Flew across country earlier this week so knocked off a handful of 2018 films I'd missed:
Ready Player One
Watched an hour and still wasn't invested. Film lacked a pulse and main character didn't hook me.
Almost didn't finish this one either, but glad I did. Pales in comparison to the first, but this was pretty fun. They keep the family apart for far too long. The only true bright spot is Edna.
Indiana Jones without the charm, sense of humor, or sense of adventure. Vikander is fine, but her character is underserved. All steely resolve and CGI stunts. A little humor would have gone a long way.
Isle of Dogs
I love Wes Anderson. I already barely remember this movie. It's a step even farther from his usual remove and really suffers for it.
The best of the bunch, though I still had 20 minutes left when we landed (so hopefully it sticks its landing). Thought it was charming, lots of good characters, good high school storylines, etc.
A Star is Born
Pretty good. Like every version before it the first 30 minutes are the best and culminate with the star-turn, which this one pulls off very nicely. Was disappointed how middle of the road their relationship was. The Streisand version is not very good, but at least it had some real conflict between the characters - I especially like when she catches him in bed with a reporter who was there to interview her, but she doesn't duck the interview, she still sits down with the woman and crafts her own narrative. You might say this version is a little... sha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hallow.
