  • 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.

  • Searching



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

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite


    A master class in manipulation.

  • The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs


    Two furstrated novelists put on a short film festival.

  • Widows



    The universe corrects for “Ocean’s 8” and 2016’s “Ghostbusters”—magnificently.

  • Random Harvest

    Random Harvest


    Pure Hollywood pablum—but so expertly and exquisitely crafted, it's irresistible. Despite all my intellectual detachment, I sobbed shamelessly at the end.

  • The Right Stuff

    The Right Stuff


    Rounded up from like 3.75 stars. Riddled with expository dialogue but so much else is done right, from the structure to the cinematography to the sound.

  • Red Beard

    Red Beard


    Grabs you by the heartstrings and doesn’t let go for three hours.

  • Lady Bird

    Lady Bird



  • Jack Reacher

    Jack Reacher


    This movie gets better every time I watch it.

  • First Reformed

    First Reformed


    WWJD? He’d drive right to the theater and watch the heck out of this summer blockbuster!
