    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    One of the better Marvel movies, I think. I liked the Brie Larson / Sam Jackson buddy cop thing in the first half and maybe it's just me not knowing Marvel stuff but I thought the twist of who's good and bad was a nice one. Superpowered action in this didn't reach the same thrilling heights as Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman and the Marvel brand quippiness is something I'm a bit tired of but it was still good popcorn action…

    One of the best true crime movies, and Fincher's best work.

    ★★★★★

    I was really blown away by this one, made me feel feelings I wouldn't expect a astronaut history movie would. Visually stunning, well-written, well-acted, and I think it avoided some of the cheesier traps of historical/biopic movies. A great depiction of pressure and strain and loss in both the mission side of the story and the human side. Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy are amazing in the lead roles. Just a beautiful film.

    Dragon Ball Super: Broly

    ★★★★

    One of the problems with a lot of Dragonball movies is pacing, where it seems like Goku and the gang are powering up and going through their motions without purpose. I think Dragonball Super Broly avoided that, its plot had weight and it didn't feel rushed at all. I liked the rewritten version of the Broly / Planet Vegeta origin and I liked that Broly actually felt like a rounded character instead of just a muscle head. Animation was sharp…
