    Insidious: The Last Key

    ★½

    I'm a big fan of this series, and this is the first time I've left the theatre disappointrd. It's very light on scares, and there's just way too much exposition in this. They keep trying to shoehorn stuff from the earlier films into this as a way of world building, but it's really unnecessary.

    ★★★

    This is the spirit of Halloween distilled. It focuses way, waaaaay too much on McKamey manor, but the constant haunted imagery makes up for it.

    ★★

    Earths mightiest heroes are back as Nick Fury (Ben Affleck), Thor (Jason Momoa), Captain America (Gal Gadot) and more must band together to stop Loki from using the tesseract to allow the chitauri and a mysterious villain from invading the earth.

    ★★★★

    This really reminded me of theoriginal film. It's a straightforward story, but presented as a noir so there are a lot of scenes that may seem confusing or unnecessary from a plot perspective, but from a thematic perspective they truly drive the story.

    The main thing to takeaway from this film though is the cinematography. It's just beautiful - every scene is a work of art, and could be in a gallery. If this doesn't get Deakins the best cinematographer award then nothing will.
