It might just be because I’m a history buff, but I liked National Treasure (3.5 popcorn bags out of 5, perhaps?). I don’t usually like “so bad its good” movies, but this one, I felt, was truly awesome. I guess I have to suspend my criticism once in a while. (But not always – the sequel was just awful).
I saw Maleficent: Mistress of Evil on Friday. I’ll give it 3 popcorn bags out of 5. Mindlessly entertaining, with some strong performances. There were some major plot-holes, and we weren’t given enough time with Chiwetel Ejiofor’s character to care when he died.

- Darkest Hour

- The Post
- Ford v. Ferrari
