    ★★★★½

    For the first two hours, it shows what superhero movies can do. For the last 20 minutes, it shows what every superhero movie has already done. But those first two hours are magnificent. Light on its feet but with clear stakes, romantic without being maudlin. And my god, what charisma these two leads have.

    ★★★★½

    Astonishing and complicated and heartbreaking and just gorgeous. I'm finding that female directors are wonderful not squeamish about sex and the beauty of human bodies and their imperfections and for that reason alone this movie should be celebrated. But then, my god that cast! This movie is a wonder.

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    A transcendent comic book movie that's boiling over with rage and bitterness. It both ties a bow on and undoes all the previous X-Men and Wolverine movies in a way that finally gives this undying series some closure. Hugh Jackman has never been better.

    Get Out

    ★★★★½

    A stellar debut, succeeding both as horror and satire. Jordan Peele has a long, bright future ahead of him behind the camera.
