The story of McDonald's founder Ray Kroc.
Completely stolid biopic with a script so thin it could’ve been written in crayon. There is no evidence here that the story behind McDonalds restaurants was worth telling.

Bad Santa 2
Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie and Marcus team up again to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve.
Unnecessary sequel with very few jokes landing (those of which are mostly provided by Ms Bates). It is, however, relatively short.

Your Name **
Two high school kids who've never met – city boy Taki and country girl Mitsuha – discover they can switch bodies.
Intriguing but somewhat confused celestial comedy that became a giant hit in its native Japan. Shinkai still finds technique to be more interesting than story.
