  • Free Solo

    Free Solo

    ★★★

    Crazy men sure are crazy.

  • If Beale Street Could Talk

    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★½

    More like a painfully melancholy ballad than your average drama. A beautiful and brutal achievement.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★½

    Like a bad paperback tie-in novel.

  • The Rider

    The Rider

    ★★★★

    A beautiful tone poem.

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★

    The best Spider-Man movie by far, and also probably one of the best computer animated movies ever.

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★½

    An incredibly elaborate log flume ride.

  • Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★★

    Not nearly as artful, bold or thoughtful as the original, but reasonably solid.

  • Holiday

    Holiday

    ★★★★★

    My favorite Christmas movie.

  • Bel Canto

    Bel Canto

    ★★½

    Not a failure, but Weitz can’t seem to do more than just glance over the emotional depths of the story. Anxious editing doesn’t help, either.

  • Mary Poppins Returns

    Mary Poppins Returns

    ★★

    Lethargic.

  • Searching

    Searching

    ★★★★

    As a guy who designs user interfaces for a living, not even I could imagine that they could tell a truly compelling feature film-length story, much less make me cry.

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite

    ★★★★

    A master class in manipulation.
