2019 Reviews

So... I swapped grading systems in September 2017!  I've always hated that there are star-grading-systems out of 5 stars, and some out of 4, such that I always need to specify!  And I've found that conversationally I use letter grades more often, as there are more grade options, allowing for greater specificity.  So I figured that with my new approach of posting video-reviews on Instagram, now's a good time to swap grading systems.  Heeeere we go: letter grades it is!

Also, if you think I'm too nice given that most of my reviews are rather positive, remember:  I'm not a critic who's paid to see all movies including the bad.  I only go to see movies that I think I will like, and I'm pretty good at gauging that :)

THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON (C+)  I want to be a supporter of any movie in which one of the main characters (& actors) is a man with Down Syndrome, especially when he does lovely work (so cool!).  But when you step back and realize that you're watching a movie about Shia Labeouf helping a man with Down Syndrome become a wrestler, it's hard to turn down the sensitivity on your Hallmark-movie-shmaltz-meter.
