  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Tell you what: Should John Krasinski get more opportunities to direct, he’s got a solid double feature on which to build from. A Quiet Place Part II takes the first film’s radiating torch and runs with it magnificently.

    What I love most about Part II is that the intimacy of the first film remains, despite the addition of cast members and the expansion of the setting. Sure, we meet new characters, visit some new territory, and encounter some different obstacles, but…

  • Godzilla vs. Kong

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    Godzilla vs. Kong is an incomprehensible kaiju-fuck that shows all signs of having been written and directed by actual monkeys.

    The writing is tragic. What should have been a lean hour-and-a-half monster brawl, turned into a 2-hour-plus farrago of empty human stories badly woven between the all-too-brief skirmishes of the titans.

So, perhaps, if anything, Wes Anderson’s films should be compared to Amélie rather than the other way…

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★

    It’s wonderful that this film finally gets to see the light of day after all the well-publicized hullabaloo. For the man to be put through the ringer like he has been, both in his personal and professional life, it’s nice to see him be vindicated, so-to-speak. I certainly think that when the dust settles, Zack Snyder comes out on top, and deservedly so.

    Zack Snyder’s Justice League - though made from the same “stuff” as the 2017 version -  is compiled…
