    ★★★★★

    Utterly, utterly genius. Often with interconnecting ensembles, some stories are stronger than others, but with Magnolia every single thread is perfection. Some of the best editing I've seen. Writing. Soundtrack. Pacing. Acting. Just everything is flawless.

    Magnolia is about forgiveness, regret, the decisions we make and the burdens of living with them. It's about the past. It's about the present. It's about life. My biggest recommend in a while, and definitely my favourite PTA.

    ★★★★

    Probably would have been better on psychadelics, but still pretty whacky and inventive. Gonna give it another watch as well as the shorts soon.

    ★★★★½

    An excellent look at the divide between high class and popular culture and the ignorance that one is more relevant than the other is. Also an excellent way of looking at how actors will view themselves in the contexts of their popularity despite that not really being something that really matters at all.

    The cinematography style was flawless and well executed making the film flow almost as if it was the theatre.

    Wonderful picture.

    Logan

    ★★★★

    This is a story about ordinary people, with extraordinary abilities just trying to live their lives. Or in the case of Logan himself, living without even knowing why anymore. It's a road movie. It's a thriller. It's an action movie, but most of all, Logan is living proof that the superhero genre still has a hell of a lot of staying power, giving the most unique, ambitious, and risky depiction of a Superhero franchise yet.

    It's Patrick Stewart's best performance…
