    Justice League

    ★★½

    Just Ice League is more enjoyable than I expected (I expected very little).

    It was fun to see all the members interact with each other, but this a still a very formulaic, CGI heavy film.

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★

    It's my Birthday!
    I tried to keep it a secret at school, yeah that didn't work out. You do not now how many times I've heard that frickin' song today.

    Although I was a little disappointed with this Paris, Texas, it's undeniable that this is a fantastic film. From the performances to the cinematography to the score and the performances and writing. All superb.

    My only flaw with the film is its pacing. A lot of scenes went on for too long, I get that that was done on purpose.

    Paddington 2

    ★★★★½

    I was not expecting that. This was probably the most fun I've had in a cinema for a long time. I was grinning throughout the whole film. 

    BOLD STATEMENT WARINING: This is my second favorite film of 2017 so far.

    This film is like a mix of Hot Fuzz, The Grand Budapest Hotel and... Paddington, I guess. I swear, the amount of cameos by British actors is crazy! This film has some hilarious scenes (especially one involving a barbershop). There were also a lot of great setups and payoffs which really appreciated. 

    +Thanks for the Modern Times reference.
