    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    Boy oh boy does this film hold up... unbelievable visuals coupled with that Hans score what an absolute feast for thy eyes and ears. Possibly my favourite of McConaughey's performances and Hathaway's for that matter and that Matt Damon cameo gets me every time.

Im grateful that a movie like this was able to made as I'm sure it had its difficulties but all in all there were just to many fractured parts to make this thing a cohesive whole.

    Doctor Strange

    ★★★

    Weird, Trippy, visually impressive, and basically one giant Rorschach test.

    Doctor Strange follows Stephen Strange played by Benedict Cumberbatch a cocky world class surgeon as he seeks alternate healing measures after enduring a near death car crash. Without giving too much away he travels to the east meeting Tilda Swinton's character The Ancient One where Strange is taken into the world of sorcery and magic.

    I am a fan of the Marvel movies in general but a lot of these…
