    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★½

    Infinity War had enough heroes to field a baseball team twice over, but was much more exciting.

    Nearly all of the characters involved had emotional depth to them and had the audience invested in the outlook of their fate. 

    The direction the Russo brothers took with this film retained audience engagement  from the opening dialogue to the obligatory Marvel endcredit scene. 

    It may leave viewers yearning for more, but that was in the cards all along with part two coming in 2019. 

    Rewatchability: You must.

  • Leave No Trace

    Leave No Trace

    ★★★½

    Oscar nominated director, Debra Granik, allows simplicity to take over in this film and lets the narrative breath without relying on an intense score or action.

    A rare Ben Foster lead proves worthy as his portrayal of a loving father with a discomfort for civilization leaves the audience sympathetic.

    On-screen daughter Tom, played by Thomasin McKenzie, has the audience's empathy as her rift between solidarity with her father and independence of her own life waver throughout.

    Rewatchability: If you find appreciation in the ruffling of bushes and swaying of trees.

  • Batman Begins

    Batman Begins

    ★★★★

    Reboots tend to be hit or miss...and it's safe to say that director, Christopher Nolan, hits this one head on.

    Christian Bale's portrayal of Batman neared PERFECTION as compared to George Clooney's that nearly wrecked the entire Batman franchise in 1997's, Batman & Robin.

    It's hard to believe Batman Begins was released nearly 13 years ago, but it goes to show the staying power of this movie.

    Rewatchability: Whenever you need to feel like superheroes are real.

  • The Godfather

    The Godfather

    ★★★★★

    A unanimous Top 100 movie across major review sites, The Godfather withstands the test of time.

    There is no shortage of praises for this movie, but the highest of praises must go to the quality of character development.

    Following Marlon Brando's passing of the guard to his son, Al Pacino, has the audience feeling like they are part of the feared Corleone family.

    Rewatchability: It's a movie offer that you cannot refuse.
