That's the worst club. The best club is the one where we all recognize that Goblet of Fire is actually great and the best of the non-Azkaban ones.

Grint does have good timing... but not much else. He does fine in Deathly Hallows Part 1 I suppose, but he's clearly the weaker of the three by a country mile.

It's crazy that my girlfriend, son and I did the same thing this weekend (couldn't get to the last 2, though). Still haven't seen either of the last two films and am really excited to this weekend.

I think I still have Azkaban over Phoenix, though.

Goblet of Fire is the best book, fwiw.

The best club is the one that recognizes Azkaban is the best. All the other clubs are just clubs full of people who like to be wrong about things.

I belong in the wrong-headed Phoenix club, then.

Great use of a New Year's weekend, Corndog and Matt!

Looking at your Criticker, we're talking about a difference of 4 points. And like you say, "The casting of Luna Lovegood is perfect, and of course Imelda Staunton is excellent as Umbridge." Order has Grawp, but Azkaban has the lengthy Screaming Shack sequence that has to explain everything.

Toni Erdmann
Contains a number of the funniest scenes I've experienced in a long time. The naked party is an all-time classic sequence.

The Handmaiden
The flat-out most entertaining film I've seen of the 2016 releases. An expertly crafted thriller with a tremendous sense of humor and eroticism.

Keanu
Some funny moments, but focuses on plot over laughs too often.

The Wailing
Has a number of mystery and horror elements I really liked and some very good performances, but the final act is a mess.

Postcards from the Edge
Incredibly wry and witty (as you'd expect from Carrie Fisher) with a strong performance from Streep and an even better one from Shirley MacLaine.

This is correct. I love the movie, but it's the worst one to compare its book  :-\

Rewatched the original Star Wars trilogy to start the year. Bumped both ANH and ESB up half-a-star in my ratings, whatever misgivings I had about the original in particular are dissipating. Jedi is still rough and uneven, but the good parts are so good that I still enjoy it. ESB is clearly above anything else in the franchise in pretty much all aspects : direction, writing, cinematography, score, production design... TFA might have it beat on acting I suppose.
