As of right now, this is my second favourite MCU film. I like the original Avengers a bit more because it may not be as complex, emotional or have as many iconic fights and moments, but Civil War doesn't have the feeling of awe and wonder of that film that made me fell in love with the MCU and the genre as a whole.
I guess it is kind of refreshing to see an MCU movie without world ending stakes but at the same time it is painfully average. So predictable and by the numbers, unlike its sequel you can see some glimpses of inventive stuff, most likely Edgar Wright's ideas so its got that going for it.
This is yet another film that came out in some festivals in 2018 but gets its wide release this year. I say this because it might be my favourite film so far in 2019.
Although it's not nearly as good as Annihilation (my favourite film at this time last year), Claire Denis' visual style is so impressive. High Life is the most impressively shot film of the year and I don't think there's been anything quite like this since the…
Watching this for the first time in over 10 years I have to say it's not as bad as I remember.
Louis Letterier has always been an underatted blockbuster director, I think he's pretty good and some of the shots and sequences in this film are evidence of that but it's a shame the guy just keeps getting handed shit scripts.
I'd say the first 30 minutes of the movie are actually really good, some interesting scenes with Edward Norton giving a really likable performance. After that it just turns into a generic cheese fest. Still better than Captain Marvel.
