After several films, 'Far From Home' shows Spider-Man as a spin-off character in a cinematic universe. Using 'Avengers: Endgame' as a premise, the story feels bare bones. It focuses more on an evolving universe by using other popular Marvel characters than the classic superhero. It is still entertaining, but nothing about it feels unique.
'Conan the Barbarian' is an example films do not need detailed plots and excessive dialogue for visual storytelling. Unlike other worlds filled with fantasy, this one does not provide viewers with context beyond the main character and his simplistic plot for vengeance.
In the age of superhero films, ‘Birds of Prey' fights the norms of other films by tailoring itself as a movie spotlighting the misfits and underdogs. The two things most of comic book-based films lack are both realistic characters and well-developed female lead characters. The comedic approach of the main character brings life throughout most the movie. But it does struggles during select scenes to balance both comedy and story narration. ‘Birds of Prey' offers a refreshing approach to action blockbuster movies with it's mature tone and enjoyable cast.
When watching 1917, viewers are in a top-of-the-line time machine. The World War I story grabs and take you on an epic journey with unexpected turns at every corner. The talented duo behind ‘Skyfall' delivers one of the most visual depictions of 20th century warfare with a strong sense of realism through the detailed production design and suspenseful storytelling.
How would I describe ‘Climax' in the simplest form? It is an artistic gem. While the story is bone dry, director and writer Gaspar Noé's artistic eye fills in the gaps. The balance of between the cinematography and production design treats the audience to a psychological horror reminiscent of Kubrick's ‘The Shining'. Along with the choreography and music, ‘Climax' demonstrates to be a highly imaginative motion picture for those who enjoy films beyond their narrative storytelling.
