    Justice League

    ★★★½

    I will never apologize for enjoying this and that is entirely thanks to Ezra Miller. I love his Barry Allen so much. He doesn't just steal every scene he's in, he runs off with the whole movie. I enjoy the whole cast of characters honestly, and I think that's key here. The story is almost non-existent, and the villain is a pathetic non-entity, but the characters are so much fun I can pretty much enjoy it from scene to scene.…

    ★★★★½

    Everything Blade did right, Blade II does even better.

I've always excused or explained its copycatting of A New Hope as a necessary move because fans were bitter about the prequels. But, fuck fans. If this is what they brought the franchise down to, fuck them.

    All three prequels were better than this movie. They at least showed us new…

    Residue

    ★★★★

    Whenever I watch a movie, and then critique it, I usually end up with some pretty specific ideas about what I would have done differently had I been the writer, or director, etc. I think that's just par for course when you're pointing out what a movie does wrong or right. Residue might be the first movie that I'll agree is flawed, and wholly imperfect, but... I wouldn't know what to change because I absolutely enjoyed it just the way…
