    The Da Vinci Code

    ★★½

    Maybe the real Holy Grail was Tom Hank's long hair and bad French accents...

    Sandler re-makes the Philly underdog trope in the tradition of Rocky, Invincible and Creed, but attempts to cut out all that unnecessary "boring talking" "character development" and "plot" in favor of motivational training scenes. It's highlight reel seratonin... and it kinda works?

    Anyway, I can't give any movie about Philly less than 4 stars. Sue me.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is a REALLY COOL superhero movie. Somehow, Reeves is able to balance scenes of well-paced action with a true mystery story. Batman the detective was just as apparent as Batman the crime fighter, and I appreciated that a lot. Dude really went through old newspapers and did really real research to connect the dots.

    In a weird way, the film bore some striking resemblance to Incredibles 2. Someone should do a shot-for-shot comparison of Elastagirl exploring the Screenslaver's lair…

    ★★★★★

    The best film I've seen in 2 years that definitely cracks my top 10. Not exaggerating. Watching this after my first semester of college in New England was perfect timing. The story felt relatable and naturally heartwarming. Ben Affleck shines in every scene.

    Is it a secret sequel to Good Will Hunting?

    In some parallel universe, maybe Uncle Charlie is Will Hunting's best friend Chuckie Sullivan.
