    The Last Black Man in San Francisco

    ★★★★★

The incredible visuals combined with some of the most insane action sequences I’ve ever seen make Fury Road a game changing film that will be remembered for years to come.

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★½

    Avengers: Endgame has its fair share of fan service, as it says goodbye to this version of the MCU as we know it. Each character gets their own 15 minutes of fame so to speak and we're reminded of why we've been paying attention for so long. The three-hour run time sounds daunting but the pacing is perfect.
