    Evil Dead II

    ★★★★½

    80/100

    While The Evil Dead was fuelled by an unbridled creativity and shrewd macgyverism, it ultimately resembled the disjointedness of an art exhibit rather than the sustained engagement of a cohesive film. Evil Dead 2 on the other hand reanimates the glowing positives of the first film but this time patches most of the faults along the way.

    Noah

    ★★★★

    The arresting fashion in which Darren Aronofsky injects profundity into a predominantly superficial genre may be the most impressive accomplishment of the resplendent and epic Noah. Aronofsky, a filmmaker with the incessant purpose to innovate and redefine, puts forth one of his most divergent motion pictures but simultaneously one of his most mainstream with this re-imagining of Noah's ark. A true blockbuster on the surface, the sweeping temperament of Noah is uncommonly matched with intelligence and a bonafide, gravitating narrative…
