    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★★½

    This is what a sequel should do, make everything bigger and better while building upon the previous one. This movie did that flawlessly. I actually ended up liking some of the high school characters by the end of this movie (except for Flash Thompson, which the MCU version is a "Big Bang Theory" stereotypical character.) The twist with Mysterio was great, fitting well within his character from the comics. Spider-Man/Peter Parker carries over the sadness over losing Tony Stark in Endgame over in this movie. Overall a great ending to the MCU's Infinity Saga and a beginning to a new saga for the MCU.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★★★★

    This is the quintessential Godzilla film. All of the Titans, from Godzilla and Mothra, to Rodan and the main antagonist King Ghidorah (Sometimes referred to as “Monster Zero”) were executed perfectly. The human main characters, while not being deep, were perfectly well developed. The music by Bear McCreary was beyond perfect, taking inspiration from classic Akira Ifukube tracks and adding his own spin to it. And to top this whole movie off, it has a nice overarching theme of coexistence between man and nature. Long Live the King!

    I am quite surprised by how perfect this movie is. After seeing the trailer, I thought they were going to play it safe, but no, they go all in and deliver one of the best TMNT movies ever!

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    This is the perfect Superhero movie in general. Everyone in this movie is great, all of the cast giving Oscar-worthy performances. Every scene is just raw and emotionally draining (of course with some comedy because how else are you going the hide the pain of losing half of the universe.)
