    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    Top Gun: Maverick is a film that headbutts the concept of the so-called "legacy sequel" right in its fucking face.

    What filmmaker Joseph Kosinski has assembled here is a film that has taken my breath away.

    What could have easily been another uninspired studio-produced piece of filmmaking destined to cruise (see what I did there) entirely within a low altitude level for the duration of its flight has instead turned out instead to be an utterly stunning cinematic gamechanger that…

    X

    ★★★★

    X marks the spot for filmmaker Ti West's biggest hit yet, surpassing the one he delivered to Greta Gerwig's head in his 2009 film, The House of the Devil.

    Note: If you haven't seen that film, please accept my apologies for revealing spoilers. Having said that, can you really blame me for putting that as the first line of my review of this film, seeing how fantastic it is? The shit was just too good to pass up.

    In any…

    Elvis

    ★★★

    Following a nine-year sabbatical, filmmaker Baz Luhrmann returns with a far too stylish picture for its own good.

    It's ostentatious, hasty, chaotic, untidy, and self-indulgent.

    And who would have guessed that would wind up being the case?

    Oh, I don't know, just about fucking everyone on planet earth who has ever seen Nicole Kidman in a corset before.

    Anyway, enough about Keith Urban's wife for now (sorry to my buddy, Christian, the biggest stan of the Kid Man known to…

    The Black Phone

    ★★★½

    With their new film, The Black Phone, Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill (formerly known as "Carlyle" from his previous tenure as a film reviewer with Spill.com) return to the horror genre to conjure up a spell that will have the entire world feeling as terrified of seeing Ethan Hawke as it is for his ex-wife Uma Thurman. 

    Anyway, despite its shortcomings, The Black Phone is, in my opinion, a really enjoyable genre picture that follows in the footsteps of…

    The Tax Collector

    This just goes to show that David Ayer is definitely the kind of guy who would unironically still wear those types of airbrushed graffiti t-shirts which has a Looney Tunes character dressed as a gangster on it.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★

    Riddle me this, Riddle me that, who's afraid of the big Soy-Boy Emo like Bat?

    The Batman is director Matt Reeves' inventive new take on The Caped Crusader. This neo-noir detective story pits the "World's Greatest Detective" against a world of total and utter depravity, correlating him with villains such as The Riddler, The Penguin, Catwoman, and Carmine Falcone to create a cinematic experience unlike any other of the same crime-fighting hero we've seen on screen numerous times before.

    Okay,…
