    No Time to Die

    ★★★★½

    The stakes were high for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Countless delays, to start with, and the ambition of tying all five of the Craig era Bond together in Craig's final turn as the iconic spy, having played the role for 15 years since his explosive entree in the franchise's redefining chapter that was Casino Royale. The Craig era is defined by a more grounded approach to storytelling. Bond wasn't just the playboy anymore. He didn't have a haircut made of…

    Not since a certain trilogy about a certain ring we've witnessed a vision as grand as Denis Villeneuve's Dune. Another story that was said to be unfilmable due to its massive scope and enormous worldbuilding. Now, the most ambitious director working in Hollywood today, pushed bounderies, reached to the sky and beyond to create a grand, in surreality drenched adventure that is, in the first place, overwhelming. Every single image, every single setpiece, every single costume and every single tune…

    ★★★★½

    The most bonkers insane outing that the DCU has brought up so far.

He injects the story with lively character driven dialogue but meanwhile never slows…

    ★★★★

    Tom Hardy's one man show is impressive in Locke. He's the only actor we see, and from start to finish he convinces with an emotional, sensitive performance as hefty as they come and it's truly incredible.
    On paper this story seems destined to be made into a thriller, and it takes guts and charisma to instead morph it into a deep existential drama, but ultimately succeeds as its driving its way into a deeply human downfall. A psychological rollercoaster that…

    Looks cool.
    Cast cool.
    Vampires cool.
    But doesn't mean film is cool.

    This, as a theatrical experience, is overwhelming. It's a lot to take in. Villeneuve's ambitions reach far, that's clear. What a film. And what an epic mystical journey. Every image is gorgeous. Hans Zimmer outdid himself. It was grand. Wow!
