    Transformers: The Last Knight

    ★★★★★

    In his poignant ode to simplicity, Michael Bay's "Transformers: The Last Knight" captures the sensation of how technology can lead to alienation in a way that hasn't been achieved since Radiohead's "OK Computer."

    Working from a meticulously crafted and deeply personal script by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (story by Akiva Goldsman, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan), Bay shows us the many ways we and our planet have been changed by runaway science - transformed, if…

    Joker

    ★★★

    1. 'joker' is definitely a comic book movie and it's ludicrous that anyone involved in making it is trying to pretend otherwise

    2. it is nowhere near as interesting thematically as it wants to be or thinks it is

    3. whatever politics the film displays - which basically are no deeper than 'fuck the rich' and 'feeling ignored sucks' - are at least as much antifa as 'revenge of the loner incel white men'

    ★★★½

    i couldn't really tell you what i'd cut but it felt too long to me

    austin butler was fantastic, but his resemblance to vera farmiga - pointed out many times on twitter before i saw the movie - was legitimately distracting to me lol

    tom hanks's performance wasn't my favorite cinematic portrayal of the penguin, but i enjoyed whatever the hell it was he was doing

    baz luhrmann is basically michael bay if he'd been a theater kid

    *naru fighting the french in their camp

    i haven't cackled with delight through a horror movie the way i did here in forever, and it was pretty much nonstop during the last half-hour. i will be watching this a lot.

    what a picture!

    i am legit shocked at how bad this was so all i have is a few thought fragments

    at the 1:57 mark my cat stepped on my apple tv remote and shut off hbo max and at first i was mad but after seeing the last 35 minutes of the movie i realized she was just trying to help

    i think the title refers to the last time we would've thought the movie's special effects looked good

    it doesn't feel…
