    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    ★★½

    I'm a bit conflicted with this one, although I shouldn't be - the point is, I really wanted even if not love/like it, then just have a good time... time instead spent wondering what could have been if all the involved would care at least one bit.

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    Having now seen the film twice, I can confirm that it holds up and even gets better on 2nd viewing. Yes, the atrocious 3rd act (we've already seen everything there is to see in superpowered versus fights) is still there, but so are the beautiful first two. Chemistry between leads is great, the film is funny, bright and Gal Gadot is a national treasure.

    Doubt that WW will impact DCEU in any meaningful way, but it's still great WW film and fun film on it's own, and that's enough.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★½

    A perfectly executed lesson in world-building, stunt-staging, editing and non-stop suspense from the (mad) mastermind George Miller also serves as a huge middle-finger to modern-day action "products" - it's fast, brutal, violent and, at times, utterly mad.

    We needed a film like this, and we got it - I'm not sure yet if I need a sequel, I just want to see this one again (and again) to soak in all the details!

    ★★★★★

    Whoa! After losing it's mojo for a bit (Monsters University, Cars) under the heavy wing of Disney, the old Pixar is back with a vengeance with this brilliant, innovative and one-of-a-kind film!

    Animated "Oscar" is guaranteed, but is it studio's best film? It may very well be!
