    Moonlight

    ★★★★½

    I don’t think I was ready for Moonlight the first time I saw it, a few years ago. While I thought it was well-written and acted, I honestly found it pretty slow and uninteresting as an actual film. I knew I was clearly missing something from this, so all this time later, I’ve given it another chance. Boy am I glad I did!

    I know that if you want to be taken seriously as a cinephile, you’re not supposed to fanboy over Marvel movies. But you know what? I don’t care anymore… this is my favorite movie of the year. 

    Maybe I’m just caught up in the moment, but this might even be my favorite MCU movie, period. It’s that good. It was the perfect balance between the grounded, stand-alone films like Ant-Man and the…
