    ★★★★

    This year’s ‘Paterson’, Lucky is a beautiful little movie, and a fantastic, fitting film for the legendary Harry Dean Stanton to go out on. He gives a brilliant performance.
    As an atheist this movie resonated with me extremely deeply, and gave me a whole lot to think about.
    Also shout out to my man John Carroll Lynch for nailing his directorial debut, and my other man David Lynch for playin an old dude sad about his turtle who ran away.

    See this fucking movie, it’ll warm you up and give you a lot to talk about.

    All this fire, yet the hottest thing in this movie was Jeff Bridges singing.
    (Jennifer Connelly being a close 2nd).

    In all seriousness, this was fucking fantastic. Peter Berg movies are starting to spawn their own genre of really well-done and emotional disaster flicks.
    The characters are great, the script is great, it's thoroughly interesting from start to finish and it's full of great performances, with the standouts being Miles Teller (here's hoping he's back), Josh Brolin and Jennifer Connelly.

    It's so good that it made me forget that Tom Cruise was even in The Mummy.

    I'm so damn disappointed.

    I don't know where to begin. I guess to match the film, this review is gonna be a mess.

    Let's start with the heroes. They were okay. WB made a fundamental mistake in choosing not to give any of them their own movies to develop, outside of Superman, Wonder Woman, and to some extent Batman. Because of this, the first act of this movie is incredibly rushed, and we really don't get to know the likes…
