    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★★

    Crowd pleasing fun and deeply poignant.

    Released in December of 2021, the 27th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe should immediately recoup its $200 million dollar budget as it shatters pandemic-era box office records. This is nothing new for the character, as Spider-Man has featured in four of the 14 opening-weekend record holders in the last 20 years. Sam Raimi's original film from 2002 was, rather famously, the first to break $100 million in a single weekend.

    ★★★★★

    Emotional and brilliant.

    A year after yet another globe-trotting tour concluded, Bruce Springsteen changed the game by doing something he had never before: hold a steady job. His 14-month residency at the Walter Kerr Theatre was met with rave reviews, packed houses, and high ticket prices. Try as I might - even after winning the 'ticket lottery' - I wasn't able to secure (let alone afford) seats to any of the 300+ shows in the tiny Broadway venue. Had I…

    An underrated mystery loaded with excitement.

    This sci-fi action thriller from director Alex Proyas was produced on a budget of $120 million, and grossed more than $350 following its release in the summer of 2004. The PG-13 rated story was adapted from unused original screenplay by Jeff Vintar's and combined with elements 'suggested' from Isaac Asimov's 1950 short story collection of the same name. The twisty story is set thirty years in the future, where a techno-phobic cop (Will Smith)…

    Justice League Dark: Apokolips War

    Messy and hurried - but unique moments delight.

    The sixteenth and final installment of the DC Animated Movie Universe (DCAMU) is as ambitious as it is enjoyable. DC's animated answer to "Avengers: Endgame" decides to go all-in on their least likeable protagonist, Constantine... and build an entire team-up movie around him. A good deal of the dialogue is clunky, the animation is stiff at times, and the convoluted plot relies on a few too many deus ex machina resurrections and…

    An unqualified masterpiece.

    This captivating science fiction drama from critically acclaimed director Christopher Nolan was produced on a budget of $165 million, and released on November 5, 2014. Although it's an entirely original property with no ties to any previous works, the hype surrounding Nolan's ninth feature film was so high, Warner Bros. studios traded away the rights to its lucrative "Friday The 13th" series (among other franchises) just to secure worldwide distribution rights to this movie. So to say…

    Gyllenhaal is masterful.

    This low-budget American crime-thriller from first-time director Dan Gilroy was a critical and commercial success following its theatrical release on Halloween, 2014. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as an enigmatic individual who muscles his way into the world of crime journalism: earning money by photographing accidents and murders late at night, and selling them to a local news station. He is a quirky, bottom-feeding opportunist, exhibiting signs of high-functioning autism... always communicating directly, if dishonestly with his mark.
