    Dune

    ★★★

    Dune is as technically perfect as any of his other films, but it’s very obviously missing the gut punch Villeneuve is SO good at. 

    It’s fine, but that’s not great news when compared to Sicario, Arrival, and Blade Runner 2049.

    I guess I hope Part II goes better?

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★

    Finally an Avenger with Daddy Issues for the rest of us! 

    Some of the best visuals and the absolute best fight scenes, wrapped up in some of the weakest plot points and some of the worst jokes. There is no reason to include *that* character in anything again, let alone in this.
