    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I can't tell if the artfulness of the reboot is actually the most stunning aspect of this movie?

    While my ten-year-old self wanted this time traveling saga back in the day, instead, I got a solid, modern X-men flick with a little too much Jennifer Lawrence and not enough Michael Fassbender. Eh, who am I kidding? There's never enough Michael Fassbender.

Survival is a dirty game, and this film shies away from nothing.

    While director Gareth Edwards finds beauty in…

    If Upstream Color confounds you with too few details, Primer baffles you with an abundance of them. Yet, never have I enjoyed being so befuddled in recent memory. By the end, I too want to go back in time smarter and more insightful to experience this unique film again, and again.
