    Annihilation

    ★★★★

    Gina Rodriguez and THAT FUCKING BEAR! Holy. Shit.

    One of the most memorable horror scenes in recent years.

    Ladies and gents, we got our first great film of 2018.

    Strong cast. Imaginative production design. Incredible score.

    I'm not sure how fans of the novel will receive this film, since Alex Garland (Ex Machina) seems to have made some significant changes, but worry not—the writer-director delivers on the cosmic weirdness.

    It's enigmatic. It's frightening. It's beautiful. It's otherworldly.

    Black Panther

    ★★★½

    The Good:
    + Shuri, World's Greatest Little Sister
    + M'Baku
    + Okoye
    + Okoye's wig
    + Superb cast
    + Great story; Shakespearean
    Göransson's iconic score
    + The idea of Killmonger
    + Works really well as a sequel of sorts to Civil War, especially with the similarities between Zemo and Killmonger.
    "WHAT ARE THOOOSE!"

    The Bad:
    - Terrible CGI
    - A few pacing issues; Some parts feel too long, some need more time
    - Serkis' Klaw too fucking good…

    Okay, is BvS Batman Part 1 or Man of Steel 2?
    Both. The movie begins and ends with Bruce Wayne and the main plot deals with the aftermath of the events in Man of Steel.

    How's Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman?
    Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne is Ben Affleck. Bale did a better job, but…
