    Dunkirk

    ★★★★

    Dunkirk is a great directing achievement with Zimmer's phenomenal score and Hoytema's breathtaking cinematography.

  • Shakespeare in Love

    Shakespeare in Love

    ★★★★½

    A pure joy. Shakespeare in Love is a beautiful, witty, romantic comedy that managed to embody the greatness of Shakespeare, the beauty of theatre/poetry and deliver number of brilliant performances - even by GWYNETH FUCKING PALTROW.

    I know people hate it mostly because it beat Saving Private Ryan at the Oscars, which definitely is a great movie of classical filmmaking. (Why people ignore Life is Beautiful in this argument?). But none of these films has what I love about Shakespeare…

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★★

    Wonder Woman was wonderful. One of the best films I've seen in a long time, with brilliant, action-packed scenes, amazingly talented lead actress - Gal Gadot and a story that made an impact on me.

    It is better than everything DC has ever produced altogether.

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★★½

    I am not a hardcore Star Wars fan and I don't know much of its "world", but what I know is that Rogue One is one excellent piece of work. It is better than The Force Awakens (which I also quite enjoyed) in many terms - characters, cinematography, story, action and overall quality. It brings some fresh story and heartbreaking finale. Rogue One exceptionally well made eye candy movie, with substance that ends with the most emotional 15 minutes this year.
