Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars no longer has George’s fingerprints, nor does it have J.J. Abrams’ for that matter. Where J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens (2015) stoked feelings of nostalgia, Rian Johnson’s entry, The Last Jedi is the antithesis, rejecting nostalgia while simultaneously challenging you to either accept it or don’t. The resulting product is surprisingly good.

Wonder Woman

Where both Man of Steel and Batman V Superman underwhelmed, Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman injects some much needed life into the flat lining DCEU.

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is a roller coaster ride from beginning to end, at its best as it takes us up to the highest peek and sets us up for the inevitable terrorizing plunge.

Black Panther

Black Panther is colorfully extravagant, powerfully symbolic, politically and socially relevant, and so much fun. Director and Co-Writer Ryan Coogler delivers Marvel's strongest, compelling, and most complex Super-hero story, intertwining the conventional "Hero" trope with real Black issue's: questions of identity, past sins, acceptance, and connection to ancestry we stopped caring to look for.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story is fun, fast-paced and thrilling, embodying the heart of the original Trilogy while introducing us to a Han Solo we can root for.

A Quiet Place

John Krasinski's major studio directorial debut is smart and daring. It's not an instant classic, but it will definitely make you jump out of your seat more times than you will care to admit.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The problem with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom isn’t that it’s riddled with flaws, it’s the fact that the film doesn’t care about them.
