Film Reviews I, Tonya: Image Culture on Ice Perfect performances support an underachieving recreation. Justice League (2017): When Warner Bros. Gave Up A pile of discarded Halloween costumes dolled up by millions but still boring to watch. Inglorious Basterds: Killer Cover-Up Tarantino uses a short film-style to forgive history. He reinvents the best in both (and some of the worst). Popeye: Robert Altman—De-Animator Chaotic elements curdle in Altman’s serious silly world. There are worse films but few larger failures. The Social Network: Misanthropy Memoir The figure is troubled; the movie is precise. It’s a tribute to patter more than to a man. Interstellar: Feeling Machine No shortage of mechanical beauty and a heart full of intent. This doesn’t stop it from being loud. Brooklyn: Cautious Fairytale A well-meaning take on worse movies. It’s pretty but it’s not brave. Avengers: Endgame: Fan Reservice The 22-film climax delivers on fireworks but passes up its themes. Here’s my full analysis. Midsommar Director’s Cut: Relationship Horror A queazy exploration of love that doubles as genre comfort. Don’t expect more. Gretel & Hansel: Flop Fable A new direction doesn’t kill the magic. The complete lack of creative energy does.
