    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★★

    You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because that's what needs to happen. Because sometimes the truth isn't good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

    If Batman Begins is Bruce learning to do what is necessary in order to inspire Gotham, The Dark Knight is Bruce directly grappling with the consequences and sacrifice of being Batman. Bruce almost has to reject his humanity in order to do the right thing in…

    CityWalk 70mm IMAX! 

    Yeah, I'm convinced this is the Lawrence of Arabia of the 21st Century. Is that a bold statement? Probably, but it's pretty accurate. Also insane how this pretty much reframes Nolan's entire filmography linking each movie together in a way that gradually peels back the layers of the man revealing his soul and the fears and anxieties that keep him up at night. His fear of man's lust for dominance and arrogant pursuit of knowledge and its cycle…

    Really locked onto Neil's perspective this viewing and, specifically, how his final words cause a melancholic shift in The Protagonist in the final moments of the film. Everything that's ever happened and that's going to happen has happened - it's scary to think that we are in less control of the outcome of our lives than we think, that we can't pick the perfect moment for our lives to end, that it's unexpected and will likely come at any moment.…

  • 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…
