    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★½

    The Matrix franchise might be one of the weirdest and most unique. Bold even. The first is a sci-fi juggernaut that creeped up on the cultural zeitgeist and completely turned the movie business upside down. It's bullet time concept was parodied, copied, and milked to oblivion for years.

    Before I state my opinion on Resurrections, I must acknowledge the value of the Wachowski's. They have the backing and imagination to make the films they want to make. Whether they connect…

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    Perhaps the most secretive plotline ever, No Way Home delves into uncharted territory with irresistible possibilities. But you can throw all the fan service/easter eggs you want, but you still have to turn out a quality film. Luckily the latest web-slinger tale is just that.

    I'll admit I had a similar reaction coming out of H2018 as I did Kills. BUT...the big difference here is my expectations were far lower due to my feeling settling in for the first movie.

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★½

    Zack Snyder's Justice League is a lesson in proper handling of a story, especially in terms of editing, pacing, character building, and even cinematography. It just feels more cohesive. And the 4 hour runtime only benefits it (Snyder has included convenient chapter points).

    If you're a fan of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, you will definitely be happy as it rounds out the story quite well and offers possibilities to move forward.
