Obi-Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor
M.C. Myers
The final episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi gets everything to where it was going. Not even its best part could be worth the wait.
Obi-Wan Kenobi

Part V continues Obi-Wan Kenobi's habit of steamrolling plausibility with reverse-engineered plot directions, with a small twist.
Obi-Wan Kenobi
M.C. Myers
So far, Obi-Wan Kenobi seems to be relying more on Star Wars fans to be excited in the absence of creativity than on its own inspiration or technical ability.
Prometheus Michael Fassbender
M.C. Myers
The much-maligned Prometheus hides an epic sci-fi fable despite failing to satisfy its own ambitions. Fassbender is genre-defining.
Dave Bautista Army of the Dead
M.C. Myers
Army of the Dead's ruthless devotion to plagiarization is its most passionate aspect. Less effort was never spent on a film so casually praised.
The Legend of Zelda
M.C. Myers
On its anniversary, The Legend of Zelda is a still-brilliant piece of fantasy fiction and a discussion piece for the question of video games as art.
Jurassic World Dominion
M.C. Myers
Jurassic World Dominion is supposed to be the climax of decades of franchise build-up. Here are my thoughts on the trailer and how this series got here.
Man of Steel Zack Snyder
M.C. Myers
A response to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel as well as to the debates about it, including both its problematic execution and its honest desire for greatness.
The Batman Robert Pattinson
M.C. Myers
Another trailer for The Batman encouraged me to write down my thoughts, both my anticipation and misgivings, about Matt Reeves' latest take on the Dark Knight.
Mary Sue Rey The Force Awakens
M.C. Myers
The term "Mary Sue" now seems to cause more arguments than it resolves. Exploring what it really means becomes evidence that it should be retired.
Ghostbusters Afterlife Trailer
M.C. Myers
So far, Ghostbusters: Afterlife predictably displays far more affection for Ghostbusters' furniture and its copyright logo than for the way the film felt.
