The Meg is thoroughly mediocre to the point where it should feel insulting, but I cannot summon an iota of energy to feel as such. I guess Jason Statham was alright, though.

Fantastic Beasts: Attack of the Clones sees J.K. Rowling fall into the same trap as George Lucas and Ridley Scott, where the mythologies of their brainchildren is getting prioritized (inconsistently, I might add) over the characters. It felt similar to Solo in terms of explaining stuff that should have been left to the imagination. There were some scenes that were decent though.

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is pretty good mostly on the strength of the performances and the script.

Crazy Rich Asians is adequate. Probably overhyped but reasonably pleasant.

Bradley Cooper’s A Star is Born remake is pretty great. First half definitely feels stronger but it may be due to less heavy subject matter. Solid performances, music, and production value.

Widows is probably in my top five of the year so far. The story is a bit conventional and some of the ensemble doesn’t get as much time as would be optimal, but Steve McQueen’s directorial style, the layered script, and lots of great acting more than compensates. It’ll probably get snubbed in a lot of awards shows this season but it’ll probably age well with time.

Three Identifal Strangers isn’t the best documentary I’ve seen this year (granted I’be only seen three from 2018), but it tells a pretty fascinating story.

BlacKkKlansman was a solid introduction to Spike Lee’s work. John David Washington and Adam Driver make for a memorable duo and the film juggles different tonal shifts quite well. I’m ambivalent about the use of the Charlottesville riot footage mostly on artistic grounds (it feels a bit redundant for me given the final shot prior to the footage, which establishes the same message the footage was). I understand that this is Spike Lee’s style, however.

The new Suspiria might be better than the original.

Now that Filmstruck is dying I regret not having tried it out. I would use it for the last month of its existence but it wouldn’t be worth the cost. Looks like I’ll have to hope that libraries have the Criterion disks.
Honestly I think there are a lot of libraries that have similar collections of classic films, I wouldn't be too worried.

Coco still holds up. Some of the songs may be better in the Spanish dub than in English.

Finally got The Shining off my watch-list. Its capacity to emotionally drain is hardly described when people discuss it, but that was the primary response I got. As expected from Kubrick, it's a masterpiece.

The Sisters Brothers is a solid, if somewhat anticlimactic western with great cinematography and performances.

Bad Times at the El Royale is entertaining if a bit too long for its own good. Great performances from Erivo and Bridges though.
