    ★★★★★

    Black Swan gave me goosebumps in a way I haven't for quite some time. It is a beautiful story about the loss of control and the dark side of oneself. It's undoubtedly one of Darren Aronofsky's best films, with incredible visuals and subtle elements of horror perfectly balanced with the grace and beauty of ballet. Natalie Portman also gives the best performance I've ever seen from her, and outshines almost everyone. The score is near perfect, and my god, those last thirty minutes.

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★★★

    I can't think of a film in recent memory that has made me as genuinely happy as El Camino has. It has its flaws but it was everything I could have hoped for, and it serves as a nice cherry on top of everything that is Breaking Bad, and even Better Call Saul (which is absolutely phenomenal). Though Vince Gilligan is obviously used to directing and writing television episodes, I think the pseudo-episodic and time-jumping structure serves the source material…

    ★★★

    The two big problems with this film are the complete lack of emotional core and the fact that it's 140 minutes long. Without any emotional connection there is very little to entertain you throughout the 2 and a half hours, despite everything in the film being quite competent on a technical level. It was enough to keep me engaged for about an hour and a half but it really felt it's length after that despite the brilliant Robert Pattinson appearance.
