    A.I. Artificial Intelligence

    ★★★★★

    Steven Spielberg’s mid stage masterpiece. It’s not my favorite of his films, but it is in my top three—a huge jump from when I called it the worst of his films that had received classic status. I’ve gone back to that review and added a disclaimer that says I don’t agree with any of it anymore, which makes me feel…better, but knowing I went so goddamn harsh on it makes my original review really hard to read. All I know…

    The Matrix

    ★★★½

    As excited as I was to revisit The Matrix, especially after buying a 4K Blu-ray box set of all four movies (not a purchase I regret, by the way), it did come with the acknowledgement that I may have to revisit one of my biggest unpopular opinions. I just think this film is okay. Or at least I used to…but it’s grown on me, just a little bit. I looked back at my old review while watching the film, and…

    Uncharted

    ★★★

    It is imperative that everyone reading this understands that I’ve never played any of the games in this franchise, I know absolutely nothing about any of these characters or plotlines or objects or anything. And with all that in mind, I had a pretty good time with Uncharted. It is NOT a masterpiece, it’s not the best family action adventure movie by any means. It is generic, it is vague, and it still worked for me based mostly on charm.…

    Gremlins 2: The New Batch

    ★½

    Calling myself a horror fan while not enjoying Joe Dante feels weird and wrong on principle. Maybe it’s just the Gremlins films, I don’t know, it probably is, but I just struggle to latch onto anything here. I don’t know if I would say the horror angles ever work for me, neither scaring me nor even moving the needle for me. As for the comedy angle…I mean, I can certainly appreciate some of the wackiness, it’s not completely lost on…

    To talk about Dear Evan Hansen is to talk about Pan’s Labyrinth. In the months before the release of this film, people all over the Internet marveled at how Ben Platt looked in the promotional material for the film. Marveled at how bad he looks, I mean. A lot of people were talking about him by saying he looked like he was forty, or that he looked like he was sick, or that he looked like he had an…
