Film: Q3 2017

A list of all the films I saw between July and September, not ranked. In order of which I saw them.

Spiderman: Homecoming - 4.5/5
Homecoming is the best Spiderman film in years and remarkably manages to do almost everything exactly right. When it wants to be a drama, its dramatic; when it wants to be a comedy, it's hilarious; when it wants to be a thriller, holy hell is it tense. It also manages to continue breaking the mold of gray and dour-looking Marvel films with an expansive color palate and some gorgeous cinematography.
2Pink Floyd

War for the Planet of the Apes - 4.5/5
While it may rehash multiple plot points from the previous films and it doesn't quite live up to its title, "War" is a deeply realized and well-written film, one with a reverence for the originals and a strong understanding of its characters. I just wish that it had more of a clear direction this time around.
3Bon Iver
Blood Bank

Dunkirk - 4/5
While its hard to call such a visceral and beautiful film a disappointment, when compared to Christopher Nolan's other works its hard to call it anything but. It's a bit meandering and repetitive, and at it's worst? It's empty. Still overall it's a great film because Nolan is Nolan, fuck the haters.
4Foo Fighters
Wasting Light

Baby Driver - 4.5/5
It lacks some of the wit and complexity of Wright's earlier flicks, but the glorious style and huge heart make it clear that the master is back in his chair.
5Eagles Of Death Metal
Death By Sexy

Atomic Blonde - 4/5
Atomic Blonde is probably the best example of a film based on style-over-substrance that actually succeeds as great cinema. Despite it taking an incredibly long time for me to get into, Atomic Blonde overcomes its narrative shortcomings with an assured direction and a killer performance from the ridiculously talented Charlize Theron.
Brand New Eyes

The Big Sick - 5/5
Full of more comedy and romance than any other rom-com I've seen, with a healthy dose of drama and emotional power to boot. It's just proof that some of the best stories ever told can be our own.
7The Strokes

Logan Lucky - 4.5/5
While it lacks the sleekness and style of Sodergberg's Ocean's Eleven, it more than makes up with it with heart and hilarity, and it manages to be just as wonderfully idiotic yet brilliant as its colorful crew.
8Have a Nice Life
The Unnatural World

Wind River - 5/5
A harrowing and devastating picture, one that'll leave you frozen in the theater with a heavy heart and churning mind long after the credits start to roll.
9Brand New

It - 4.5/5
It serves as a refreshing and exciting new horror film. More than just an adaptation or a remake, it's likely to be the best horror film of the year.
10Panic! at the Disco
Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!

Kingsman: The Golden Circle - 4/5
It may not be as tight or fresh as the original, but the sustained enjoyment and likability of the film is just far too much to ignore. The incredible action and visuals more than outweigh the few narrative flaws.
