    Ingrid Goes West

    ★★½

    This has some good acting from Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen & O'Shea Jackson Jr., and does a good job of showing the day and age that we live in regards to social media and how likes and followers are power, and how everyone strives for that. However the tone was a bit back and forth, and although I didn't mind the ending, It doesn't leave on a good message for the audience, the character(s) don't learn anything, and there just wasn't enough good here to recommend.

    American Made

    ★★★½

    A fun little film about the true story of a pilot who back in the 80's was in the hub of gun smuggling, drug peddling and money laundering back and forth south of the border, dealing with both the American Government and the Colombian Cartel.

    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.
