    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I'm pretty sure that I enjoyed The Winter Soldier even more than my last viewing, which was a long time ago. It's a tense thriller with a lot of twists and turns, and the action relies a lot more on stunts than on CGI. Chris Evans grows even more into the part of Captain America here. During my MCU rewatch, this has been my favorite to check in with so far.

    Cinderella Man

    ★★★★½

    Man, I love this movie. Certain scenes hit the nail on the head too much, and the cartoonish portrayal of Max Baer is way off the reality, but it all still works for me. It's such an uplifting story, and the boxing scenes really click. Great acting across the board too.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★½

    I appreciated the epic scale at times, with gigantic monsters battling each other and destroying everything. However, a lot of the action is murky and hard to see - at least when viewed at home. It has some big moments, but other times are strangely boring. A mixed bag to say the least.

    ★★★★½

    I'm relieved that Stallone got the chance to close out the original series with such a moving story. It gets me every time! It's hard not to identify with Rocky still having "stuff in the basement" for one last fight. Beyond the boxing, it's the laid-back style that really hits with me. Stallone's just so comfortable as old Rocky, and that carries into his amazing work in the Creed films.

    After watching Blackhat so recently, I was amazed to remember that Mann did even more impressive visual work here. L.A. is gorgeous in this film, and Mann gets amazing mileage out of just shooting Foxx and Cruise in a car. I also forgot about brief cameos from Jason Statham and Javier Bardem, who owns the screen as the man behind the curtain.

    The Vast of Night

    ★★★★

    There's a lot to like in this debut film, including great work from Sierra McCormick (especially one long take!) and a general sense of '50s paranoia. I loved the look of this sci-fi tale, which gives the idea that we're looking back at a bygone era.
