  • Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★★★½

    2017 has so many blockbuster releases, sequels, and comic book films that it seems as if Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to one of the most popular and enjoyable films of 2015, got lost in the mix. Up until a couple weeks prior to the release I had heard little buzz about the film, and had even forgot that it was coming out late this year. That is a shame though because despite the mixed critical reception, I believe…

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★½

    Director Jon Watts' task to create a strong Spider-Man film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is an arguably harder job than most directors of this universe have had. Whereas characters like Iron Man and Thor have never been put to film, Spider-Man not only has, but has already been present in some of the genre's best films.

    Under the Skin

    ★★★★★

    ....I don't even know where to begin with this one.

  • Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    Logan defies the genre conventions and breaks the boundaries of comic book blockbusters. Whereas most of these films, including the X-Men ones, are filled with hope and optimism, Logan is dark and mournful. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, as always, shine in their roles, with more than enough scenes to have you choke up at the realization that this is their final outing. And finally, we see Logan uncaged, with blood and carnage everywhere. Logan is a beautiful send off to the character of Wolverine, expertly shot and wholly original. This might be the closest thing this decade to Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men.

  • La La Land

    La La Land

    ★★★★★

    Every shot, every angle, every frame in La La Land is perfect. I've seen few films use sound, stage production, choreography, and especially color so well. The movie is absolutely breathtaking. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone deserve every praise they get, masterfully embodying their characters and, as for the songs, I've not even attempted to get them out of my head for days on repeat. Damien Chazelle struck home again.
