    Gattaca of course.

    I have a morbid curiosity about The Munsters: Rob Zombie makes a soft PG-rated prequel to the 60s series. However, the advance reviews from actual critics have been abysmal. Then again, a lot of people dismissed Hudson Hawk and, no, it’s not a great film, but it’s passable for what it’s trying to be. Zelig is excellent, assuming you aren’t completely put off by Woody Allen. Spider-man: No Way Home is enjoyable, as close as the live MCU likely will get to Into the Spider-verse. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood I found overrated and problematic, but certainly very well crafted.

    Mean Girls, if you’ve never seen it, lives up to its reputation. It’s not just another teen comedy.
