    Memories of Murder

    Sweet Noirvember

    Yet another masterful work from Oscar-winning director Bong Joon-ho, Memories of Murder is a staggeringly brilliant crime thriller that's equal parts gut-bustingly funny, heartbreakingly tragic, and jaw-droppingly unsettling, often all three at once. It's one of those films that's so good that just talking or writing about it doesn't even come close to doing it justice; you just have to see it to believe it.

    So far the greatest work I've seen from writer-director John Sayles, Lone Star is not only an outstanding hybrid of riveting neo-western, thoroughly compelling Southern Gothic mystery, and hard-hitting social commentary but also a considerable watermark in 1990's independent cinema, flawlessly scripted with brilliantly drawn characters and jam-packed with outstanding performances.

    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.
