    Black Panther

    ★★★½

    Black Panther was a good instalment to the MCU with fun action, good acting, some great world building and a surprisingly good villain. Was it great? Nope. Awful cgi, sloppy pacing and a problem where half of the character are underused.

    ★★★★★

    Taxi Driver is in my opinion the greatest character study ever put to film. Robert De Niro gives possibly the best performance of all time, he’s unnervingly good. The film is expertly directed by Martin Scorsese. The cinematography is beautiful and still looks amazing 40 years on. The gorgeous soundtrack by Bernard Herman absolutely enhances every scene and is able to add such ambience and atmosphere to the every single scene of the film. This film is just so amazing…

    It Comes at Night

    ★★★★

    It may not be the horror many were expecting but this is one damn good movie. Well acted and directed, dripping in suspense and relentlessly bleak, this isn’t a fun or pleasant watch but it’s still a great film. Some have a problem with the film’s lack of answers but personally I really enjoyed the subtlety and overwhelming threat of the unknown. Also this has the most blunt and depressing ending of 2017. A must watch for any film fan.

    ★★★★½

    A relentlessly tense, well made and gripping thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Performances are great from Pattinson and Safdie. The film is technically amazing with brilliant cinematography and sound design. The score is brilliant and adds to the sense of atmosphere that is so perfectly captured. This is a great movie and one of my favourites from 2017. Highly reccomend it to everyone.
