    “I still prefer The Babadook“

    This is one “Requel” that fans of the franchise will be happy with and would make the late great Wes Craven proud. 

    Doubling down on the meta the franchise is known for, the new entry is a fun and nostalgic ride back through Woodsboro. Making commentary on everything from the new “elevated horror” genre, reboot rules and even Rian Johnson and his haters.

    The killers being toxic fans from Reddit made me chuckle but was pretty clever and fits the franchise.

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★★

    Adam McKay’s not so subtle, star studded, cynical  end of the world satire that will sure to be divisive. 

    Tries to be the updated Dr Strangelove and Network of the new social media generation. While McKays screenplay lacks the intelligence of the previous films, it does contain lot of genuine laughs. 

    It’s also just fun seeing these stars let loose and have fun themselves. The political nature and editing will annoy some but I appreciated the home run McKay was…

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★

    Marvel Studios continues its Phase 4 theme of fucked up families and overcoming broken homes like Black Widow before it. 

    But Destin Daniel Cretton’s action packed entry might contain the most thrilling action sequences in the whole MCU. Hong Kong superstar Toney Leung making his US debut, plays an intriguing villain and has the acting chops to back it. 

    The reliance on the MCU formula and over use of CGI in the third act brings this down a little but still this is another entertaining and winning MCU entry with some Asian soul and heart to it.

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★½

    David Lowery’s eerie and haunting retelling of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Unknown. Filled with some of my favorite camera shots, cinematography and score of the year so far. 

    Anchored by a strong performance by Dev Patel and featuring some delicious supporting roles from past A24 veterans Alicia Vikander and Joel Edgerton. 

    While it goes over familiar themes of being honest and staying honorable, Lowery does a masterful
    spin of it. With this and Ghost Story, Lowery films are more like experiences which I enjoy. One of the years best so far.
