    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Joss Whedon is too talented to keep making these thin and unremarkable superhero movies, and this is a lazy sequel that feels like more of the same compared to the first Avengers, especially as it has all the problems found in that one and a plot that is even more poorly developed.

    The Avengers

    A fun assembly of superheroes that benefits from Whedon's “Buffy humor” and a well-written dialogue that explores the characters’ personalities and differences, as well as the dynamics between them — even if Banner's self-control issue is too inconsistent along the movie.

    The Handmaiden

    Park Chan-Wook explores the power of narrative (the way you tell a story and its ramifications), creating another astounding visual spectacle full of dark humor, sexual desire, betrayal and revenge, with intense performances and a wonderful production design, editing and score.

    ★★★★½

    If there is anything more terrifying than alien body snatchers, it’s our own dark sides crawling out of our depths to take our places in society, and Peele creates an intelligent allegory replete with symbolism of how today’s ‘US’ is making this red chain of madness all the more possible.
