  • Avatar: The Way of Water

    Avatar: The Way of Water

    ★★★★

    Despite its flaws, Avatar: The Way of Water is a step up from its predecessor, and boasts a more likeable (albeit more absent) Jake Sully, a more emotional climax, and an even bigger canvas for James Cameron and his 194746282 VFX artists to paint on. 

    This is one of those times where it’s hard to separate the film itself from the cinematic experience. Obviously it’s visually dazzling and the worldbuilding that’s gone into this is all-consuming (and for once the 3D…

    The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

    ★★★½

    Heartwarming and funny with a festive soundtrack, including an original, tongue in cheek song, it’s nice to spend time with the Guardians again in a sentimental story featuring some fun Easter eggs harking back to previous characters and moments.

    A good time but unlikely to live long in the memory.

    Evan Peters nails Dahmer’s mannerisms and portraya him super creepy without making him cartoonish or one-dimensional, but yet also without asking us to sympathise with him. I’ve heard the argument that by showing Dahmer’s background, that is making…

    Avatar

    ★★★½

    I know a lot of people think the time for the Avatar sequels has passed, but I actually think the timing couldn’t be better. With people becoming tired of all the MCU and Star Wars content, they will be looking for a new franchise to latch onto, and if Cameron plays his cards right, this could be it.

    Avatar is obviously a visual banquet and broke a lot of ground, technologically-speaking, but it does feel like something’s missing. Maybe it’s the…
