OVERRATED: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ WORST: ‘Fist Fight’

Overrated: CALL ME BY YOUR NAME This is an admittedly beautifully shot travelogue of Italy, which isn’t able to distract entirely from its troublesome subtexts. On one side, it refreshingly treats a gay teen’s (Timothée Chalamet) coming of age with sensitivity. On the other side, the fact that his awakening happens with a much older man (Armie Hammer) gives the otherwise touching story an unfortunate underbelly… the two sides just don’t mesh.

Worst: FIST FIGHT It was pretty neck and neck between the laughable serial killer drama THE SNOWMAN and the tone-deaf FIST FIGHT. In the end, FIGHT won out because of the sheer ineptitude of the enterprise, stranding a collection of talent in a woebegone premise which is a perfect example of the old pondering “How did this get made?” This film can’t sustain its two minute trailer – much less a feature length film – and retroactively makes you question the talents of everyone involved.
