    Irreplaceable You

    ★★★½

    I feel like I've seen this movie before but Michiel Huisman and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are completely charming. Also, Christopher Walken hasn't been this good in a very long time.

  • Black Panther

    Black Panther

    ★★★½

    The opening 30 mins are a little messy and the movie is about 20 minutes too long but everything else is golden. Love everything from the music to the villain which, for once, is actually interesting.

    Also, Shuri is amazing.

    Melancholia

    ★★★★

    I’ve liked, though not always enjoyed. Lars von Trier’s offerings over the past few years but for some reason, likely the combination of length and expectation, Melancholia escaped me. With his new film due for festival runs this winter, the time seemed ripe to catch up with his 2011 offering. Why did I wait so long?

    Undeniably beautiful, Melancholia is also my favourite of von Trier’s works. It’s his exploration of a woman suffering through depression on her wedding day…

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★

    I have a few issues with it - namely the motivation behind one of the central moments in the 3rd act and a too-long action sequence - but otherwise, it's a total lovefest.

    At one point, I was so joyously happy, I even got a little teary-eyed.
