    Justice League

    Astonishingly bad. Kind of in awe that this hasn't been universally panned as one of the worst superhero films ever a la Suicide Squad, because while this may be slightly more coherent (and even saying that feels like i'm giving this movie too much credit) it's not far off from that level.

    For one, it's possibly the ugliest mainstream blockbuster ever released. A total failure in every visual regard, from aesthetic and design choices to photography and lighting. Scenes jump…

    ★★½

    Birdman is self indulgent, self important, and pretentious to the point where it thinks it's the greatest movie ever made. Iñárritu essentially paints himself as the ultra-hipster, who hates what cinema has become and thinks people like himself are here to save it. His themes are heavy handed to the extent where I'm not sure if he even knows the definition of subtle. He puts his own opinions and societal views on such a high pedestal and crams them down…
