    Dune

    ★★★★★

    Renowned auteur Denis Villeneuve proves to be one of the new gods of science fiction yet again with Dune: Part One, which may very well be his greatest — and certainly most ambitious — achievement to date, doing considerable justice to Frank Herbert's seminal source material by way of outstanding performances, breathtaking visuals, magnificent production design, heart-racing set-pieces, wonderfully adapted characters, and some of the best and most audacious world-building in a blockbuster in years.

    Casablanca

    ★★★★★

    Without a doubt one of the greatest films ever made, Casablanca is the very definition of a classic, from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman's astonishing central performances to director Michael Curtiz's astonishing use of camera and sense of composition to its poignant story that's more relevant now than ever.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    With its intense and exciting action sequences, excellent performances (with the exception of a laughable turn from Jesse Eisenberg), and dazzling visual spectacle being let down by an overstuffed and incoherent script that's filled to the brim with poorly written characters and needlessly convoluted plotting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tries to be another Batman reboot, a Man of Steel sequel, and a Justice League set-up all at once with results that are nothing short of depressing to watch.…

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
