    Out of Sight

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    An extremely fun heist movie which doesn’t seem to get the recognition it deserves. Certainly up there with the Ocean’s films.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Really fun for the Queen music and Rami Malek, but as a film it doesn’t really work. Bohemian Rhapsody bounces around a lot without much of a throughline. The editing in no way helps, but the cinematography’s good. The emotional aspect certainly kicks in halfway through, but the first half of the film really only survives because Queen and Freddy Mercury are so great.

    Ready Player One

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Really fun and suprisingly very funny. Ready Player One captures the Spielberg wonder, yet not without some stumbles. The first 15 minutes are almost all voice-over exposition which definitely could’ve been done another way, but once you get past that the film really finds its groove. The live-action bits are perhaps where the film shines the brightest. And the cast has tons of chemistry both in and out of the game. 

    For those worried about it simply being a nostalgia…

    You are not prepared. This movie is absolutely fucking terrifying. Like holy shit. The sound design, the characters, the emotional turmoil for both the characters and the audience. There are so many layers. 

    Yeah. Heads will roll.
