    K-19: The Widowmaker

    ★★½

    When a film about a nuclear submarine, a potential meltdown, and a brewing mutiny somehow provides little tension, and while not boring, is pretty far from exciting, which is not indicative of the Kathryn Bigelow we know today - plus it is filled with terrible, terrible bad Russian accents.

    This was film #14 in my 52 Films Directed by Women project.

    ★★½

    When a film has a great, and believable premise, has a really slick visual style, especially when dealing with augmented reality, and builds up a strong mystery for the first half, but ends up feeling a little stale during the second half and ends with a disappointing reveal - plus the constant switching between aspect ratios is a major distraction.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★½

    When a film has so much going on that it could have benefited from a little more focus, but Afleck's grumpy rendition of Batman coupled with awesome cinematography and exciting action set pieces make it a worthwhile ride.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    When you still get choked up, even after the fourth viewing, when Rey force pulls the lightsaber into her hand and the Skywalker theme kicks in.
