    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★½

    In the confines of the MCU's framework and anatomy, its DNA, you will have noticed Gunn's cinematic method has now reached a beautiful crossroads within it's aforementioned universe. A meshing and bonding of the two. Finding the ubiquitous amounts of heart all around us, unearthing and ascertaining affinities of the one's closest to you and those of higher understanding and purpose, and continually redefining brand.

    ★★★★★

    Stuff all the Roland Emmerich’s of this world into a boat and let it sink. We need more Denis Villeneuve’s. Arrival meditates on first contact questions I have long pondered but never voiced. Lensed to a purposefully and forcefully perceptive intent orientated meeting of language, sound, discourse and meaning. Sewing together time and memory, a touchingly beautiful retrospection transiently fleeting. Right from the opening scene you know the subplot is integral, a fast shot of life, raising one’s kids.
