Booksmart (2019, dir. Olivia Wilde)

Awkward best friends decide to let go of their insecurities the night before their high school graduation. Splendid and funny reworking of well-trampled material; a coming-of-age / rite-of-passage / night-from-hell story done right, and both played and directed with a keen sense of the subgenres. Recommended.

The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019, dir. Thurop Van Orman)

The birds and the pigs have to work together to prevent their islands from being destroyed by invaders. Okay dayglo sequel that is consistently funny even if it relies heavily on pop-culture gags and on slapstick side-missions nicked from the Ice Age movies.

Colossal (2016, dir. Nacho Vigalondo)

A woman returns home after a breakup and finds she can control a monster. Splendidly quirky black comedy about alcoholism, obsession, and childhood friendships. Oh, and kaiju. Well worth your time.
