    Wonder

    ★★★

    There is no question Wonder wants to grab a hold of your heartstrings and dance you about like a marionette, but it never feels particularly manipulative. Just unambitious and conventional incapable of feeling authentic. It's a paint by numbers family weepy that due to a decent structure and likeable cast rises above its fluff to Something tolerable, even enjoyable.

    Thelma

    ★★★★½

    This was an unexpected hit with me and I think the more I go over it and reminisce the more fascinating I think it becomes. The whole "queerness as magic" metaphor has never been done with quite such emphasis on horror and its really god damn cool.

  • The Neon Demon

    The Neon Demon

    ★★★★½

    Never has there been a movie that is so vulgar and yet so audaciously beautiful. Refn's Neon Demon does everything in it's power to confront your ideas of aesthetics and completely invert them to a new classification the likes of which have not been approached since the glossy works of Dario Argento. Salacious and exploitative. Gruesome and utterly disturbing. Refn has made the type of film that makes one reconsider their taste and reevaluate what they believe is "too much"…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Straight up not a gimmick. Draining the colour adds so much to the texture of this film. It gives the makeup such definition. The vistas such imposing scope. The fire and rubble such dynamic detail. Ridding one of the more colourful action films of the past two decades of its glorious palette would seem like an exercise in futility.

    But somehow, this might be better.
