    The Beatles: Get Back

    ★★★★½

    I tend to try and only review films on Letterboxd; however, I view this documentary through that prism because Jackson's initial plan was to make this a theatrical release. I'm not a Beatles super fan, but I adore their music and appreciate the genius of what they created. This is the most in-depth and intimate look that you're going to get at the Fab Four, and it's a wonderful exploration of dynamics, creativity, friendship, and people trying to figure out charting their own path next. Really happy this exists and that the restoration of this footage can look so incredible 50 years later.

    King Richard

    ★★★★

    In this day and age, sports movies (especially biopic ones) are tough to stand out without a lot of "been there, done that" familiar notes. Will Smith's performance as Richard Williams is a performance that will separate this into a memorable sports film. This was the ideal holiday weekend movie experience.

    ★★★★

    If you think this one through enough, there is quite a bit to pick apart even within the normal suspension of disbelief parameters set by Star Wars. However, this is a visually stunning, emotionally moving and generally entertaining spectacle. It probably could have lost 15-20 additional minutes, which slows its momentum to an extent. I am extremely happy that Rian Johnson got the opportunity to direct this one. He seems like one of the true good guys in cinema today.

    Also, I am unexpectedly pro-Porg!

    Place me somewhere in the middle with It Follows. Part of me viewed this as a bizarre commentary on modern day Detroit. A lot of this film feels like it is a time-warp. Trapped somewhere between '70s-'80s John Carpenter horror and present day. Flat screen tvs or computers do not exist in this world, but it appears that cell phones do.

    I also really liked how the camerawork and the score worked in tandem together throughout. The camera is tight…
