    ★★★★★

    Legendary director George A. Romero's final masterpiece, The Amusement Park is quite possibly one of the most unbelievably terrifying films you'll ever lay your eyes on, crafting a spine-tingling yet heart-shattering journey (and by that, I mean nightmare) into the horrors of ageism and elder abuse that's massively overwhelming in its editing and visuals but in the very best way.

    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.
