    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★

    At this point there's a baseline enjoyment I can expect to get from a new Wes Anderson project, mainly in the immaculate production design, eclectic music choices, and distinct world that's basically a given at this point.

In the case of Into the Spider-Verse, I had to reconcile my love for both film and comic books in the same experience, a feeling which left me shaken through much of the…
