    ★★★★

    During the scene in which Strange fights an evil variant of himself using musical notes I looked at my friend and we simultaneously whispered “battle of the bands!” and that alone is worth 4 stars

    ★★★★

    Gotham is grimier than ever in Matt Reeves’s take on the caped crusader. Clearly inspired by Fincher, the atmosphere dominates the film. As for the performances, I think we knew Pattinson and Kravitz would deliver but I was taken aback by how great Colin Farrell’s portrayal as the Penguin was. While I had some issues with the third act, The Batman is a thrill from start to finish and I look forward to rewatching it in the future.

    Almost every bio pic I’ve ever seen is essentially the same film, and then I saw Spencer. Shot on film, it looks like you’re in 1991, and with an overwhelmingly good performance from Kristen Stewart, it feels like you’re watching princess Diana. While this film is a self proclaimed fable with surrealist elements throughout, it all feels so brutally real. Though its script is far from perfect, Spencer is wonderful indictment on the royal family and lazy bio pics, and a love letter to the people’s princess.

    This film is everything that’s great about the MCU, and really none of the bad. Other than a couple of jokes that fell flat there wasn’t a line that wasn’t perfectly written / delivered. And the often criticized 3rd act CGI fight scene was maybe the best scene of the film. The fan service was off the charts but that’s not what made this film great. Watts understood that this film had to be built on its characters and he did that, while crafting a pretty straightforward plot with not a ton of plot holes. Also, Tobey is right, Andrew Garfield is amazing.
