    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★

    Not a Marvel boy but Avengers: Endgame is a really nice sendoff with some of the most authentic character moments in the franchise. I really like Scarlett Johansson in this a lot. Y'all KNOW I appreciate The Leftovers portion. Also, the final hour is dynamite.

    BE QUIET, TIFFANY, BE QUIET! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? STOP IT!

    I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE YELLED AT A GIRL LIKE THIS. WHEN MY MOTHER YELLS LIKE THIS IT’S BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME.

    Ralph Breaks the Internet

    ★★★★

    Ralph Breaks the Internet is a super affecting experience, even more than the first. Reminiscent of Inside Out in its creation of an abstract world governed by emotion. Clever without being cloying; even the princess stuff works! Vanellope von Schweetz is iconic. Her journey!

    Cold War

    ★★★½

    Gorgeous framework and lighting help bring to life an otherwise thinly-developed romance. I certainly appreciate the economy of this, giving bittersweet urgency to the fleeting moments between Zula and Wiktor. Joanna Kulig has an X-factor to her that I came to understand after 85 minutes rather than the immediate recognition Wiktor expresses at the film's beginning. All told, I'm a sucker for beautifully-photographed lovers trying desperately to be together as circumstances pull them apart, so it still worked for me! I just wish Pawlikowski and company gave a little more to make me care.
