    Incredibles 2

    ★★★★

    *WARNING: Go to this film during the day at your own peril. There are swarms of tiny children at each viewing*

    After 14 long years The Incredibles are back! The second installment certainly does not disappoint. Mr. Incredible is still throwing punches, Elastigirl is stronger than ever. Jack-Jack, Jack-Jack is the star of the show! And amidst the inordinate number of super-hero films The Incredibles remain original. There's really nothing that I could say to add to your excitement. Just go see it.

    ★★★½

    Perhaps the most racist animation in awhile. The twist was rough.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    ★★★

    It's not that Dead Men Tell No Tales is a bad film, it's just that it has no original content. Most of the film feels like a rehash of the original, with a new Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightly. The plot is essentially the same: a curse needs to be broken, familial ties are involved in solving this curse, and Jack Sparrow is particularly infamous and yet simultaneously unknown to many of the characters.

    Quite frankly, the charm has run…

  • The Tree of Life

    The Tree of Life

    ★★★★★

    "The nun's taught us there were two ways through life, the way of nature and the way of grace". Tree of Life explores existence. It explores life spirituality, and meaning. It' doesn't boast any explanations, but rather ideas to ponder and wrestle with. Malick attempts to capture the beauty and darkness of the world. He does so in one of the most beautifully visually appealing films ever. If you can spend 2 hours pondering life and existence, then this film is a must see. If you're just here to be entertained stay away. Watching this movie is a religious experience.
