Not only is it screamingly funny (and cleverly gory!), it even breathes new life into the stale mockumentary format by frequently making the poor film crew into victims of the assorted neighborhood ghouls.

I thought it was sensational, and also a lot of nonsense, but that also didn’t matter? I had a wonderful time.

With its remarkable show-biz craft, powerful characterizations, and its way of making me dive down a research rabbit hole after every episode, Fosse/Verdon is in pole position for my favorite show of 2019.

Triple Frontier is a quintessential tweener; it’s just kinda there, and dumb to boot, gesturing towards statements about masculinity, greed, and military culture without ever really saying anything at all.

Even as a stepping stone to something better, that’s hopefully not weighed down by origin story baggage and can seize the momentum of Captain Marvel saving the day in Avengers: Endgame, the 21st film in the MCU tapestry is rewarding enough for the viewers who have the most to gain from it. Oh, and the cat. The cat is great.

Poster for Creed II

Creed II

Even if Creed II largely serves to remind you of how special the first Creed was, or is just a continuation of the Rocky saga you already love, those high notes are high enough to make for a satisfying night out.

Great presentation, gobs of filling, but a soggy bottom — with more portions looming.

The problem is that the story moves at such a clip (you can feel where beginnings and endings of scenes have been lopped off) that nothing really has the emotional resonance it should.

Cruise is the Man in the Arena, striving to do the deeds with great enthusiasm, and we salute him.

The setups and payoffs in Bird’s script are as airtight as you’d expect from top-shelf Pixar film.

Enjoyable. But it should have been more, considering the point it’s trying to prove.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

The final result, for whatever had to be done to save Solo from disaster, is the most disposable entry in the entire franchise.

An astonishing level of craft, thousands of hours in the making, and I found stretches of the film utterly mesmerizing.

The visuals are eye-popping, and it’s a rollicking ride that reminds us of why we’re fans of stuff like this to begin with.

The truth is that the ingredients are all here which makes it all the more frustrating to watch it sputter in one unbalanced scene after another...

Spielberg’s latest is both a historical crowd-pleaser and a galvanizing call to action.

It may not stand the test of time, but hey, no one thought The Room would, either.
