    ★★★½

    'DvD' Challenge #45

    Clever and.... dark, Dark City has an interesting premise that is slightly reminiscent of The Matrix before The Matrix existed. The movie keeps your attention by always introducing questions while continuously answering them along the way.

    The tone was very gritty and somewhat futuristic, with a feeling of Blade Runner homages. The final act is pretty good too. What drags this down for me however is the lack of character. I didn't care much for anyone in…

    The Big Sick

    ★★★★

    Sweet and funny, The Big Sick is a great example of a romcom. The humor was large in quantity and quality. Every character has their own wit and their time to shine. The love story was very touching and very real. Everything seemed to flow quite well with this one.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★½

    One of the most visually mesmerising movies I've ever seen. A multi layered story that will have you paying extra attention (And maybe even a re watch or two) with a great view on humanity, civilisation, adaptation, family and love. Christopher Nolan still showing the world how to make movies, and how to make them right.

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    An incredibly smart and well thought out movie, Arrival puts a lot of movies to shame in just how lazy most of them are. You can tell that every scene has meaning and every question has the appropriate answer, and it's told with a very well structured pacing.

    Amy Adams is a lot better here than in Nocturnal Animals in my opinion, while Jeremy Renner holds his own yet again. Forest Whitaker is also back pretty much being Forest Whitaker. This is a film that will have you thinking and analyzing long after the credits role. Highly recommend.
