  • Incredibles 2

    Incredibles 2

    ★★★

    There's no getting around the fact that The Incredibles 2 was not inspired, but obligatory, and that's prevalent in every abrupt focal shift throughout the movie. 

    It doesn't feel like the kind of sequel that's been waiting in development purgatory for 15 years, but instead, the kind that would have been rushed out as quickly as possibly to capitalize on the success of the first movie, with numerous sequel ideas that were all crammed in, but left to sit without…

  • Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

    Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

    ★★★★

    The best Wonder Woman movie of 2017.

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★½

    Pretty much everything you see here is what you remember about the original Star Wars movies, except the stormtroopers actually manage to occasionally hit what they're aiming at.

    The practical effects look excellent and the cinematography is wonderful, there's some colorful new characters and there's a few plot developments I'm looking forward to seeing resolved in future installments, the only problem is the fact that it never seems to move beyond how cool it is that we're finally getting to…
