    Godzilla Vs Kong (Adam Wingard, 2021) 

    The final instalment of Warner Bros Monsterverse is one that sees some of the best action, visual effects and direction of the bunch. Still, it seemingly suffers from the same issues as those predecessors, such as a limited emotional connection with its human counterparts and a rather grand reliance on exposition, which in this case is down to a strangely short runtime. Wanted to call this film ‘great’, but unfortunately settling on ‘fine’.

    Zack Snyder’s Justice League (Zack Snyder, 2021) 

    Marking what is a significant milestone for DC fans across the globe, Zack Snyder’s true vision is a massively subsequent improvement over the theatrical cut, and despite its struggles with repetitive score, occasional balancing of characters and the fairly formulaic and tonally inconsistent  approach to the character of The Flash, this four hour monster of a film carries astonishing visuals and a gritty approach that makes its existence worthwhile. It’s a shame that sequels are unlikely to happen, because the cliffhangers leave room for immense potential.

    12 Angry Men (Sidney Lumet, 1957)

    Without a doubt, this is one of the finest examples of writing in cinema history. Every revelation is immensely clever and equally shocking, the characters are all uniquely interesting and despite there being a rather strong protagonist sense to Henry Fonda, this doesn’t make any of the others villainous, allowing everyone to have reasonable motives for the stance in which they take. Short, sweet and rather simple in its physical execution, 12 Angry Men remains one of the most intriguing films of all time.

    Fight Club (David Fincher, 1999)

    Quite possibly Fincher’s Magnum Opus. Coming off of the success of Se7en (1995), Fincher expanded his interest of the crime genre, whilst also allowing his directing prowess to grow. What came of it is an expertly stylish and cleverly humorous social commentary that’s kept flowing by the incredible construction of tension, spellbound performances and a keen attention to detail.
