Ford V Ferrari could have wound up as a stale race drama marred in technical jibber-jabber, but in the hands of director James Mangold and an accomplished cast, it just works. There's plenty of insight into the automobile industry and the spotlight is always properly shown on the two leads. Then there's the finale, the race of Le Mans that packs a visceral, exhausting punch!
It would be very difficult to name a movie that matches the gargantuan ambitions (and scale) of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It's a real shame that it can't really back up either of its outstanding qualities with a streamlined story. There's a lot going on in this film, sometimes way too much for its own good. Even though there is little room to breathe or ponder, the action scenes featuring the titans are stellar and are presented with unmatched amounts of intensity and flair.
An empowering tribute that puts the heroics of the US Military and the horrors of war on full display. Thankfully, The Outpost also works as a highly technical piece of filmmaking, not just a by-the-numbers account. The long-takes, pyrotechnics and riveting camerawork also make it one of the more impressive films to come out in recent memory.
WW2 has been done better before, but for a 90-minute warship drama, Greyhound is pretty solid in terms of presentation and action, especially when it comes down to showcasing the tense nature of naval warfare.
The Old Guard doesn't quite have the budget to compete with other movies in its genre just yet, but what it lacks in scale it more than makes up for with heart. For in-between every cool little action scene is a cast and a script that is willing and able to explore the complicated questions of immortality and purpose. For a streaming film based upon a comic book, I'd say it punches well above its weight and definitely has franchise potential.
