    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★

    [Cineworld Unlimited Screening]

    A franchise once revered for its craft, it’s startling director Michael Chaves of reasonable quality in 2019’s La Llorona offers no skill in this third main film devoid of scares in a badly developed plot with atrocious, generic dialogue in the most uninspiring entry in this once benchmark horror franchise.

    The Artist

    ★★★★

    Carried with career-defining performances by Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo; the story is as simple as it is universal: a man trying to find his place in the world when technology overtakes him.

    Superhero Summer | DC Month 2021

    A severe set back for the character in Patty Jenkins' misguided sequel, in a flimsy story with Pascal, as best as he tries, an unconvincing antagonist and Wiig an afterthought while Gadot's Diana's own personal narrative is a poor effort in a feature that aims for big ideas but misses the mark spectacularly.

    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★

    There’s fun here in Disney’s latest ride-based adventure film; Johnson, Blunt, and Whitehall giving The Mummy’s Fraser, Weisz, and Hannah a run for their money in Collet-Serra’s charming film, you only left lamenting that the editing were scaled back to allow shots to breathe and for more practical effects rather than falling back on exceedingly strained computer animation to tell the fantastical story.

    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.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    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.
