    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

    ★★★

    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.
