Whilst The Battle of the Five Armies is an entertaining film, it doesn't bare well when viewed without its predecessors. the film really feels like the third act of a single film, and whilst the pacing isn't bad, this film truly confirms that The Hobbit didn't need to be a trilogy to cover all of the material.
The Hobbit still features many of the faults from the first two films, but its structure adds to the fact that it feels…
Fruitvale Station isn't a perfect film, but it's a heavy one none the less. The film doesn't necessary follow through as a singular plotline, but more of a personal diary that leads into a finale that will give you an intense feeling of both sadness and anger.
From the performances to the direction, Fruitvale Station in technicality isn't perfect, but its dynamic and characters are so well portrayed that it simply makes you forget and ignore these things altogether.
