    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★½

    Beautiful direction and impeccable performances countered by incredibly flawed storytelling and atrocious character development. So many scenes fail to establish proper character motivations or responses that ultimately the entire thing just rings hollow - a failed experiment in creative screenwriting.

    ★★★★

    One of the best Marvel films in the universe. There is more emotion and heart in some single frames of this than there are in other entire entries from Marvel. Michael B Jordan turns in the best villain performance in any Marvel film and brings real depth and nuance to his performance. The first of the two post credit scenes may contain the most profound statement the Marvel EU has ever made.

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    Including a rare-for-Marvel memorable "villain" turn by Michael Keaton and strong supporting work by Zendaya, Laura Harrier and Jacob Batalon, Spider-Man: Homecoming rightfully skips over the origin story we've all seen before and instead focuses on the  confusing responsibility that comes with being the youngest possible member of the Avengers. Tom Holland is so good as Spider-Man that you'd be hard pressed to remember anyone else that played the character prior (sorry Tobey).

    ½

    Migraine-inducing, bombastic and insultingly cliched trash. Michael Bay's technical wizardry is buried under a suffocatingly thick layer of unbearably bad dialogue, foul-mouthed riffing and military mumbo-jumbo. Come for the excellent use of 3D, stay for the career warping Anthony Hopkins performance. Actually don't come or stay - run and hide.
