    ★★★★½

    Truly exhilarating.

    Despite familiar story beats and catering to an audience that more or less knows how this will go, the actual experience is something to behold.

    Breathtaking visuals, seat shaking sound design, and a score that accompanies you to the highest heights.

    See it on the biggest screen possible and enjoy the ride!

    I need to rewatch this to affirm my thoughts and out of respect for Alex Garland I'm willing to give it another go

    A jaw-dropping, visual feast for the senses.

    The fantastic spectacle is enough to dazzle its way into your soul but the driving force is its passionate performers.

    Every gaze, whisper, and growl has intent no matter the length of screentime.

    Soul-stirring, riveting and exciting in every way.

    Bravo Mr. Villenueve!

  • Blue Bayou

    Blue Bayou

    ★★★★

    A devastatingly bleak character study that shines a solemn light on the deficiencies of the US adoption system.

    Emotional highs and lows include an endearing look at the perseverance of 1st and 2nd generation Asian Americans in America as well as the dark culture clash and conflict that unfortunately may bring.

    Although a little uneven in its pacing, powerful performances by writer/director Justin Chon & Alicia Vikander bring home a message worth delivering. One that challenges the darkness underlying America's government and the communities within its borders.
