Folks, you know what this is, you know what it's about. It's late, I'm tired, and I want to enjoy what's left of my time off. Let's rock and roll.
Before we go over my top ten films of the year, let's take a little detour and look at five films that maybe weren't so great, but are worth watching for various reasons.
It's little wonder how Julia Roberts got lured to TV; Amazon's crackerjack half-hour thriller, adapted from a popular podcast, takes full advantage of the medium's benefits.
This film is a breathless mess. It's portrayal of autism, however, isn't outwardly terrible; just part of a long-standing, damaging pattern of other portrayals of autism in film/TV.
Tight, suspenseful, twisted, and hilarious, the director of Bridesmaids just took a big leap forward.
Though it comes together in a way that's disappointingly flat, there's a lot to like in this Netflix teen romcom.
Jennifer Garner's in fine form, like she never missed a beat from her Alias days. Shame about the rest of it.
