  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★½

    It's well made, and I do love Cillian Murphy (even when he's underutilized, as he is here). Still, this felt redundant. While the prior film was left on a cliffhanger, it was one that I didn't feel needed an addendum. This film often feels like it's trying to replicate the former's success.

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Well damn. That was quite a film. Fury Road manages to be entertaining with its action and profound with its storytelling. It's not a "blow you away, make you rethink life" kind of film, but it does rip your eyes from their sockets and captivate you from start to finish.

    If that's not a mark of a masterpiece, I don't know what is.
