    The Batman

    ★★★★★

    "Fear is a tool."

    Goddamn this movie is slick. With the best plot to date of any of the "Batman" movies, this latest one coming so quickly on the heels of Snyder's attempt dives recklessly into the dark, noir side of the world's greatest detective.

    It presents a complex and gripping murder mystery that actually has Batman conducting more of the puzzle-solving side of his lore. But the action is also there, and it's splendid, extremely well choreographed, and gloriously…

    "Do you feel held by him? Does he feel like home to you?"

    Director's Cut

    A masterpiece. A slow, creeping sense of unease pervades this sunlit-yet-dark tale of grief, isolation, and family. Aster has constructed such a film that deserves many rewatches - as difficult as that may be sometimes - simply for the insane amount of detail inserted into nearly every shot. Along with Pogorzelski and Svensson, Aster provides an entire, lush world in Hårga full of history and…

    "But until I heard the voice, I'd never done a crazy thing in my life."

    What a delight, a true feel-good movie, and not immediately what one would expect from a movie called "Field of Dreams." But still a great story about regrets, second chances, and the power of innocent, childhood memories.

    The cast is wonderful, with Madigan and Jones being real standouts. Whaley is really fun with his youthful, rookie energy, and Busfield makes for a great force. The…

    "You took my brother from me!"

    "Metalocalypse" has always been this insane, darkly hilarious, brutal, and well-written parody of the rockstar lifestyle cranked up to 1,000. From the start, it toyed with fun little drops here and there of an idea, "what if the term 'metal gods' was literal?"

    And, for a few seasons, fans watched as the fictional band Dethklok stumbled and slaughtered their way through a seemingly aimless journey always strung along by secret plans, councils, plots, an…

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

    "Face your fears, Doctor Strange."

    This will be a spoiler-filled review!
    You've been warned!

    It got weird. The first "Doctor Strange" could have benefited from being weirder. Raimi came aboard, and Waldron, and they made it WEIRD.

    There is a lot of fun to be had watching this first direct sequel to that initial trip into the mystic arts of the MCU - which is wild to say given how many other movies in which we've seen Strange since. The…

    Fools Rush In

    I can't help it. I like this dumb movie. I like Perry, I love Hayek. I like the manic comedy, I love how it's such a time capsule, and I love the setting. It's definitely a mediocre, run-of-the-mill rom-com, complete with no-doubt hilarious rump injuries, but it feels like a hug from an old friend.
