    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★

    I would be happy if the DCEU only made Wonder Woman films from now on.  Seriously, what other superhero film incorporates diversity in such a meaningful way. Gal Gadot kicks ass, there are no weak female characters, her diverse supporting team all play key roles throughout every stage of their mission, and the film even takes a brief moment to bring attention to issues such as appropriation of indigenous land and PTSD.

    All of this while still being a fun…

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    Have not seen the original version yet (only watched Logan Noir), but this film may replace X2 as my favourite X-Men related movie. While the franchise as a whole as been a mixed bag, this film finally figured how to utilize Wolverine in a truly captivating way. It is nice to see a superhero film where the action is secondary to the story and emotion.

    ★★★

    I kind of wish the film had just focused on Jack White. I found him to be the most interesting of the three.

    Killer Joe

    ★★★★½

    Trashy and surprising all at the same time. Feels more like a play at times than a film, but the performances are fantastic. Killer Joe is not a film that cannot easily be recommended to most people. However, those willing to take a risk are in for an experience they will not soon forget.
