    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    A new era of animated movies has arrived and it brought the comic pages to life like never before.

    As Phil Lord's proven from writing The Lego Movie and the Jump Street series, he can put together a crowded movie that still strongly performs.

    Unsurprisingly, co-star Jake Johnson is so strongly typecast as a loveable slob that it follows him into the Spider-verse.

    Rewatchability: The wonderfully diverse cast allows any person to relate.

  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy

    ★★★★½

    How many cliché drug addiction movies have there been? Whatever list you found, it certainly won't have Beautiful Boy on it.

    The ebb and flow of the storyline creates a unique experience and guides you through their wonderful, yet disastrous, lives.

    Steve Carrell's performance has the audience empathizing with a reeling father trying to save his son and will surely net him an Oscar nomination.

    Rewatchability: If you can look past the awkward Office reunion.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    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.

  • 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.
