Annihilation (2018)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While this Sci-Fi-Adventure comes with a pretty impressive cast, great looking effects and an interesting premise, the last act does not entirely live up to the set-up. You can't say the film doesn't try to bring something new to the table but the slow pace and philosophical aspects of the rather biological problems shown only work to some degree. The ending is as unsettling as weird. You gotta appreciate the film going different ways, and it's certainly as entertaining as challenging, but somehow I expected a little...more.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The praise of McDormand and Rockwell at this year's oscars has been well deserved given their powerhouse performances here. They're not the only characters that work really great here. The plot is pretty smart and takes some unexpected turns as well. A moving, relevant, funny and tragic story.

Wind River
Wind River (2017)
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Taylor Sheridan's third film of his Trilogy about the modern American trilogy is the gloomiest. The hunt for a murderer and rapist in the snowy Wyoming mountains is as chilly as it sounds, driven by great acting and culminates in a burst of violence. 50 years ago this film, similar to the two unrelated predecessors, would have worked perfectly as a western movie. It basically still is one. Outstanding work by everyone involved.

Get Out
Get Out (2017)
8 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Very clever, brilliantly written and wonderfully uncomfortable neo horror movie, challenging racial stereotypes and viewer' expectations with almost every scene. The acting is as outstanding as the premise and the realization. A pretty wild and fun ride, not without humor but also a pretty gory final act. One of the freshest horror thrillers of recent years and deserving of all the praise it is getting.
