    The Sisters Brothers

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Dull and uninteresting.

    I'm a fan of Joaquin Phoenix but his chemistry with John Reilly is too weak that it got overshadowed by the dynamic between Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed. The strongest point of this film were the barn shootout and when the four characters were helping one another, teaming up to achieve a specific goal... just basically developing a friendship. It was great but those moments were not enough to cover for an underwhelming story.

    ★★★★★

    Elegantly directed, acted, and crafted.

    Roma is a deeply melancholic masterpiece; a reflection of reality, bleak yet genuine, silent but not empty. There something about this film that is so comforting...

    It felt like home.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    Excellently animated and superbly written.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is going to end this year in a blaze of glory. A force to be reckoned with. A hypnotic, mesmerizing, and striking film that just draws you right in. It has a terrific score and soundtrack that just complements everything in the film. It also maximizes every scenes without wasting any seconds until the screen turned black.

    Legitimately the best Spidey film of all time. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is clearly the frontrunner and is about to give Incredibles 2 a run for its money as the Best Animated Film of the Year.
