    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    Top Gun: Maverick is an exhilarating thrill-ride, with edge-of-your-seat action that doesn’t let up. They put the audience right in the thick of it all.

    Even those of us who weren’t around for the first film, the movie is dripping with nostalgia. The ground-level story isn’t anything to write home about, but it doesn’t matter once the planes hit the air.

    Whether you’re a fan of the original or not, you’ll be blown away by this visceral triumph. The most thrilling action we’ve seen in ages. See this on a BIG screen. An immersive, must-see blockbuster.

  • Men

    Men

    ★★★½

    It’s hard to find the words for Men, a disturbing, surreal horror flick that immerses you in an everyday nightmare. It’s also a layered character study, made more effective through brilliant performances.

    Buckley holds the film together, bringing truth to both the story and the physiological terror. Kinnear is terrifying and weird in all the best ways.

    Few can craft an atmosphere like Alex Garland, and it’s the best thing about Men. It’s nearly too enigmatic for its own good, but gives so much to simmer on.

    For a multiverse movie, this felt weirdly contained, and honestly a little forgettable.

    Elizabeth Olsen always shines as Wanda, and Cumberbatch has plenty to play with in these universes. There are flairs of Raimi’s style from time to time, and this is the closest we may…

    Scream

    ★★★½

    Scream is a legacy sequel for the Letterboxd generation.

    Brutal kills, stellar new cast, and all the self-referential discourse we love. Tackling toxic fandom and reboot culture is no easy task, and Scream nails it. There’s tons of ridiculous stuff here, as with any good horror movie, but this movie knows exactly what it’s trying to be. Over the top, twisty, and a lot of fun.

    Melissa Barrera continues to impress. She’s a perfect lead to take the mantle of…
