The Northman

The Northman – an unapologetically violent and masterfully made story about revenge, The Northman is not for the faint of heart. Animalistic and brutal scenes paired with stellar casting and an otherworldly soundtrack make this new adventure from Robert Eggers a can’t miss experience from start to blood soaked finish.

The French Dispatch

Most ensemble movies struggle with having too many recognizable faces and unintentionally create a Rick Dalton Pointing Meme experience. There are exceptions, like most of the later Avengers movies most notably. However, Wes Anderson is able to construct a quick sub-2-hour movie with plenty of breathing room for everyone. While nobody stands out as the shining star amongst stars, everyone brings their own unique flair and makes their story their own. A very whimsical and loving caricature of journalism, The French Dispatch tells five unique short stories that would appear inside of a mid-20th-century magazine. Interesting visuals, witty dialogue, and masterful editing await inside this humorous and well-crafted movie.

Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop – A Netflix original animation from Flying Dog studios, this character-driven story fails to tell an interesting story and instead focuses on style over substance.
