Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021)

Intended to match director Zack Snyder’s original vision for Justice League (2017), prior to his departure from the original production. It’s very long and inexplicably square. For such a long film it felt a little short on plot, with a few too many extras shoehorned in.


Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

I really can’t believe that this is the end of the Skywalker saga but it is. It’s big on spectacle, even grander on heroics. Flipping and flopping reversals of fortune in search of a triumph over evil. This felt, more than the previous two in this trilogy, pitched at the young boy who has always been the focus of Star Wars. That said I still enjoyed it, and feel a certain sadness, and a twinge of nostalgia, for what’s come to an end. No doubt Disney will reinvent Skywalker and Star Wars in some way. Give it a couple of years and they may even reimagine the saga for a new audience. In the end it’s a fitting end to a stonking adventure.
