    Mary Poppins Returns

    ★★★½

    Some good fun and a sensational performance from Emily Blunt, but repeats so many plot points and story beats from the original, it might as well have been called Mary Poppins: The Force Awakens.

  • The Wife

    The Wife

    ★½

    As usual, Glenn is quite fantastic, and solid work from Pryce as well, but even they can't save this meandering, sloppy, poorly constructed mess of a movie.

    ★★★★½

    I've never been a teenage girl. I've never been to Sacramento. I didn't go to Catholic school. I've never been a big fan of Greta Gerwig's prior work. But this movie spoke to me so much. It's just so authenticate and human and so devoid of the cliches that permeate these kinds of movies. It takes a story that isn't unfamiliar to movie audiences and moves it in an unexpected, delightful, and incredibly insightful direction. And while Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are getting most of the attention for their performances (deservedly so, both are sensational), the entire ensemble is a delight. A must see.

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★

    A terrifically entertaining superhero flick with a commanding star performance from Gal Gadot. Some clunky cgi and the unnecessary bookends keep this from going higher, but great entertainment, and a huge step up from the other dismal efforts from the DCEU.
