    The Founder

    ★★★½

    An engaging biopic that expands our insight about the ugly truth of perhaps the first ever fast-food chain in the world, plus it contains a series of nicely edited scenes that briefly packed all the business concepts I learned in my Management Accounting class, lol.

    ★★★

    A monster film that may start like a joke but gets more and more of a serious personification as it digs deeper into its humane side.

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★

    Watching EDGE OF TOMORROW is like you're playing an RTS game with unlimited lives. It's an expanded, war version of GROUNDHOG DAYS, except that some of the formulas do not work that well. The more you get into the movie, the more you find there's something wrong--and you can't stop to re-think what you've just had because this movie keeps you moving (or accelerating) forward. That's why it's exhausting; it wants everything to end fast, with all possible (but ineffective) ways it has. Which is bad, because the premise is nicely introduced and, well, everything's fine in the beginning.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★½

    Considering how they even made a film that crashed two protagonists that already had their own movies, this is a very, very shallow take. Too bad.
