    Sicario: Day of the Soldado


    A competent imitation of the first, but no matter how hard it bites, it lacks the teeth to draw blood. Savage with nothing new to say.

    Deeply felt filmmaking, Granik fills every frame with stunning empathy. There's never a doubt these are real people, in real places, navigating real pain.

    Ready Player One


    Wall-to-wall nostalgia can't distract from this soulless spectacle's two-dimensional characters and underdeveloped storytelling. While there are some thrilling sequences (i.e. the opening race and that genius visit to The Overlook Hotel), outside of the Oasis it can't unstick itself from dated blockbuster sap. And don't get me started on the score. Frankly, one of Spielberg's worst.

    Black Panther


    Coogler proves he's the real deal, turning in a vibrant, politically charged dose of escapism. A superhero movie that matters.
