    The Matrix Resurrections

    Soulless mess of a film. Highly disappointing and unnecessary cash grab. Somehow, even the action is boring and repetitive. I can give forgive lousy writing and dialog if we get incredibly visually striking action scenes (like the second in the series for example) but we have none of that here. Just shaky cam'd robotic fights, devoid of anything really interesting or stylistically pleasing.

    I'm genuinely struggling to find the positives here. Don't watch this. Stop making unnecessary sequels Hollywood, please stop.

    How in the hell is this so revered? Maybe I just can't appreciate pompous assholes blathering about nonsensical first world problems for two hours, but honestly...what was the point of this film?

    It's kind of a murder mystery...but the murder plot is underdeveloped and extremely anticlimactic.

    It's kind of a dialog film...but the dialog is neither smart nor interesting.

    It's sort of a character driven family drama....but none of the characters are well developed or particularly believable.

    This movie…

    Okay…I admit, this is only my second Godard film. That being said, both films I’ve seen of his (Breathless and now Vivre Sa Vie) have left me feeling a bit cold and uninvolved. With Vivre Sa Vie I feel as if I can admire the parts but not the sum. The acting, dialog, camerawork, story, etc…all pretty wonderful…yet when I step back at the end I don’t feel connected or moved by these characters at all. There is this…

    ★★★★½

    Sonatine starts out in familiar fashion and appears to be heading towards a standard Japanese Yakuza movie plot, then to my delight takes a left turn and winds up being so much more. Takeshi Kitano directs and stars as a gangster who grown tired of the gangster life, and life in general and this is where Sonatine shines...when it turns into a dream like depiction of one mans depression and tiredness with his life.

    Takeshi Kitano has never been better…
