    The Great Beauty

    ★★★★★

    This is how it always ends: in death. But first there was life... hidden beneath the blah, blah, blah. Everything's settled to the bottom beneath all the hubbub and noise. The silence and the emotion... the excitement and the fear... the fleeting and sporadic flashes of beauty... amid the wretched squalor and human misery - all buried beneath the awkward predicament of existing in this world, blah, blah, blah. What lies beyond lies beyond. This is not my concern. Therefore, let this novel begin. After all... it's just a trick. Yes... it's just a trick.

    ★★

    The editing in this movie is literally the most insane, incomprehensible, unbelievably chaotic thing I have witnessed in recent memory. This movie wasn't good, but I also struggle to understand how this is that much different than most conventional action/superhero films that are released today... other than the fact that it has an insane amount of blood. Speaking of this... we need to discuss how many times people can be stabbed or sliced before they are no longer a viable fighter. Mortal Kombat suggests infinity but I have my doubts...

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    ★★★★★

    No epic touches the scope, emotion, entertainment, or depth of The Lord of the Rings. One of the very very few films I can say are almost perfect in every way. The beauty, whether it be the landscape, the relationships, the music, or the story is unparalleled. I sort of see all three films as one, but was impressed with The Fellowship's ability to introduce a grand story with many different characters and still maintain the emotionally powerful moments while keeping the story engaging, despite our characters being so far from their goals.

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    I don't know if I can say I've seen a film that combines spectacular technical achievement, depth, and entertainment so perfectly as Blade Runner 2049. The cinematography, music, color, visuals, and set design are among the best I've ever seen. It is long, but paced effectively. And its themes of love, intimacy, memory, the miracle of life, environmental disaster, and of course technology and consumerism resonate powerfully. Going further than the original, 2049 continues to ask us what it means…
