    Leaving Las Vegas

    ★★

    The direction is heavy handed, the music choices are obnoxious and the actors (as good as they are) are burdened with creating emotional weight the screenplay doesn’t contain.

    Ma

    ★★

    Too slow a burn with too little payoff. Octavia Spencer tries her best to make it work, but doesn’t end up having all that much to do.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★

    The action is thrilling, absurd and expertly choreographed and the evolving mythology carries the the film through some of its more padded sequences.

  • Fast & Furious 6

    Fast & Furious 6

    ★★★

    More of the same wonderful silliness established in the previous installment and featuring the franchise’s best set pieces. Manages to deliver absurdity while still feeling (mostly) grounded.
