REVIEWS: Thor: Ragnarok, Lady Bird, Blade of the Immortal, My Friend Dahmer, and Most Beautiful Island
Thor: Ragnarok: "Full of action, laughs, and spirited fun, Thor: Ragnarok is a fine Marvel movie. But lacking a heaving heart, it’s a disappointing Waititi offering."
Lady Bird: "There’s an easy yet unnerving authenticity in Lady Bird, making it feel like a welcoming yet soul-baring memoir."
Blade of the Immortal: " While beautiful and spiked with scenes of stylish action accented colorful costumes and slick slow motion, Blade of the Immortal is bloated and indulgent."
My Friend Dahmer: "It aims to capitalize on our perverse fascination with the Milwaukee Cannibal, while congratulating ourselves for finding a moral message in his tragedy. But there’s no silver lining in this story. There’s no redemption to be found. There is only horror."
Most Beautiful Island: "The suspense woven through the third act is nauseating, and a bit sublime."
