JUST MERCY (Destin Cretton, 2019)


Very Lifetime courtroom drama feels, but with great performances from its powerhouse cast (that included Michael B. Jordan and the criminally-snubbed Jamie Foxx).

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth. In too many places, the opposite of poverty is justice.”

Rating: ★★★☆☆

JOJO RABBIT (Taika Waititi, 2019)


It’s Life is Beautiful by way of Wes Anderson.

Am I going to hell for having laughed so hard at this Holocaust comedy? Probably not, since it was obviously a satire.

The entire ensemble was fantastic (love the adorable Yorkie!), but Roman Griffin Davis was the absolute star of the show.

“Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.”

Rating: ★★★★☆
