    L.A. Confidential

    ★★★

    I'm really not understanding the high praise for this film over the many other solid police dramas out there. As far as I can see most people love this film, but I would hesitate to call it "great". Though it's definitely a solid film all round.

But I'm just not that impressed with this film. It's just about decent in my opinion and has a lot of good things going for it, but it still leaves quite a lot to be desired.

    I'm avoiding most superhero films these days since I'm assuming from experience that they're most likely…
