Queen of the Desert

Plods. Hackneyed script. This should have been about Lady Jane Digby, which would have been a better film.

As someone who typically watches 1-2 movies in the theater each week, and hasn't seen but two in the past year because so much of what is being produced is simpleminded, I thought this film was terrific. Maybe the intercutting confused reviewers used to linear plot lines, live-action cartoons, nudity, and gratuitous violence and blood-spatter, but I found it riveting and watched it again with my husband, who also found it riveting. We're going to buy this film and add it to our 1000+ DVD collection. I would add that Ana de Armas, who is NOT interchangeable, saw her career skyrocket after this film. Okay, it's a detective story with supernatural elements. If you liked The Sixth Sense, you'll love this film even more, because you won't see the twist at the end coming, even watching it a second time. Yes, the director threw a hissy fit, because he wanted to do what sounded like a self-indulgent art house film and Lionsgate recut it into a tight thriller. I liked the thriller, a lot.

Christopher Robin

I was never into the Winnie-the-Pooh stories and didn't expect to like this. I did. It was charming. I loved that the voice for Pooh was close to Sterling Holloway's, who apparently did Pooh back in the 1970s (and so many other Disney characters!). Brought back a lot of memories.

Disappointing, given the reviews. Poor script. The character never emerge beyond stick-figures. No feeling of authenticity, beginning with the L.L. Bean outfits. I expected something between "Cry Wolf" and "Quest for Fire." This was just a groaner.

The Wolf of Wall Street
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is the film I thought of when the media claimed the President was vulgarizing our culture. The entire cast behaves like clods on cocaine, Scorsese terrifies a child actor on camera (the union should have complained), and poor Margot Robbie gets talked into taking off her clothes and has been trying to dig herself out of this ditch ever since (and succeeding fortunately).
