    Quantum of Solace

    ★★★★

    Can't say that I understand the hate this one gets. The action and stunts absolutely rip, and that opening foot chase is an all-timer. The Pakula style conspiracy plot creeps me out, and Mr. White is one of my favorite recurring characters in the series.

    Maybe it's a little too removed from the formula for some (Bond doesn't bang the girl. No deformed villain. No sexual double entendre.), but it was a fifty year old franchise by this point. Isn't it refreshing to try something a little different?

    Toy Story 4

    ★★★½

    A completely unnecessary sequel that manages to be inoffensive. It's THE FRENCH CONNECTION II of animated films.

    Completely unmoved by this film's big emotional moments, if only because the entire series has been one existential crisis after the next. I was mainly just drinking in the beautiful visuals.

    I appreciate the continued use of creepy horror imagery; this time personified by the ventriloquist doll minions. Key and Peele were surprisingly the worst thing about this. Every character ignoring the ticking clock was more stressful than UNCUT GEMS.

    ★★

    The initial reveal of the monster might be one of the all time great movie scares, which makes it even more unfortunate that the rest of this film's brief running time feels like such a slog. Bad performances of obnoxious characters, running for their lives from a Power Rangers villain. "It's not a movie, it's Netflix!"

    ★★★★

    This should have won the Oscar for Most Mansion Burnings.
