Dune (2021)

The Messiah narrative thread with Paul and the Fremen is a bit white-saviour-y, but will hopefully be nipped in the bud in the sequel, and the plot is otherwise excellent: a twisting tapestry of planet-hopping politics, breathtaking sci-fi/action, moody mysticism, and compelling coming-of-age/family drama fare. Strongly acted (Paul and parents in particular), with incredible sound and visuals (lots of big, immersive movie moments–the nighttime assault on Arrakeen being one highlight).

Borg vs McEnroe (2017)

The story of the 1980s tennis rivalry between the placid Björn Borg and the volatile John McEnroe. (IMDb)
Strong cinematography and central turns carry the slowly effective character set-ups (McEnroe was a bit neglected though) through the first two acts, with the surprising backstories (you’d think they would’ve been opposite) adding further intrigue and setting it up for a dramatic final act-but while the final match contained within was well-edited it did little to capitalize on or even recognize the character build-up before it, and the same goes for the brief epilogue and final title cards.
7/10 (Good)
