    Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny


    Went in with low expectations given the Cannes reviews and 4's awfulness, but I had a great time. Despite time travel being an annoying plot device and a slight overreliance on CGI in chase scenes that go on for too long, it's still loads better than aliens and swinging with CGI monkeys.

    Way better than tech biopics have any need to be, but script still feels a little rushed and thematically undercooked.

    How to Blow Up a Pipeline


    Well directed and works great as a heist/thriller genre piece, but its characters are underwritten and one dimensional

  • Nope



    Masterfully constructed genre elements but thematically and narratively underdeveloped
