  • Dune



    Dune is a cinematic thunderclap. Maybe my favorite film of the year.

    Denis Villeneuve and company created a phenomenal adaptation of the first half of Herbert's work. It feels alien in the way the best sci-fi does and balances visceral violence and cruelty with resilience and hope. An absolute banger.

    Fingers crossed we'll get both Part 2 and his planned adaptation of Dune Messiah too.

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow


    Far from my favorite MCU entry, but still plenty to like for diehard fans. Florence Pugh steals the show as Yelena Belova. Putting Natasha Romanoff in the spotlight was *long* overdue, so I'm glad it finally happened.

    Black Widow's biggest nemesis isn't Taskmaster or the Red Room; it's timing. Obviously, it's a prequel, but it feels a little out of step with the rest of Phase Four. If you prefer espionage action to multiversal bureaucracy, then this will be right up your alley.
