    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    Leigh Whannell directs this movie so well, immersing you inside the mind of a woman who's living in constant trauma and paranoia thanks to brilliant camerawork and a shockingly splendid performance from Elisabeth Moss. And Whannell's endings are always genius. Seriously, the final moments of the film, from the ending conversation to the music playing over the final shot, are just perfectly executed. Well done, Leigh. This and Upgrade have proven your genius already.

    Watchmen

    ★★★★½

    Watchmen is spectacularly shot, exciting, fun, and interesting. The directing from Zack Snyder is phenomenal. In the film's opening scene, The Comedian, a former watchman, is beaten and thrown to his death in what is an incredible action sequence. The opening credits that follow, played to Bob Dylan's "Times are a Changing", aren't like anything I've ever seen before. I also loved the way the song "The Sound of Silence" was incorporated into the funeral scene. The action is quite…

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    Words can't describe what I just saw. I'm still in absolute shock. It's not 100% perfect but it brings together all 18 Marvel movies for an epic team-up that won't disappoint the die-hard fans like myself. I won't say anymore, go see it for yourself.
