    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★½

    What to say. I think every strong decision can make people upset, so this movie didn’t make many tough calls. Mostly everything is expected, especially after the first exillerating half hour. 
    The Marvel Universe will continue to produce formulaic comedy/action films, even for the climatic end of a 22 film-long saga.

  • Snowpiercer

    What’s the big deal:

    The ruthless struggles of capitalism using an allegory of a train. 

    What parts are usually studied:

    The action sequences are beautifully put together with classical music.  Juxtaposition is a bitch. 

    How important:

    Mild

    RAGING BULL
    What’s the big deal:

    Scorsese deals a massive blow to the ‘ring-fighting’ genre with Deniro holding his own. 

    What parts are usually studied:

    The script allows Scorsese to develop a character that comes out in minor details of Deniro’s performace.
    The editing in the fights helps to exaggerate the characters perspective and our alignment to them in a visaral way. 

    How important:

    Mild-Importance. Definitely important in discussions about Scorsese’s filmography

    Very Important: if not an OG SLASHER
