3.5/10 64% Cowboy Bebop: The Movie (Kaubôi Bibappu: Tengoku no Tobira) (2003) It's crazy how something with so many pieces can still feel so slow and bland? I'm sure some anime fans will be horrified by that statement but there it is. - rachelsreviews.net EDIT

2/10 30% Can You Keep a Secret? (2019) Hoechlin is super dishy but he and Daddario have no chemistry together. Most of the time it is awkward and uncomfortable which is not what you want in this kind of escapist romcom. - rachelsreviews.net EDIT

4/10 48% Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019) I know we are supposed to care for Bernadette and her stifled artistry but I just didn't. She was too irrational and self-centered to win any sympathy from me which made the movie tough to get through - rachelsreviews.net EDIT
