    Lightyear

    ★★★½

    Chris Evans plays a military man who finds himself transported decades into his future and is then forced to battle a giant purple alien voiced by an actor with the surname of Brolin. 

    In all seriousness, Pixar have nailed Buzz’s origin story. While not a tear jerker like all 4 Toy Storys, Lightyear is a fun, fast ride that will put a smile on all faces. 

    Kudos to the writers and Chris Evans for retconning some classic Buzz one liners so that the first Toy Story will now be seen in a new light.

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    It’s 1986 all over again. Tom Cruise rules the box office, everyone wants to be a fighter pilot (Naval Aviator) and all the car stereos will have the Top Gun Anthem and Kenny Loggins blaring!
    I feel the need, the need, for speed!!

    Well it took "them" 3 movies to get it right but finally we have this masterpiece. Hugh has never been better. I rolled a tear. 😢

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★★

    Not since Christopher Reeve first played Superman has an actor truly embodied a superhero, until now. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is earnest and believable. Is the film perfect? no, but it's few flaws are easily forgotten by the obvious heart and soul poured into this movie. Long live DC. 
    PS: The world needs a prequel/spin off movie focused on the Amazons and starring Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen.
