I love Arrival so so much. It hits my all-time favorites list.
Hidden Figures made me happy. The acting was so vibrant and it was a real celebration of the previously unsung heroes of the space race.
Manchester by the Sea was just... sad. I thought Casey Affleck deserved to win Best Actor at the Oscars, but his win was definitely soured by the sexual assault allegations that have been floating around. It's too bad he couldn't keep his hands to himself, because I've thought he's a good actor since Gone Baby Gone. And can we give Michelle Williams a role where she's, yknow, happy?
Nocturnal Animals was depressing. Gripping, but depressing.
The Light Between Oceans was sad, but very beautifully shot. It's a story about love and guilt. And man, I would love to live on that island.
