    The Bourne Supremacy

    ★★★★★

    Genuinely one of the greatest action spy films ever made. The final confrontation between Bourne and the Neski girl might be my favorite moment in the entire series. You just…feel it. Also, this is the perfect example of how Paul Greengrass is often imitated but NEVER matched. His visceral, documentarian, “shaky cam” style was not only revolutionary, but it’s so god damn effective here. It really places you inside the head of Bourne. 

    Rewatching for prep on an upcoming video series 👀
    Stay tuned…

    Begging Jon Favreau to leave the Disney Machine so he can go back to making passionate, inspired, personal cinema again. Look Iron Man’s great but this is genuinely his best film since Elf and it’s almost 10 YEARS OLD!

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★½

    Spider-Man No Way Home is the tale of 2 halves. First is everything I feared, cheap, gratuitous, nostalgia mixed w/ randomness and nonsense. Second is the quintessential Spider-Man story I’ve WANTED from Holland. Packs an emotional wallop & some of the best Spidey moments ever. Messy but satisfying.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★

    If Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness proves one thing it’s if you hire Sam Raimi to make a movie, you better damn well have him HEAVILY involved in the writers room. MASSIVE disconnect between the script & Raimi’s creative ambitions. Simultaneously some of the best AND worst of the MCU.

    When Raimi’s allowed to be goofy, mean spirited & sincere ORGANICALLY holy shit sparks fly. His vision for Strange is passionate & strong, wonderfully melodramatic & campy but good god is it…
