    On the Rocks

    ★★★★

    On the Rocks was an elegantly directed flick as what is generally reminiscent in most of Sofia Coppola’s work. Moody tunes complimenting exceptionally filmed tracking shots during the car drive/filler scenes. Funny in moments, heart-rending in others and carried comfortably by both Bill Murray and Rashida Jones.

    Coppola also focussing principally on the importance of communication above all else in a relationship/marriage. A few other plot points were thrown in but the ending to this one was never in doubt. Comfortable but subtly affecting viewing.

    ★★★★

    Elias Kotias’ Casey Jones still singlehandedly the greatest depiction of the character to date. Hands down! Still waiting for a better adaptation than this and the sequel.

    ★★★★★

    Tried so hard to find a fault in this film but it honestly proved very difficult. Logan was so far detached from the tame product marvel generally produces.

    The vulnerability shown by Logan as well as the almighty Xavier’s own ailing existence brought a welcoming human element to the experience.

    This was Jackman’s best take on Wolverine to date and probably his finest work overall as an actor.

    Jojo Rabbit

    ★★★★★

    With the German rendition of The Beatles “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” ringing through the opening shot of Jojo Rabbit, I was hooked very early on. What I wasn’t expecting however was a surprisingly exceptional and touching film. Waititi’s unique charm as a director was on full display and he knew when to turn on the humour and drama, effortlessly and beautifully balancing both themes. 

    Rockwell, Waititi and newcomer Roman Griffin Davis were great as was the rest of the cast. Top points go to Thomasin McKenzie again though, she topped what was originally her best turn in ‘Leave No Trace’ and absolutely commanded this feature.
