    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★½

    Honestly, with each step taken further into the MCU's fourth phase, the more and more I warm up to this new approach that Marvel's starting to adopt. With "Black Widow's" personal spy thriller and now "Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings's" joyous love letter to Hong Kong fantasy/kung fu cinema, we see a de-emphasis on overarching narrative and an accentuation on character and directors wanting to try something new.

    ★★★★★

    Breathtaking, devastating, quite possibly the best directorial debut I've ever seen and an unmitigated masterpiece in nearly every facet, Florian Zeller's "The Father" represents the best sort of surprise you can encounter at the movie theater. Take a movie that you've heard very little about, from a director you've heard virtually nothing about and screen it at a rate of what feels one theater for every five hundred miles (in my area, at least) and you've got quite a long…
