    Not upper echelon for me, but engaging enough. The biggest problem to this film for me is how del Toro seems to give each of his main 1960s cultural issues about one or two lines of dialogue and then...

    Episode 9 of Runaways (released today) was pretty bad, and here it even misconstrues the teen drama for excess, pausing for sex (rather than a brief diversion) and embraced lesbianism from characters...

    This has been a year where I found myself much more invested in books than in film, and probably resulted in the fewest number of films watched since the earlier 00s. That said, it was a vibrant year...
