Refresher: I take every movie I’ve seen this year that range from great to “meh, entertaining enough” and split them up evenly within 6 tiers, rather than a straight up 1,2,3 ranking. Additions to the April update were 10 Cloverfield Lane, James White, Batman v Superman (hatewatch), Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, and Vacation. You can see spoiler-free blurbs on each of these below. Keep in mind that Q1 is generally the weakest quarter in terms of quality of movies released, so it’s likely that a lot of these will drop down a tier or two later in year.
A couple movies that did not make this list were Carol and Trumbo. I gotta stop thinking I need to see something that I never would have messed with otherwise just because it was Oscar nominated. I understand the artistic accomplishments of Carol, but I’m just not about that life.
