    ★★★★

    Villeneuve is remarkably consistent. Dune is another solid sci-fi outing in his catalog and manages the honestly impressive feat of translating the world and characters of Herbert's novel to the big screen. The movie can be a bit exposition heavy at times, but is generally well-paced and sets up part two in a satisfying way.

    Didn't enjoy this one, but I have immense respect for Clint Eastwood remaining active this late in his career.

    ★★½

    Remember when this series was about street racing?

    This movie is absolutely insane, completely disregards physics and reality in general, and features a mostly nonsensical and incoherent plot. Even the characters are seemingly aware of this, given some of the dialogue.

    This is not a traditionally "good" movie, but it's definitely fun. F9 has a longer runtime than it probably needs and lacks a bit of the charm that made previous entries enjoyable. But it's not a bad choice if…

    ★★★★

    "Greyhound" plays out as one long action scene. It's very clear that a great deal of care was dedicated to nailing the technical details of naval combat during the Battle of the Atlantic. The action is tense and the visual effects are largely solid. Unfortunately, viewers looking for deep characters and a meaty narrative will most likely be a bit disappointed. Definitely a movie made almost exclusively for World War 2 buffs.
