    The Batman

    ★★★★★

    [IMAX]

    From Michael Giacchino’s chilling score, Matt Reeves’ epic telling is a towering spectacle; every opportunity to present Pattinson’s caped crusader as fantastically as possible achieved splendidly as the world of Gotham is realised in all its seedy glory in a brilliant crime saga as Pattinson’s young vigilante is tested in a story about his past, aided by Kravitz’s mesmerising Selina Kyle and Wright’s righteous Lt. Gordon.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    ★★

    If gory deaths is your thing then Netflix’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre has that in spades, but in terms of narrative satisfaction this soft reboot is a shell of a film trying so hard to piggyback on the Halloween wave, filled with paper-thin characters with no motivations only to serve as fodder for the vast body count racked up in a film that throws in several concepts but has nothing to say on any of them.

    The Works | Jackie Chan

    In this story of mistaken identity, Jackie Chan’s sophomore directorial effort is unable to overcome its simple, uninspiring narrative, but remains fun viewing through charm and the innovative fight sequences leading to a ferociously climactic battle between Chan’s Dragon and Hwang In-Shik’s Master Kwan.

    ★★★

    Daily Decade Films | A Letterboxd History 2022

    Taking the popular television show concept to film, the Jackass’ teams antics provide some good comedic value in a kind of car-crash entertainment as Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, and the rest of the gang throw themselves into wacky, painful scenario after another for our sick pleasure. It’s by no means groundbreaking cinema, but it’s effective.

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    If Infinity War was the culmination of ten years’ hard work by Marvel Studios, Endgame is a celebration of Marvel itself; a chance to spend time with old friends in one last hurrah in a film that gives new meaning to the word “epic”. For that, it is a technical masterpiece, making every single frame count and edited to perfection as Feige, Markus, McFeely and the Russos’ vision is fully realised in this capping-off point to twenty-two films’ worth of story as the universe moves on to a bright and unknown future.

    ★★★★★

    There are few instances nowadays where a film can be classed as an event, but Marvel’s Infinity War, even for its strange inclusion of 4 sub-villains with no previous introduction and the film’s importance likely being retconned within a year’s time, is an event; from the “10” in Marvel Studio’s logo, this has been the culmination of the studio’s hard work that pulls no punches with its heroes for the most noteworthy Marvel film in the studio’s short existence of producing their own films.
