    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    Mini Review

    Top Gun: Maverick is one of the best, most refreshing blockbusters I have seen in a very long time. Not only is it a fantastic legacy sequel to the 1986 classic, but it's a fantastic action film in general with brilliant performances and truly epic action. People sometimes get caught up in Tom Cruise's larger than life personality and forget that he is an amazing actor and producer - Top Gun: Maverick is a perfect example of this.…

    ★★★★

    Mini Review

    The magnificence of Everything Everywhere All at Once is a testament to the fact that you can take a fantastical concept such as the Multiverse and use it to tell a clever, funny and wholly original story. Some of the ideas in this film are completely absurd, yet they all contribute to a style that takes advantage of the audience's bafflement and creates an enjoyable, crazy journey that washes over you. Michelle Yeoh's character really helps to ground…

    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★½

    Mini Review

    Joel Coen's adaptation of Macbeth is worthy of the name, with fantastic performances and beautiful cinematography. If you're not a big fan of Shakespeare this might not do much for you, as it definitely lacks something to make it distinctly different and creative as a retelling. Its technical achievement justifies its existence, but aside from that, it's somewhat cookie-cutter as far as Shakespeare films go.

    ★★★

    Mini Review

    Jurassic World: Dominion is not quite the disaster that many have claimed. There is some brilliant dinosaur action and some scary sequences, plus it was fun to see the original trio of Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum return in a substantial role. However, the film completely fails to deliver on the premise that was promised. The plot is baffling. Dinosaurs happen to be living among humans, sure, but this film barely explores the idea and takes…

    ★★★★½

    Mini Review

    Aside from director Chloé Zhao's masterful camerawork, the reason that Nomadland is so amazing is that it's honest, intimate and transparent. When you watch this film, it feels like you are watching events from somebody's life - Frances McDormand's disappearance into her role also helps with this feeling. I feel pretentious using the word 'kino', but this film is what you call kino.

    Also Chloé Zhao is making a Marvel movie and I am beyond excited.

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★½

    Mini Review

    Just as we all thought Warner Bros.' DC Universe was beyond saving, James Gunn has came along and made one of the best - and most comicbookie - superhero films ever made. It's so bonkers, with absurd, gory action sequences, great music and awesome special effects (a lot of which are practical).

    The characters are a mixture of villains with complex personalities and comedy canon fodder. Some, such as King Shark (a giant shark voiced by none other…
