    Sherlock, Jr.


    Real life always feels kind of lousy and boring after watching a Buster Keaton film, and that’s literally what SHERLOCK, JR. is about. Incredible.
    Also, this 45’ film basically contains all the best bits from the entire MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchise.

    Stunning. There's a lightness of touch to everything Keaton does here that makes the whole film feel so effervescent, it's enough to eradicate the sensations of heaviness and sluggishness usually associated with huge steam trains.

    The Batman

    Soporific, monotonous, embarrassing. Similar in some ways to Nolan’s films but with *all* edges smoothed out. Never daring to go in any particular direction or just make a decision, it ends up being a big, murky, vague nothing. No personality. No impact. It also has one of the worst shot and edited car chases I've seen in a long time.

    The Way We Were
