    Hold the Dark

    ★★★½

    When her son is killed by wolves in Alaska, a mother summons a hunter (Jeffrey Wright from HBO's Westworld) to kill it. But things are not what they seem.

    This is a dark thriller, literally and metaphorically speaking. Dark Alaskan winters, hopelessness, violence, murder and just a feeling of utter despair. I liked that, haha.

    Jackie

    ★★★½

    Natalie Portman plays First Wife Jackie Kennedy Onassis in 1963, trying to come to terms with the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
