    Dune: Part Two

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    There have been few films that I’ve been excited for as Dune Two. The first one absolutely blew me away, and the wait for it has been absolutely agonizing ever since the strikes pushed it back four months. I am happy to say that Dune Part 2 exceeds the first in many ways, but also compliments it, lifts it up, creating a five and a half hour epic that few filmmakers would have been able to tackle as effectively as…

    Argylle

    ★★★

    Maybe the real Agent Argylle was the twisted friends we made along the way.

    Hundreds of Beavers

    ★★★★½

    If someone told me last week that you could fill a theater for a black and white slapstick comedy, I wouldn’t have believed it. But tonight, there I was, with a packed crowd enjoying one of the best comedies of the year(s?(when does letterboxd want to claim this is from?)).

This is an amazing hook, and the film weaves it in with a blossoming relationship between our lead (played wonderfully by Andrew Scott) and a…

    VeggieTales: Lord of the Beans

    ★★½

    More necessary for a Lord of the Rings fan than the entire Hobbit trilogy.

  • Oppenheimer

    Oppenheimer

    ★★★★★

    This is a defining movie for both its lead and it’s director.
       Cillian Murphy completely embodies Oppenheimer with a spry frailty that very few could truly achieve with looks alone (that’s not to say the makeup department didn’t also do amazing work here) combined with the sheer torment of his work fighting with a god complex buried just below the surface. Surrounding him is an all-star supporting cast giving some of their best performances as well, with Emily Blunt,…
