All those things could've made a good movie great, but as it stands, they make a bad movie disappointing.
Knives Out 2/18/20
Episode VIII received the film's only Oscar nomination for a richly intricate and intelligent screenplay that pays homage to movies like Ten Little Indians, Murder on the Orient Express, and even Clue but brings deliciously amusing complexity to the proceedings by giving all of the Thronby family members their own twisted personalities and agendas, molding a family of serious dysfunction who ban together when they realize that the prize they've all had their eyes on might be going outside of the family.
I Lost My Body 2/17/20
A 2019 Oscar nominee for Outstanding Animated Feature, I Lost My Body is a slightly pretentious but visually arresting animated film experience for adults that unfolds so slowly that the viewer wants to give up but patience is rewarded to a degree.
A Fish Called Wanda 2/16/20
Jamie Lee Curtis offers one of her brightest and sexiest performances as Wanda, the story's smartest character who anchors these nutty proceedings with complete ease and works well with Cleese, playing Archie Leach (which, BTW, is the birth name of movie legend Cary Grant).
Finally the reviews were trickling in and it sits at 17% for critics, whereas Del Toro's films sit at 81% and 86%.

I've seen a lot of Judy Garland films that's for sure, but who cares, that doesn't mean I know who the real Judy was.
Age Out 2/11/20
The cinematography is the best thing about the movie, which tells the story of an orphan trying to make a fresh start in life after being released from a care home.
The heroine's name Shanti was also the name of the director's mother who never was able to return to her homeland after being evicted from it , and you have to watch the movie with the mindset that the director wanted to make a endearing and enduring love story set in backdrop of Kashmir in order to enjoy the movie .
