Bo Burnham: Inside

A masterwork of storytelling and creative direction, with some exceptional skits and a poignant meta-narrative on isolation, mental health, and the pandemic, though a little lacking in Burnham's trademark stinging wit and wordplay.

Castle

The ridiculously sublime adventures of Rick Castle and his much more qualified friends. Not exactly high art, but a whole lot of fun, with greater depth and better plots than it needed.

Raya and the Last Dragon

A beautiful fantasy world, but lacking in the depth needed to really invest in the story. Just watch Avatar: TLA instead, it does the whole thing better.

Monsters University

A by-the-numbers college caper that's fun enough, but falls far short of the original and just feels a little loose in its own right.

The Mitchells vs The Machines

Utterly inventive, brilliantly funny, and beautifully crafted. The central plot is a little by-the-numbers, but everything else is as original as they come, and the movie shines as a result.

Falcon and the Winter Soldier

A decent fleshing out of two interesting characters from the MCU, with a solid ending and some powerful themes, yet ultimately let down by a lacklustre first half and a generally poor, rushed execution.
