    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★½

    Ever watch a highly-praised movie that you have been anticipating to watch for the longest time and end up slightly underwhelmed? Well, that is Synecdoche, New York for me.
    Do not get me wrong I genuinely love other works of Charlie Kaufman including Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind!

Charlie Chaplin has crafted a timeless film that shows his energy and creativity so beyond well!

    ★★★★★

    I have come to a simple conclusion in life; if David Fincher is the director then I must watch it!
    Zodiac is a fantastic crime, mystery, and thriller from beginning to end. This film, along with being brilliantly paced for being near three hours, crafts an intricate and lengthy timeline that is never confusing nor stale. The entire ensemble featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., and more are dynamically fleshed out and amazing in their roles. Fincher's direction…
