    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    SEEN! This is a cloud-nine breathtaker as it watches every moment of a hotshot going through growing pains. Aerial dogfights still awe more than emotional beats, but at least the latter no longer feel bogus. All the medals for Claudio Miranda! 

    The film is easilt Joseph Kosinski’s best, all thanks to how he is open to let story (also about legacy!) inform the visuals rather than the opposite. More Only the Brave, less TR2N & Oblivion, in other words. Editors Eddie…

    ★★★★

    I believe I get the reasoning why the film may be too cold to the touch, even when if the narrative is about revenge & is aware of the internal costs.

    But the craftsmanship involved, how it stays titanic and immersive from start to end… it all gives Eggers’ work a once-in-a-blue-moon experience.


    It deserves more support & way, way less of that “bloated arthouse” discourse.

    ★★★★

    Ah, welcome to 2-plus hours of "I can't even." And that makes the film genuinely dynamite.

    May your body be ready for what's to come, which includes - not necessarily in order - character growth, more assured direction of set-pieces (albeit still too hectic at places), oh-hell-yes moments & who will not make it.

    ** One post-credits scene at the very end.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    SEEN! Everything Everywhere All At Once is a Daniels-branded clay pot where limitless ideas & limitless acceptance braise. Its components seem to be designed to enjoy when baked, but in truth they are a sobering demand that you should always see others & yourself as useful & united. The cast & action team will thrill & tickle.

    Also, the film’s world-hopping makes the one in Cloud Atlas kiddie-pool level stuff. And everything’s valid here: a tax lady going WOOOOOOOOOO Wrestlemania, a leashed pomeranian becoming a meteor/rope dart, KHQ doing WKW, etc. It’s overloaded to the nines & finds no reason to apologize!
