    Pretty dumb.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★½

    I think John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum broke me. Action star Keanu Reeves reteams once again with longtime stuntman turned director Chad Stahelski for another blood-soaked, ultraviolent riff on gun-fu hitman genre flicks. However, the third effort is so unbelievably relentless and punishing despite some truly inventive choreography and stylishly fun direction put on screen.

    Paterno

    ★★★½

    HBO's latest Levinson true crime scandal biopic is a super lean and hyper-focused portrait of the consequences of lionizing powerful men over protecting the public interest. How it explores complicity and priorities of education, sports, and protecting childen is harrowing yet purposely unsatisfying.

    Alita: Battle Angel

    ★★★

    DIY filmmaker Robert Rodriguez takes on producer/co-writer James Cameron's vision to adapt the Japanese cyberpunk manga of the same name by Yukito Kishiro for a truly imaginative, futuristic action adventure. Long in development, Alita: Battle Angel is another dystopic sci-fi fantasy that uses Cameron's trademark sense of world-building and Rodriguez's hard-scrabbled aptitude for visual filmmaking to realize its story.
