    ★★★

    LOTS of potential that felt kinda wasted, but most of all it’s just a bit of a slog and not as fun as it should be.

    IMAX sequences rock though and will probably be some of the coolest visual sequences of the year.

  • Ratatouille

    Ratatouille

    ★★★★★

    The music! Anton Ego! The blocking! Dolly zooms! The editing! The handheld camera! Long takes! The music! Ian Holm’s performance! The physical comedy! Pull focus shots! Skeleton typewriter! Coffin-shaped office! The lighting! The music! The end monologue!

    Did I mention the music?
