But who is the dreamer?
This might be slightly biased because I’ve just got out of an IMAX screening but I am speechless. That was absolutely insane.
Top Gun: Maverick outperforms it’s predecessor in every single department whilst simultaneously paying homage to it and being nostalgic when it has to be. The characters are brilliantly casted and that final act was so immersive it had me completely glued to the screen, almost shaking. Genuinely some of the most groundbreaking sequences I’ve ever seen on film.…
“What’s black and blue and dead all over?”
The hype is 100% justified here. Matt Reeves’ take on Batman might just be the most original and most stylish so far. Paul Dano is absolutely incredible as The Riddler, a pure psychopath born straight out of the reddit era. Robert Pattinson is also my new favourite Batman, a truly traumatised loner who’s got bottles of rage locked up within him. The whole cast really does nail it.
My only minor issues…
This could’ve been nothing other than Neo & Trinity sat in a crack den for 3 hours popping red pills and I’d still love it. It’s way too nostalgic for me and that’s exactly what Lana has delivered here.
Yeah it’s far from perfect and it has a couple of cringe jokes here and there which never usually land with me, but honestly I couldn’t care less because simply put, it’s just cool as fuck.
