Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde dir. David Leitch (2017) Although Charlize Theron fully justifies her first billing, Atomic Blonde itself is a gratuitously stylistic and ill-considered mix of intestinal plot twists and boring-as-bat-shit-in-a-dark-cave violence. Far more intrigue (and enjoyment) could have been generated had John Goodman played every other part, simultaneously.    

Monsters, Inc.

Monsters, Inc. dir. Pete Docter (2001) John Goodman and Billy Crystal are perfectly cast and animated as portal-hopping monsters whose night-scaring elicits the screams needed to power Monstropolis. The status quo turns to sweet crumble when their rival’s scheming brings a three-year-old human (presumed deadly) into their world.
