    Ready Player One

    ★★★½

    "Oh Halliday, this is how you plan to resolve the fate of the world's most important economic resource?"

    Spiely might thinks it's another kind of dystopic horror movie, but it's really about a trillionaire destroying an entire nation's culture out of his petulant demand to be pitied.

    Chilling.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    A hyper-kinetic, retina-melting technical masterwork on the scale of Star Wars or Jurassic Park.

    But Star Wars never made me softly cry in a packed theater over a grieving father trying to talk to his son.

    I want to grab every exec by the lapels and scream: MORE LIKE THIS DAMMIT!

    I want to give Miles Morales the biggest hug.

    A fucking masterwork. Pure uncut momentum hurtling through every line, shot, and scene. Smashes together every overdone action convention since Bullitt, beats the everliving fuck out of them, wrings the remnants out into a bucket, and paints a Vermeer with it.

    Unbelievable.

    Edit 1: My current action film rankings:

    1 - Mission: Impossible - Fallout
    2 - Terminator 2: Judgement Day
    3 - Mad Max: Fury Road
    4 - Atomic Blonde
    5 - John Wick: Chapter 2
    6 - Ronin…
