Features Avengers: Endgame: Fan Reservice The 22-film climax delivers on fireworks but passes up its themes. Here’s my full analysis. The 100 Best Movies of the 2010s This decade saw new studios created and old ones bought. Here’s my pick for the 100 Best Movies of the 2010s. Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Price of Ambition With The Rise of Skywalker coming out, I wrote my final evaluation, for good and bad, of one of the most debated movies ever. Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer Reaction: Nostalgia Manipulation I’m not buying what this trailer is selling. Here’s why. The Matrix: Re-Examining a Milestone The sequels changed this movie. Its ego now shows through its history, though its action still satisfies. The Final Word: It’s Time to Retire the Term “Mary Sue” The talk of what it means to be a Mary Sue has gotten so emotional that I think it’s time for the term to disappear. But not before my final word. Avengers: Infinity War and the Power of Change An ensemble cluster of action and color anchored by one of the best villains in the genre. The series’ most essential film. Gender Horror in The Witch A movie so scary it’s worthy of study. Eggers is a name to watch. Dumbo (1941): The First Disney Film to Fall Short Beautiful animation complements a pretty bare story about proving yourself even when you have nothing to prove. Not the studio’s best. Dark City: Solving the Us Illusion An extravagant mystery, deeply brilliant. Where mainstream meets noir and makes them both seem like a good idea.
