    WALL·E

    ★★★★★

    Metrograph put together a 35mm trailer package with trailers for Meet Dave, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, and Bolt, along with the Presto short film that played with this movie when it came out. It was like I got transported to 2008 which was a truly magical experience.

    WALL•E is my favorite movie of all-time. I saw it three times in theaters when it came out and obsessively rewatched it over and over again at home over the years. So as…

    Oppenheimer

    ★★★★★

    Oppenheimer shook me to my core. Christopher Nolan's most dialogue-heavy film, his most in-depth character study, but also his most suspenseful film to date. The tension is more stressful than most horror films I've seen.

    Cillian Murphy is extraordinary here, delivering easily his best performance to date. His expressions throughout the film perfectly convey Oppenheimer's torment, hubris, and terror. You feel the weight he carries across the entire 3 hours.

    Much has been said about the tremendous ensemble from Emily…

    Ay Dios mío, where to begin....

    Okay, so before I let myself go crazy, let's start with the good.

    Janusz Kamiński's cinematography is truly ravishing. Every frame oozes vibrant color and kinetic energy. That, combined with the stunning choreography that lives up to the high bar of the 1961 original, make for some dazzling sights. "The Dance at the Gym" and "America" are the most significant standouts.

    The ensemble overall, with one notable exception, deliver strong performances. David Alvarez, Rita…

  • Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    After the first solo Wolverine film being one of the worst superhero films ever made and the second film being moderately entertaining at best, I am beyond ecstatic with how much I loved "Logan." It's a bold, risk-taking superhero film with high stakes, real consequences, and genuine character drama. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart give the best performances they've ever given in these roles and James Mangold fulfills the promise of delivering the hard-R rated, violent Wolverine film that fans have wanted for so long. This is the best superhero film I've seen in a long time.
