    Captain America: Civil War

    ★★★★

    Somethings just aren't the classics I remember, so let's talk about the airport scene.

    I have only seen 'Captain America: Civil War' one time outside of theatres since its initial May 2016 release, so this rewatch was an important one.

    My first viewing of 'Civil War' cemented the film, in my own personal opinion, as a superhero 'masterpiece'. A film of this hype, scale and magnitude would not for the life of me be considered a letdown regardless of what…

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    Arrival, Sicario, Enemy, Prisoners and now, in 2017, Denis Villenevue has officially made all further competition irrelevant.

    It's incredibly difficult to sit down and review a film that is as large in scope, thought provoking, visually stunning and masterfully crafted as Blade Runner 2049 is, in a way it's almost unreal. To truly get my point across of just how beautiful this movie was to sit through, I would need no less than a thousand words, which nobody (including myself)…
