    Scream

    ★★★½

    Ghostface is back and meaner than ever. The first entry in the franchise without Wes Craven at the helm, Scream combines a fresh cast with legacy characters for a bloody, ruthless whodunnit. Its winking genre-savviness isn’t quite as skewering or clever as it thinks it is, but Scream’s latest stewards of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett carve out a new brand of brutality while paying humble respect to the spirit of Wes Craven. It feels good to be back in Woodsboro.

    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★½

    A bare-knuckle haymaker across the dome of our obsession with nostalgia and Hollywood’s reboot complex, The Matrix Resurrections is ambitious, sci-fi metafiction sure to be divisive. Tackling themes of creator vs. destroyer, revival, and the illusion of choice in a brand new context, it’s Lana Wachowski’s meditation on why she didn’t want do another Matrix movie…via another Matrix movie - and it’s great.

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★★

    Nerds of fantasy and Arthurian lore rejoice, David Lowery’s latest film is a sumptuous translation of the anonymous Pearl Poet’s chivalric romance into visual splendor. A medieval epic unlike any other, The Green Knight grapples with the tensions between Christian honor and primordial pagan magic amidst a hero’s journey. Deliberate, visceral, and cerebral, the film rises above its sword and sorcery as true poetry in motion.

    Those Who Wish Me Dead

    ★★★½

    Kicking the moral complexities of his bracing “Frontier Trilogy” to the curb, Taylor Sheridan’s Those Who Wish Me Dead is a by-the-numbers action thriller buoyed by its character work and unique setting. A properly subdued performance showcases Angelina Jolie’s quiet gravitas, revealing just how much her presence has been missed on the big screen. Its narrative may be thin, but Those Who Wish Me Dead’s dual threats of ruthless assassins and unforgiving elemental forces leave a lasting impression.
