    The Green Knight

    ★★★½

    My favorite part of seeing an A24 film in theaters is when the credits roll after a quiet, seemingly anticlimactic ending and someone inevitably says, “what the fuck was that?”

    The Green Knight is truly a masterclass in world building where every stitch and brick serve to create a place that feels beautiful tactile and lived in. Less impressive is a second act that is equal parts visually stunning and enigmatic at the expense of the tales momentum. A flawed but beautiful experience.

    Raya and the Last Dragon

    ★½

    About as deep as a puddle, Raya and the Last Dragon exists as an astonishing crockpot full of disparate ideas and concepts that clearly needed a stronger directional dynamic to whittle down this tale into something more emotionally centered and far less scattered. Beneath the obviously lovely animation and game voice cast is a script so consistently dull and uninspired that I found myself frustrated that I wasn’t being afforded authentic moments of emotion to enjoy. The film is hyperactive…
