Alexander Hamilton looks terrible in it.
Wendy thought Hamilton gave the best performance, I thought he was the worst thing in the movie. So, mixed reviews I guess.

I was dragged to Mary Poppins Returns. Two hours and ten minutes of oh my god shut the fuck up already.
I really liked it.

The best movie I saw over the holidays was, by far, Spider man: into the Spiderverse. I'm not much of a comics person, but this movie was so damn well done, from the animation, to the storyline, to the music and to the fact that it had great representation of people of color. Please go see it!

Thanks for the review Jenny. My son wants to see this and I haven't been that open to the idea. I'll try to remedy that this weekend especially since he is getting to the point where he probably won't want to go to movies with his parents.

Saw 2 movies yesterday. Holmes & Watson is not good. A few funny gags, but overall a complete mess. The new Wreck-It Ralph movie, however - is a really great movie!!

New Years Eve, we watched Foxfire, a fairly faithful adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates novel of a girl gang in upstate New York in the 1950s. They begin as a form of protection and revenge on predatory men, but become more ambitious, and then, like all radical movements, problems and internal conflict set in. This was a Canadian production—the novel was adapted in the 90s with Angelina Jolie, but I haven't seen it and understand it plays fast and loose with the material—and almost all the cast were local first-timers. The actor who plays Legs, the leader of the gang, is especially mesmerizing as a deeply intelligent, androgynous, and angry young woman, both too sensitive and insensitive about what she's started. The movie runs a bit long and isn't subtle, but I liked it a great deal, paralleling in miniature how various political and social movements of the 60s rose and collapsed.

Six or seven years, I think.

Al Pacino generally bugs me—don't ask me why—but that flick is seriously mesmerizing.

I saw the Laurel & Hardy movie today. Really enjoyed it. They both look and sound just like them and are great but, if anything, their wives are the stars. Some really good scenes with them two.

Lizze with Chloe Sevigny and Kristen "I always looked constipated" Stewart. Awfully done movie but an interesting take on the Lizzie Borden's motivation for the murders.

You'll feel bad if it turns out she hasn't pooped in 15 years.

I also don't like her but I thought she was pretty good in Cafe Society.
