BABYLON is a wildly entertaining & audacious monster of a film. It’s offering a lot and not all of it will be to everyone’s liking. Diego Calva gives a star-making turn while Margot Robbie tears through every scene with high-wire energy in what is her most physically & emotionally demanding role yet. A robustly crafted, vulgar but loving evocation of the memories that will die with us and the images that will live on forever.
I wanted to like this more than I did but I’m just not a fan of Will Ferrell or Ryan Reynolds’ comedic shtick. I am however a fan of their singing and dancing work in this film, a talent I’ve been saying for years Ferrell should display more and a talent I didn’t know Reynolds even had. Whenever Pasek and Paul’s musical numbers take center stage, the film livens up with clear choreography, bright lights and that infectious Christmas spirit that’s hard to resist. Also, cast Patrick Page in more movies please! What’s a voice!

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME swings for the fences with the most ambitious live-action Spider-Man film yet. The execution can be a bit messy due to the overabundance of villains & CGI (most of which we’ve seen done in previous films before) but the stirring highs are worth it. Features Tom Holland’s most emotional & best performance to date. Out of all the villains, Willem Dafoe once again steals the show as the sinister Green Goblin. What a treat it was getting to see him reprising this iconic adversary nearly twenty years later.
