    Atomic Blonde

    Atomic BORE.

    Whatever feminist underpinnings or girl power energy the film might have had is immediately undercut by its unending, obnoxious male gaze.

    A movie so self-satisfied with its style, music cuts, and attitude, it fails to recognize the hollowness of a story it takes far too seriously. What should be a MacGuffin that pulls along the narrative becomes the anchor that sinks the entire film.

    There is no reason why this movie needs to drag on for nearly two hours.

    If I hear "the list" one more time, I'm going to freak out.

    Pete's Dragon

    ★★★★

    Disney gave director David Lowery a bunch of money and let him make an intimate, character driven movie about the relationship between a boy and his dragon. And it's really good.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    This gritty, violent, made-for-adults-and-not-for-kids spinoff has admirable ambitions, but never quite gels narratively, or hits the emotional peaks of the best movies in the “Star Wars” franchise. Stick through the wobbly first half, and you’ll be rewarded with a thrilling second half. Donnie Yen steals the whole show.
