    "Fear is a tool."

    Goddamn this movie is slick. With the best plot to date of any of the "Batman" movies, this latest one comes so quickly on the heels of Snyder's attempt and dives recklessly into the dark, noir side of the world's greatest detective.

    It presents a complex and gripping murder mystery that actually has Batman conducting more of the puzzle-solving side of his lore. But the action is also there, and it's splendid, extremely well choreographed, and…

    "Do you feel held by him? Does he feel like home to you?"

    Director's Cut

    A masterpiece. A slow, creeping sense of unease pervades this sunlit-yet-dark tale of grief, isolation, and family. Aster has constructed such a film that deserves many rewatches - as difficult as that may be sometimes - simply for the insane amount of detail inserted into nearly every shot. Along with Pogorzelski and Svensson, Aster provides an entire, lush world in Hårga full of history and…

    "You're stuck to this corner like a street light"

    Chu seems to have a good eye for filmmaking. Sure, he's done a few that have not received many favorable reviews, but either he is learning a lot with his recent films, or something was holding him back before.

    And his collaborating with Brooks behind the camera is doing wonders, as the cinematography on "In the Heights" is easily one of its strongest points.

    Choreography is another plus, showcasing many, many,…

    "Good is not a thing you are, Kamala. It is a thing you do."

    Wow, this show is a mess. Stylistically it's all over the place, unable to decide if it's "Scott Pilgrim" or an MCU formulaic origin story.

    The story jumps from one thing to the next until it's all a convoluted jumble by the end, and as it leaps from one "section" of the story to the next, it abandons any sense of logic and relies so much…

    Fools Rush In

    I can't help it. I like this dumb movie. I like Perry, I love Hayek. I like the manic comedy, I love how it's such a time capsule, and I love the setting. It's definitely a mediocre, run-of-the-mill rom-com, complete with no-doubt hilarious rump injuries, but it feels like a hug from an old friend.

    "House Atreides accepts!"

    Brilliant. This feels big. No, this feels huge - enormous. This feels like an event, an important film that will be remembered. But that's Villeneuve for you. The dialog is incredible. A great script that helps the viewer understand all of the deep, deep Herbert lore that's pushed upon them in the first 30 minutes.

    The cast is absolutely stacked. Chalamet does okay, but doesn't stand out quite as much for a protagonist, with the exception being…
