    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    Dear readers,

    I am writing to tell you about Top Gun: Maverick. A distinguished sequel to a beloved Navy adver- I mean film. Now it's surprising how well made this is when everything pointed to a crash and burn nostalgia-banking sequel. Instead it creates new emotional conflicts and barriers for Maverick and Rooster to break - meaning that this could easily stand strong on its own.

    There are a number of homages to the first, even bringing Penny Benjamin to…

    Dear readers,

    I am writing to tell you about Swing Girls, the enigmatic school band that did more for the Jazz genre than Jazz ever will for itself. Music bringing people together, all accompanied with shite instruments, hijinks snow and a brandy swirling math's teacher jazz enthusiast. This was everything I wished for and more than I thought I would get.

    I can tell you that at the start, I thought I would have something decent, but never expected to…

It's one of the best MCU films to date for perfectly following the first film in a manner that doesn't feel too commercialised. As Coogler said, you could feel Boseman throughout the film.

    I found…

    Dear readers,

    After a long, long sitting in the theatre (not runtime wise, more like I can't feel my legs as much-wise) I am still thinking about the fantastic cinematography and the sheer scale of the film. Something as mythic as it seems to present itself, Eggers understood the assignment. Anya Taylor-Joy is the real standout here as she pretty much carries the entire film and is the major reason why I am rating it as high as I am.…

    ★★½

    Dear readers,

    I am editing this since the more I think about this the less I like it. Now let me preface this by saying that the cinematography, editing, set design, costume design and most technical aspects were immaculate - mirroring the gritty shithole that is Gotham in a relatively decent way. Although, Batman Begins did a slightly better job with a more realistic approach.

    What hampers this film for me is the way they treat Selina Kyle. Filling the…
