    Mother!

    ★★★★

    I saw Mother! yesterday and I'm still mulling it over. I feel I should wait until later to write a review, but I am going to push that impulse aside. (Also, while I'm not writing about the film very specifically below, there may be mild spoilers, I'm just not sure. This movie is so odd there may be different perceptions of what a spoiler actually is in relation to this film).

    ★★★

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

    Logan Lucky is a predictable and tedious film, and one I could never suspend my disbelief toward accepting this heist would have worked.

    One of the things that makes Javier Bardem's performance so unnerving is that he is not just a hit man, he's also a serial killer. While this can't possibly be the first time such a character has been portrayed, it sure does feel original in the context of this film.

    I've never enjoyed a superhero movie more than this. While a superhero's abilities often separate him/her from the average person, this film makes the superheroes into a type of everyman. They are more easy to relate to than characters such as Superman or even Captain America.

    The casting, the special effects, the writing, the tone, everything about this film worked extremely well. I would definitely recommend this to friends--even if they are not into science fiction or superheroes.
