    Do the Right Thing

    ★★★★

    Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing is an ambitious, necessary, and masterful film. From the opening shot, it is clear that Lee's has a singular vision that he will execute to the fullest. The film begins with actress Rosie Perez owning the screen as she dances to "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy. The scene is brilliant because the viewer is immediately drawn into the vibrant colors and electrifying energy that Perez exerts. The song choice indicates that Lee is interested…

    Midsommar

    ★★★★½

    Midsommar grabs hold of you almost immediately and does not let you go for the entire 2.5 hours. The runtime is definitely bold, but this film never wanes.

It’s clear just from the stills that he is absolutely on top of his craft right now. The performances are stellar. Gosling and Ford are great as expected, but Ana de Armas shines…

    ★★

    avoided this one for a while after reading lots of negative reviews but with all the awards buzz it’s getting and recent Globe win, I felt like I had to see what the hype was about. I’m not mad that I saw it, but I definitely agree with all the negative press I’ve read about the movie. First off, the script is atrocious. I was actually pretty shocked with how downright stupid the script is at points. The first half…
