Although technically not a musical, Baby Driver is the best musical I’ve seen in a long time.

I finally got the last piece in the mail to complete this guy.  Putting him together was the most satisfying thing I’ve done all day.  And I wrote a short story.  I guess that either says a lot about Transformers … or nothing at all about my work.

So creepy …

Spider-Man Homecoming was a fun film about a superhero next door.  It really did hit all of the right buttons for a Spider-Man story, and I can’t imagine anybody who likes the character not liking the film.

Some of the supporting characters had an ethnic change.  Some for good reasons.  Others seemed arbitrary.  Time will tell if there’s anything specific in mind.  Though I imagine the more we see of these characters, the more they’ll deviate from their original counterparts since so much of a character’s identity hinges on race.  It leaves me wondering why not just create new characters instead?

Holland was a wonderful Spider-Man and an even better Peter Parker.  Keaton rocked as a villain.  Like Guardians of the Galaxy, you’ll walk away from the film with a big ol’ grin on your face.

I came. I saw. I wondered.

I held off on the Logan review because I wanted some time to reflect on the flick.  With Wonder Woman, I was just too busy working.  But here it is.  And, man, was it awesome (the movie, not this review).

Spoilers ahead.

There’s a lot of really good stuff to talk about with this film.  But what I found most impressive was the flip at the end, specifically during Diana’s crisis.  In the movie, we’re told that Zeus created women to appeal to man’s softer side.  To give him a reason NOT to engage in war all the time.  To simply love instead.

And then, near the end of the film, when Wonder Woman is at her most dangerous, when she’s trembling along a very violent edge of her personality, Trevor–man–gives a her a reason to continue: love.

It’s the best kind of crisis resolution a storyteller can hope to achieve: one that brings the rest of the plot into focus, one that somehow manages to come out of nowhere and yet be perfectly obvious.

What a great film.
