    Avatar

    ★★★★½

    Been a minute since seeing Avatar in full, let alone in IMAX 3D, but what a stunning achievement it remains in so many different areas, and somehow a testament to how great a filmmaker James Cameron is that as great as this flick is, it’s not even one of his top 3 best movies.

  • Clerks III

    Clerks III

    ★★½

    Clerks III has a very good script, and it's a real shame the Smith who directed the first sequel wasn't present. As it stands, some laughs are present (Jay Mewes emerges as the most comfortable on camera), and the heart is in the right spot, but it comes up way short in execution.

    ★★★★

    Snyder’s best since Watchmen. His efforts to keep the visuals interesting (he’s his own DP for this one) plays well with the “big dumb fun” energy that holds throughout, with the added bonus of a few characters playing better than they are written due to the cast. And the opening credits are terrific, which seems to be one aspect you can usually rely on for Snyder flicks.

  • Mank

    Mank

    ★★★★½

    Leave it to David Fincher to pivot away from a more familiar movie making story about Citizen Kane and instead dive headfirst into deconstructing Hollywood politics and make it engrossing. Mank is as impeccably made as one would expect, but also a fabulous writing treat.
