    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I was not expecting to give this 5 stars but here we are. I’ll probably drop this down to like 4.5 once I calm down but for now, 5 stars it is.

    Holy shit, I was crying a lot throughout the entire film. From half of the dialogue being in Mandarin and the mostly authentic Chinese representation, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten RingsΒ is easily the MCU’s best since Spider-Man: Homecoming.

    Also, Tony Leung absolutely killed it and Wenwu…

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Despite the borderline exploitative depiction of rape, The Last DuelΒ deftly handles its subject matter in a Rashomon-like narrative. It’s further bolstered by a strong performance from Jodie Comer, who lends the film a degree of much-needed pathos.

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Of all the new characters to love, I didn’t think I would love Ratcatcher 2 the most.

    Already significantly better than 2016’s Suicide Squad, James Gunn’s gleefully violent iteration sees his full potential unleashed. It’s loud and it’s bombastic, but it also has a lot of heart underneath. This is one extremely fun time at the movies.
