Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri   2/17/18

But the best version of a Quentin Tarantino film is, even while its worst version is borderline schlock.

The Avengers   5/14/12
by Yoda
I saw The Avengers at the tail end of one of the Marvel Movie Marathons across the country, an exhaustilirating (a word I just made up) event which saw each post-credits tease followed by new opening credits, each film easter-egged on in an inexorable march towards midnight.

Regardless of what happened on the field, the ideas depicted in this film have won out so overwhelmingly that Beane and his ilk have had to move on to new methods of evaluating talent because the ones depicted here have already become the new conventional wisdom.

by Yoda
The film's chief comic failing is Gru's "minions," thousands of tiny yellow things of varying shapes and sizes that speak only in high-pitched gibberish and are constantly hitting each other.

Inception   7/19/10
by Yoda
No self-respecting film about the nature of reality would be complete without a few red herrings, and no serious film about the nature of ideas would limit us to one definitive interpretation.
