    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★★

    It takes some time to ease into the film’s approach, but it’s ultimately worth it for an affecting (and sometimes unconventional) story and Tom Hanks’s sublime portrayal of a childhood icon. 8.5/10

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★★

    Rian Johnson’s brilliantly entertaining whodunnit stands as both a gushing love letter to the murder-mystery genre and an entry that’s not afraid to break the rules in order to surprise us again and again. The cast is phenomenal, a menagerie of top-notch character actors having the time of their lives. 9.5/10

    Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium

    ★★★

    Though it practically drowns in its own whimsy and familiarity, the charmingly sincere performances just barely manage to keep it afloat. 6/10

  • The Matrix

    The Matrix

    ★★★★

    Though it might be a touch dated in spots, The Matrix still holds up as a stellar example of visual storytelling. 8.5/10
