    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    DC's pivot from dark and dreary messes to colorful messes is certainly a step in the right direction and while I could sense a lot of promise with these characters, the humor, and the camp, I don't think it's great even as mindless entertainment. It's truly sad how superhero fatigue courtesy the corporate machines has rendered even a sillier and more joyful franchise film a slog.

    1917

    This film is superbly shot and there's nothing that can take away from the technical prowess on display here but I found myself wanting more to chew on. The characters are purely the vehicle for a war story that, while exhilarating, has less of an impact than similar genre films.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ½

    Breakneck pacing tells a story that's not only thoroughly uninspired but also a veritable mess of Macguffins and characters that feels like crowd pleasing fluff after The Last Jedi. Not only is this an unenjoyable film with middling action, bored performances, and a very special 'fuck you' to Carrie Fisher's memory, it also ends the Star Wars saga on such a poor note that I'm content with ending rewatches of the Saga with Episode 8.

    ★★★★

    Uncut Gems might not be grappling with new ideas in the genre but damn if it isn't oozing style and wit, making for a gripping and entertaining couple of hours.
