Kubo and the Two Strings
I saw this one in theaters with my husband and son. The animation was gorgeous, easily the best of the year. The story, however just didn't match other animated greats like Zootopia or Finding Dory. Plus, my son was irrationally bothered by the fact that Kubo's instrument had three strings on it for most of the film. "Why isn't it called Kubo and the THREE strings?" Symbolism, son.
Hello, My Name is Doris
When I first saw the trailer through this, I figured it would be ageist and piss me off. Then I read a few positive reviews on it and decided to give it a chance. Nope, terrible movie not worthy of the performance Sally Field gave. Doris is stuck in life surrounded by mostly shitty people. Of course she fucks everything up and has to come clean about it. I found myself asking "why?" so many times during this.
Batman v Superman
The Night Of
This is an eight episode mini series that I've been watching on HBO. It had its finale on Sunday. Overall, I really enjoyed it. It was very tense, the pilot in particular was an amazing hour of TV. However most of the characters ended up doing incredibly stupid things. Like, forced plot stupid. One of the lawyer's actions just flat out didn't make sense. It doesn't ruin the show, I'd still recommend it, but that was hard to get around. The ending of the series was so sad because you know things like that happen often.
