    Dune

    ★★★★

    Was blessed to have seen this at the US Premiere in NYC (with Villeneuve & Zimmer in attendance!), and it pleases me to say that DUNE is incredible. With gargantuan scope and a masterful vision, it’s this generation’s fantasy classic on the level of STAR WARS & LORD OF THE RINGS. An unforgettable experience of epic proportions, Villeneuve cements himself as a true master to result in the best blockbuster of the year. 

    Structurally, it’s brilliant, playing into narrative conventions to craft…

    Lamb

    ★★★

    LAMB dances with various intriguing ideas and themes but fails to truly capitalize on the majority of them, unable to decide what it wants to be. Instead, it subtly chips away until a sudden climax hits that seems as if it serves only to shock and baffle audiences.

    It can’t be denied that Johannsson is a talented creative. He builds a cold, calm atmosphere that smartly makes the strange premise stick out like a sore thumb in all the right ways. …

    WOW... ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE may just be the DCEU’s BEST film yet. With an epic scope, Snyder’s vision transforms the film into a bold & stunning classical epic with heart. Ray Fisher shines too, alongside super action setpieces and a cameo that will leave you begging for more!


    I actually was quite mixed on Snyder’s previous work, but this is something special. Thanks to WB for the early screener!

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★½

    A QUIET PLACE 2 is a gripping continuation that delivers the tension & thrills of its predecessor with more ambition & mastery of the genre. With stunning sound design & impeccable editing, it makes its mark as one of the best horror sequels of all time! 

    Honestly, this may be one of the best edited films I’ve seen since THE DARK KNIGHT... In the third act, Tellefsen orchestrates the crosscutting of various concurrent sequences that masterfully ramp up the tension in a way that is reminiscent of Lee Smith’s work on TDK, Dunkirk, & more!

    Thanks to Paramount for the press screening invite!
