2017/11/16 @Goodrich Kalamazoo 10 Theater 1, Row 4 via MoviePass Fun superhero movie. My biggest complaint with DC is that the pacing is too quick. They are like a fan writing the story and are just too excited to put every character and every story from the comics into the movie. Three of the characters in this movie just showed up, with no real build up, or development. That said, the action was good, the comedy was enjoyable, and the story decent enough.
