    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★★

    Top Gun Maverick grabbed me in the danger zone and didn't let go for 2 and a half hours. It's a film that improves on the original in every aspect. With Top Gun, we saw Maverick as a selfish character who put himself before everyone else. In Top Gun Maverick, he's older and dealing with the consequences of the actions of his youth. A cautionary tale, if you will, about how life isn’t all hot dogging in planes, oiled-up volleyball,…

    Gilly Del Toro makes a fatalistic, twisted carnival horror/neo-noir? Yeah sign me up. Geeks, grifters, patricide, femme fatales; Del Toro steps away from the supernatural and explores the monstrous side of humanity through a character study of the doomed protagonist. A throwback to classic noir films Bradley Cooper plays a carnival con man touring as “Master Stanton” with his new love and assistant Molly (the electric Rooney Mara). But when an encounter with sultry and devious psychoanalyst Lilith Ritter (Cate…

    Confess, Fletch

    ★★★★

    Confess, Fletch is a medium-stakes, sensible chuckle caper that lets John Hamm playfully quip as he does his crime solver thing. Breezy, quick witted and thoughly enjoyable, it's a noir for the sarcastic generation. I'd be down for a series a these.

  • Seven Samurai

    Seven Samurai

    ★★★★★

    An epic Samurai drama set in feudal Japan, Akira Kurowasa's Seven Samurai is a brilliant and heroic ode to Japanese history and a masterwork in directing. Following threats from bandits who want to come back to a small village to steal their crops, villagers venture out to hire seven Ronin to protect their homes and fields; a mix of skilled warriors, mediocre swordsman, one young trainee/disciple, and one crazy drunk who isn’t actually a real samurai. The film's hefty runtime…

    The Beatles: Get Back

    ★★★★★

    Paul McCartney coming up with a tune while waiting for John to arrive and it quickly forming into Get Back was the most exhilarating 15 minutes of film I've seen all year.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★★★

    Villeneuve has once again crafted an awe inspiring sci-fi epic for the ages. In a galaxy far far away a young hero gifted with superhuman mental powers braves a dangerous sand world and faces his destiny - May the Voice be with You. Yeah yeah the Star Wars parallels were unavoidable, heck at one point Paul was instructed as per Yoda to "Remember your training". Regardless, I was transfixed for what I'm told was a long runtime. I loved the…
