    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★½

    Smart, exciting, and fun. Rarely feels tedious despite the repetitive nature due to some great writing tricks. Could be more interestingly shot but as a whole it's much better than you'd expect from an elevator pitch.

    ★★★★½

    Nolan fires on all cylinders a delivers an incredibly satisfying finale in almost every respect. While The Dark Knight Rises lacked some of the cerebral quality of The Dark Knight, it really connected with the emotional themes developed in Batman Begins.

    V for Vendetta

    ★★★★★

    Words cannot express my weird, cultish obsession with this movie, and watching it synced so the clock struck midnight on the 5th of November this year made it even better. For my money, V for Vendetta is the best graphic novel adaptation to date (even if it's not the most faithful) and one of the best blockbusters of all time. The visuals and music are just awesome, and the complexity and density of the story blows me away every time (I seriously catch something new each time I watch it). If you haven't seen this, do yourself a favor and watch it today.
