Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman (2017)
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

This film has some pros, but many cons. Gal Gadot crushes the action sequences as expected, but this film constantly plays one of three hands: One as a comedy with Gadot as a socially unaware Amazon stumbling through a new world, a second as a super hero story in which the villain is vague, not as formidable as he is built up to be, and unconvincingly portrayed by an old man who has no business fighting Gal Gadot, and a third hand as a forced romance between Gadot and Pine. While both actors perform well, the writers really let them down on the comedy, action and romance fronts. While this may be the best DCU movie I have seen, it's probably the last DCU movie I will see.

Dunkirk

Christopher Nolan only makes good movies, and Dunkirk is no exception. However, I am used to getting lost and found in his complex ideas and narratives, and in this film he ditches all of that to focus on minute audio and visual details to create ultra-real action and suspense. This is a change from Nolan's previous work, and I do prefer his previous work to this, but I won't let my lofty standards for films he directs bring down this movie, which may be the best war movie I have ever seen.

The Big Sick

I can't believe how a traditional rom-com can be so original, but The Big Sick is. The key to this movie is its charm, which it has in spades thanks to the chemistry between Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan. The writing is clever, the story is compelling, and the cast gels together very well. While it's not without some traditional rom-com flaws, this film does a great job keeping them to a minimum. It's also great to see Bo Burnham and Ray Romano at work. This is one of the best films of 2017.

Get Out
Get Out (2017)
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film works incredibly well as a comedy, horror, or psychological thriller. Almost too well as I occasionally found myself wishing it would pick a lane and drive it home. In the end, however, I'm glad it didn't. This movie had too many points to make to keep things simple. Kaluuya and Williams put on fine performances, but Peele proves to be the mastermind, getting every little directorial detail right in what is sure to be one of the best films on 2017.
