  • Dunkirk



    See this in IMAX. 

    Failing that, see this on a bigass screen with intimidatingly loud speakers. 

    Failing that, smoosh your face up on the screen when the 4K Blu-ray comes out with headphones turned all the way up to 'tinnitus'.

    Failing that, get in a time machine and go to Dunkirk.

  • Moana



    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    That moment she yells I AM MOANAAAAA and dives a goddamn kilometre deep to retrieve the heart of Te Whiti was the most spine-tinglingly triumphant thing I saw last year.

    Perfectly completes the Humans Are Dumbfucks trilogy. So much to love, but it's the art direction that constantly flawed me.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming


    Great to see a superhero film where the little guy matters, the whole world/universe isn't in peril AGAIN, and without showing Uncle Ben dying for the 82nd time. It's also mega funny, drenched in syrupy likeability, and hearty teen angst sans the "YOU'RE NOT MY REAL MUM!" irritation. I wasn't big on the hard-to-see nighttime action sequences, but hey, it's a minor complaint for a film that does right by minors.
