The success of Martin Scorsese’s The Departed lies on the shocking change of events in the finale. It’s story, while fascinating and very engaging, wouldn’t work nearly as effectively if those twists never occurred.
After watching more established films in courses, Tim McCanlies’ Secondhand Lions felt like a much needed break from analyzing/dissecting the qualities of a particular film. While not great, I couldn’t help but find myself immersed in this strange, yet lively world.
The Batman is not just the best Batman film since The Dark Knight, it’s also one of the best superhero films I have ever seen. What the whole cast and crew were able to accomplish with this film is just fantastic. I cannot recommend seeing this movie in a theater enough.
This is only my second viewing of the first LOTR film and for once, I actually liked it. Do I think it’s overhyped? For sure, but in a way, that doesn’t distract me from liking the film. It is a confidently, well-made flick.
