  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One

    ★★★★

    Incredibly moving late-period auteur stuff going on here--Spielberg reckoning with life and legacy.

    70mm print looked fab and the analog snap of changeover marks brought this movie together in a lovely way.

  • Annihilation

    Annihilation

    ★★★★

    Enjoyed this and it got me pretty excited for more Marvel crossovers. Seeing Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) alongside Wong (Benedict Wong) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) on screen gave me hope that someday Poe Dameron and Daisy Domergue might find their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (yes, I know Oscar Isaac was in an X Man movie but that does not count).

    Also, as someone who read the novel, I was completely down with this as an adaptation. Hope the other books in trilogy get as good of a treatment.
