  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    Those crazy bastards actually gave Rob Eggers a big budget..

    And the result is a violent, barbaric, and striking piece of cinema. Eggers does a good of transporting you to the time his period pieces are set in. And the brutal ‘The Northman’ is no exception. We are introduced into man’s violent and savage nature. 

    This sometimes trippy piece from Eggers is not for the faint of heart. But those willing to take the ride, will not regret it.

  • Erin Brockovich

    Erin Brockovich

    ★★★★

    “It’s like David vs that other guy”

    Easy to see why Julia Roberts is a star and won a Oscar for this role. Her charisma and dramatic chops are showcased in this funny and moving Soderbergh biographical legal drama. Overall a good movie and not just a star vehicle for Roberts. Albert Finney and Aaron Echart provide a strong supporting cast helped by a good screenplay.

    Its nice to see people who get screwed over by huge companies get their justice. Props to the real Erin Brockovich.

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★

    Marvel Studios continues its Phase 4 theme of fucked up families and overcoming broken homes like Black Widow before it. 

    But Destin Daniel Cretton’s action packed entry might contain the most thrilling action sequences in the whole MCU. Hong Kong superstar Toney Leung making his US debut, plays an intriguing villain and has the acting chops to back it. 

    The reliance on the MCU formula and over use of CGI in the third act brings this down a little but still this is another entertaining and winning MCU entry with some Asian soul and heart to it.

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★½

    David Lowery’s eerie and haunting retelling of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Unknown. Filled with some of my favorite camera shots, cinematography and score of the year so far. 

    Anchored by a strong performance by Dev Patel and featuring some delicious supporting roles from past A24 veterans Alicia Vikander and Joel Edgerton. 

    While it goes over familiar themes of being honest and staying honorable, Lowery does a masterful
    spin of it. With this and Ghost Story, Lowery films are more like experiences which I enjoy. One of the years best so far.
