    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    One of the great pleasures that comes with a new Jordan Peele film is the aftermath of dissecting everything you just saw, going back to watch it again, and discussing all the intricate details he put in place. He is a master at crafting stories that leave an immediate impact and sparking conversation long after the credits roll. Five years since Get Out and we are still unpacking what it means to be in “the sunken place” and finding nuances…

    This is a tough one...

    I am of the belief that no movie needs to justify its own existence. People have thrown around the phrase "unnecessary" and that in itself feels like a "get out of jail free" card for people who lack the critical skills to analyze what does and doesn't work about a movie so they resort to a term that provides no insight on the quality of the movie. The only important factor is whether a movie…

    Bullet Train

    ★★½

    I can't remember the last time a movie was so actively ruined by the trailers spoiling 95% of the surprises and theaters playing those trailers before every movie imaginable for five months straight.

    If it wasn't for the convoluted storytelling and David Leitch's pandering style of direction, Bullet Train would be a much more entertaining movie. That being said, the cast give it their all (I loved Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Brian Tyree Henry in this) and there are enough moments…

    Saw it for a third time in IMAX before Bullet Train steals my precious Lincoln Square away from this masterpiece.

    If you haven't already read my spoiler-filled review of the movie, click here.

    I've seen nearly a hundred movies at the Lincoln Square IMAX over the course of the past 16 years and Nope delivers one of the top five greatest experiences I've ever had at this theater. Flawless use of the 1.43:1 aspect ratio.

    Ay Dios mío, where to begin....

    Okay, so before I let myself go crazy, let's start with the good.

    Janusz Kamiński's cinematography is truly ravishing. Every frame oozes vibrant color and kinetic energy. That, combined with the stunning choreography that lives up to the high bar of the 1961 original, make for some dazzling sights. "The Dance at the Gym" and "America" are the most significant standouts.

    The ensemble overall, with one notable exception, deliver strong performances. David Alvarez, Rita…

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    After the first solo Wolverine film being one of the worst superhero films ever made and the second film being moderately entertaining at best, I am beyond ecstatic with how much I loved "Logan." It's a bold, risk-taking superhero film with high stakes, real consequences, and genuine character drama. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart give the best performances they've ever given in these roles and James Mangold fulfills the promise of delivering the hard-R rated, violent Wolverine film that fans have wanted for so long. This is the best superhero film I've seen in a long time.
