    Hardcore Henry

    Hardcore Henry is the perfect example of how a cool YouTube video does not translate well to a 90 minute film.

    Not only is the visual style so inconsistent and distracting (part of the reason first-person films aren't a thing is because it's extremely difficult to follow the action) the action is dull and derivative.

    A lot of people have mentioned how they had a great time with this film in the theater, and maybe there is something to that…

  • Anon

    Anon

    ★★

    Anon has an intriguing, albeit flawed, plot. However, it doesn't do anything with this premise (nothing of real value, at least). They are a couple of moments where they hint at grander, more sophisticated, ways to explore the morality of privacy, and the invasion of it, but those moments are never acted upon.

    The noir thriller aspect of the film doesn't work very well, either. It just feels unnatural and forced, much like the POV scenes in the film.

    No Country for Old Men

    ★★★★★

    A modern masterpiece. The Coen Brothers create a world filled with silence and then use Hitchcock-esque suspense to tear violent holes in said world.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Well damn. That was quite a film. Fury Road manages to be entertaining with its action and profound with its storytelling. It's not a "blow you away, make you rethink life" kind of film, but it does rip your eyes from their sockets and captivate you from start to finish.

    If that's not a mark of a masterpiece, I don't know what is.
