    Gone Girl

    ★★★½

    Controversial to say that this may be one of Fincher’s weakest films?

    Maybe it was overhyped for too long. Maybe it was because I read the book before watching the film. But Gone Girl (2014) felt incredibly procedural. Something that wasn’t any different from things we’ve seen before.

    I’m being too harsh in starting this. The film is good. It’s thrilling. It’s entertaining. It’s beautifully bleak in only the way Fincher could do it. Rosamund Pike is a revelation. And,…

    Straightheads

    British filmmaking was far grittier in the mid-to-late 2000s.

    Captain America: Civil War

    ★★★★

    Here's the thing with Captain America: Civil War, it may not be the most faithful adaptation of the famous comics but it's still an awesome time at the cinema. Now I've never read the Civil War comics but I know people who did and I know the basis and scale of the comic. This isn't as big or as political as the comics but for the franchise that Marvel have created, this is probably the best that the movie adaptation…
