    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★½

    Spectacular. Not quite convinced by the "love conquers all" aspects of the ending but everything else is solid gold. Great characters, great scenes, great writing, great politics: it's wonderful.

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    ★★★½

    A lot of fun. Slightly marred for me by a) the fact that I haven't watched any of the previous PotC films, especially given how many scenes are obviously only there to placate long-term fans, and b) the start of the third act which threatens to completely fall apart before quickly sorting itself out again. Still: a blast from start to finish which has made me know want to watch the whole series.

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    This is the first film in years which made me feel that the superhero genre still deserves to be popular. I haven't felt a film as viscerally as this since 'The Dark Knight'. Truly impactful film-making; a bit long but deeply worthwhile.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★

    Fucking fantastic: a story about bridging the gap between masculinity and emotion, told through God planets, tree babies, angry raccoons, David Hasselhoff and Electric Light Orchestra. Between this and 'Logan', the superhero genre is suddenly justifying it's existence again.
