    Elvis

    ★★★★

    After hearing a multitude of mixed reviews for Elvis, I knew it was something I had to see for myself. Having been introduced to Baz Luhrmann only through The Great Gatsby, I wasn't quite sure how I'd receive his direction this time around. Thankfully, I'm pleased to report that his style worked for me so much more this time around.

    Maybe I’m just caught up in the moment, but this might even be my favorite MCU movie, period. It’s that good. It was the perfect balance between the grounded, stand-alone films like Ant-Man and the…
