Doubling down on the issues of its’ predecessor, Halloween Kills piles on loads of empty gore to compensate for its’ fan fiction script and the fact that this is less a sequel and more of a teaser trailer for the next movie.
Spotlight is one of those movies that does not hit a single wrong note from the opening frame to the end credits. Flawless acting, writing and direction come together so beautifully to create a procedural drama equal parts riveting and emotionally wrenching. As someone who loves movies, it has everything I could possibly want a film to have. As an aspiring journalist, it showcases the importance of a profession where fighting for the truth can be an uphill battle. I will be shocked if I see a movie in the remainder of 2015 that is better than this undisputed masterpiece.
