Little Women

Little Women

2019 ∙ Period Drama ∙ 2h 15min I am just killing it with these year-old movies! Movies based on 152-year-old books. I'm honestly not sure why I wanted to se...
Legion Season 3

Legion: Season 3

There has truly never been a TV series like Legion. A giant mind-fuck, acid trip of a show that seems to create the rules on a minute-by-minute basis. Completely unknowable...
Parasite

Parasite

Yes, I am the last person on Earth to see Parasite. And I've decided that's okay. It's almost a challenge these days to avoid spoilers. It's not just like the old days...
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

What's better than watching a semi-violent Dwayne Johnson movie with children when stuck home during a global pandemic? A movie loosely connected to a very successful...
Jumanji the Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level

This is what happens when you let the kids pick the movie. It's like letting the kids name the pets. That's why there are so many cats out there named Kitty and Fluffy...
Unbelievable

Unbelievable

I had heard a lot of noise about Unbelievable before dialing it up on the Netflix machine. Most of it talked about its unflinching look at sexual assault and praised it...
Glass

Glass

God only knows what possessed me to want to finish this Shymalan trilogy. I alone seemed to like Unbreakable back in the day. And then finally got around to seeing the...
Bombshell

Bombshell

I honestly had no interest in seeing this movie. And after seeing it I'm sticking to my initial resistance. First, you know they're going to try to make me care about...
Ford v Ferrari

Ford v Ferrari

There are movies where the moviemaking overcomes the movie itself. In other words, the script or narrative may be lacking, but the sheer spectacle of the thing makes it...
Knives Out

Knives Out

I recall the first time I saw a trailer for Knives Out. And I recall that I was excited as hell to see it. Never mind the fact it looked like a 2019 update of the movie...
Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Ok, I've hit rock bottom. No, seriously, this is me pretty much giving up. Hipster Jr. Jr. didn't even have to lead me into the abyss. I asked her if she wanted to watch...
Marriage Story

Marriage Story

I recall someone saying that they should technically call this Divorce Story. Accurate. And then someone else I know asked why in the hell anyone would want to watch a...
The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch

Ms. Hipster read The Goldfinch some time ago. So did like half the planet. It seems, on the surface, like something I'd enjoy. But she and almost every review I read...
Good Boys

Good Boys

I always feel weird watching movies that star kids. In fact, at my advanced age, I feel strange watching films that star teenagers, college students, young adults and even...
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Nobody needs to hear yet another Star Wars take. But here it is. This series has outlived its usefulness. The trilogy, as they've concepted it, has outlived its usefulness...
Booksmart

Booksmart

Is it creepy that I'm watching this movie? Maybe. Maybe not. I mean, it's not quite Losin' It or The Last American Virgin, but any time I — an adult male — watch...
Long Shot

Long Shot

Long live the romantic comedy. No, seriously. I'm a sucker for them. They make for the perfect background entertainment. Or, in this case, the perfect in-the-air...
