    Mother!

    ★★★½

    Mother Nature in a constant struggle with the power of God.

    Darren Aronofsky's "Mother!" is completely overwrought and becomes filled to the brim with ridiculous imagery that largely ends up falling to connect into a singular vision.

    But while this acid arthouse film does not entirely congeal, one has to respect and admire Aronofsky for being so fearless in his creative vision. When has a film like this been released to mainstream audiences in recent memory?

    Love it or hate it, "Mother!" reminds us just how limitless cinema can be.

    Goldie Hawn is the only reason I'm even giving this two stars.

    ★★★★

    "Wonder Woman" is not only the best DCEU film so far, it's a fantastic film on its own merits. It hardens back to classic action adventure films.

    Does it drag in spots? Sure. Is the third act a bit too bombastic? Sure.

    However, these are small criticisms in a movie that's largely fantastic. The movie is layered with the harsh truths of this world but also a lovely veil of compassion and love.

    Patty and Gal, thank you for this.
