    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★½

    This is one of those movies that washes over you and completely immerses you in the world it creates. It's true to its 80's vision of the future setup in the original film, but still manages to feel believably futuristic from a 2017 perspective.

    Deakins's cinematography here is gorgeous. The soundtrack is wonderfully moody and atmospheric. It's not quite Vangelis, but it's close enough.

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    This movie couldn't have come out at a better time. We need this movie, maybe now more than ever. I couldn't help but get caught up in the emotional themes, and there's some remarkable film craft on display as well. It's easily one of the best films of the year.

    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★★½

    I had such a fun time with this movie! I might need to see it again just to see if there were jokes I missed while laughing. It's endlessly clever and witty and hilarious. Easily the best batman movie since The Dark Knight, arguably the most entertaining ever, and certainly the funniest. I mean that as a compliment to this film as well as a slight to DC's more recent efforts.
