    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

    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
