    What If

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    What If is a very under-appreciated romantic comedy. It's not great and it doesn't really do anything that a thousand rom-coms haven't already done, but it has heart, likeable characters, and a solid narrative.

    There are some screenplay issues and very wobbly dialogue at times, but the ensemble of talented actors did enough to keep me locked in from start to finish.

    If you are looking for a charming film to watch with your partner one night, this is definitely…

    Dredd

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Dredd is a film that's much better than it has any right to be. It's not the strongest in terms of the narrative, the characters, or the script as a whole, but it was thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.

    John Krasinski is such a phenomenal director. The film was pieced together remarkably well, with terrific camera-work, editing, sound, cinematography, and acting. The musical score is also…

    Cruella

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Cruella was a devilishly delightful film that completely surprised me. I expected it to be good, but it exceeded my expectations.

    I’ll start with the performances. Emma Stone and Emma Thompson were absolutely fantastic, and these are two of their best roles to date. The supporting cast also did a wonderful job.

    The cinematography, set-pieces, camera-work, sound design, musical score, soundtrack, and editing were all amazing, and I was wrapped up in the tale of Cruella right from the opening…
