    Snake Eyes

    ★★★½

    This kinda got savaged by critics at the time, didn't it? Not sure why; it's pretty basic, and Cage is very Cage-ey, but it's a solid thriller with some fun visuals and a nice tense build. I liked it.

    Granted, it's not perfect, and the romantic connection at the end is SUPER forced (and honestly kinda gross), but eh. Structurally the movie's inventive, and I liked that.

    ★★★★

    I enjoyed the hell out of this movie, the first one to really get at the core of what it means to be Batman in a long time. Honestly, though, the fact that it's a Lego movie is more distracting than beneficial. I wish it were straight animation, or better yet, live-action. Still one of the best Batman movies out there, tho.

    Bold, brash, and brilliant, Taymor's adaptation of what is probably Shakespeare's ugliest play is breathtaking and powerful. Loved it.
