    ★★★½

    Like Winter Light had a baby with Taxi Driver with a take your breath away ending like Phoenix. Wow.

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★½

    *Very Ving Rhames voice* "My man!"

    Best finale in the series.

    Why? Why did I watch this? For whatever reason I find almost all of Dreyer's films infuriating, chock full of insufferable characters with few or no redeeming characteristics- this is one of those movies. And the ending? Fuck. That. Noise. Go watch The Passion of Joan of Arc instead, THAT is a great movie.

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★½

    Ummmmm, this is spectacular?

    The production design is gorgeous at every gritty, rain-soaked turn.
    The lighting is a character unto itself. Literally.
    The sound design is amazing.
    Harrison Ford has never been better.
    Jared Leto is genuinely unnerving.
    Robin Wright is magnificent.
    Ryan Gosling takes on the perpetually-beaten gumshoe archetype like it was made for him.
    The visuals on the digital overlay sex scene alone deserve an Oscar.
    And ROGER FREAKIN DEAKINS.

    Splendiferous.
