    Logan Lucky

    ★★★½

    Steven Soderbergh’s take on the “one for them” approach to filmmaking is always amazing because it somehow indulges all the must haves of popular entertainment while still possessing the director’s own idiosyncrasies and sensibilities.

When I entered middle school and was finally granted a DVD copy for my for birthday, watching the film felt like a birthright. Like this was the moment where life changed, all because I could watch fucking Gremlins.…
