    Toy Story 4

    ★★★★★

    What a beautiful film. The underlying compassion and empathy this movie immediately points to sets the tone for the rest of the film. Gorgeous detail in the animation. This is Ton Hanks’ best vocal performance since the first film (or more consistent with the first film). Legitimately funny moments come in spurts, particularly from the performances of Keagan Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Keanu Reeves. Best performance goes to Annie Potts, who plays Bo just as one would remember her, only with a little Indiana Jones mixed in. This is a wonderful addition to the franchise (and a nice place to stop).

    ★★★

    The directing got sloppy at times and the extended Live Aid sequence seemed a bit rushed. Watch this film for the acting, though! Rami is a revelation as Freddie Mercury.

    Heart wrenching yet cunning character study. Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson are ice cold in the best way, and James Ivory knows how to work that angle with them. Christopher Reeve gives possibly his best performance that is quiet yet commanding. This is absolutely Ivory/Merchant at their best.

    ★★★★

    Sardonically funny and chill-inducingly creepy. Jordan Peele pulls out all the stops in both writing and directing to make you feel as uncomfortable (but not necessarily scared) as possible. It’s exciting that he’s out there making films like this.
