    I'll bite.

    I watched Hidden Figures two days ago.

    7/10, great message, surely inspirational for some. However, as a standalone movie I did not really like how it was written. It felt like every other piece of dialogue was trying to make some super meaningful statement that everything just sounded unnatural.

    EDIT: anddddddd I watched Moonlight today.

    9/10, the movie just flew right by in spite of the not particularly exciting premise of it. It's kind of similar to Hidden Figures in the sense that it highlights the kind of person that normally gets ignored/marginalized but it actually does so with natural sounding dialogue. Much more insightful that way tbh.

    La La Land: 9/10

    It's not the most original, groundbreaking movie, but damn if it doesn't do a good job with what it does. There hasn't been a high profile musical movie since, what, Chicago? La La Land fills that gap and does a tremendous job. Gosling and Stone have amazing chemistry, and they actually sing a lot better than I thought they would. They're a great couple, with very different aspirations that serve as a great way to drive their relationship forward. It's a very well made movie - great sound design, great casting, great script, great pacing - and that more than makes up for its unoriginality.

    Split: 6/10

    An actually thrilling movie from M Night Shaymalan. I think I wanted to like this movie more than I did, but it was still reasonably good. James McAvoy really makes this movie what it is. He does a very good job coming across as unhinged and damaged. The other major actors aren't terrible by any means, but they aren't exactly memorable either. The plot was decently suspenseful if a little by the numbers insofar as "people kidnapped by a psychopath" plots go. The little "wink wink nudge nudge" part at the end of the movie was actually pretty cool; my only complaint with that is that people who haven't seen the movie it's referencing won't get the twist. Other than that, it's pretty decent all around. Pretty entertaining for a suspense movie if you're a big fan and you want to see them all, but I'm not sure if I can say I really recommend it fully, necessarily.

    So I just watched La La Land. I don't really disagree with anything Sanic said but as a pure enjoyment rating I'd say more like an 8/10. Didn't really do anything wrong in particular but I've never been huge on musicals to begin with rip. The ending was beautiful though.

    Welp, just saw Get Out, my first movie of 2017 that's actually like, from 2017 kek. And... yeah that was a great fucking film. If you treat it purely as a horror movie, it was sort of typical in its general set up of "slowly getting creepier and creepier until we get a really crazy climax." However, it was much more than a standard horror movie. The premise is pretty fucking unique for a horror film (I think so any way, maybe someone could pull some shit out from the 1980s that proves me wrong but I don't know about it). And the execution was just so fucking good. It was just genuinely unsettling, and I especially liked how the creepiness felt like stuff that could actually happen (at the beginning any way). Lots of nice subtle details, great acting, and just a genuinely intelligent story in spite of that probably not being commonplace in its genre(s). So yeah, I'd be surprised if I ended up liking another movie more than this this year, but who knowssssssssss.

    9.5/10
