    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

    ★★★½

    The quality of the action scenes in this series is negatively related to the quality of the plot and acting, but I’m glad that they’ve finally embraced the absolute absurdity of the world they’ve created. And damn are these movies fun to watch when they’re doing what they do best: filling extras with billets and knives.

    Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese

    ★★★★

    Ranks among the best Dylan docs, and is even more entertaining than Scorsese’s previous No Direction Home, though not nearly as informative.

    ★½

    Aptly named.

    X-Men

    ★★★★

    Rewatched this today with low expectations and it honestly holds up pretty well. Sure, there are some cheesy late 90s/early 2000s moments here, but overall it's a lot less ridiculous than it could have been.

     It's amazing to note the contrast between this film, the start of the X-Men universe, and Logan, which may be the end of it. There were a few rocky patches, but overall, the evolution has been great.
