Avengers: Endgame was boring at times and way too long but to be fair it was for the most part exciting and entertaining and an epic conclusion to the Infinity Saga. It did it's job.
American Psycho is for the most part a funny dark comedy satire about the narcissism, materialism and misogyny of a Wall Street yuppie and his friends. But don't let this fool you this film can turn very dark and horrific very quickly. Christian Bale has a great performance as Patrick Bateman. Creepy yet comedic American Psycho is good overall although the ending was so-so.
A Clockwork Orange follows a young delinquent named Alex as he beats and rapes people with his gang of "Droogs" and how he is eventually caught and loses his love of violence, sex, Beethoven and essentially his will to live after the Ludovico experiment. Now "cured" Alex is sent back out into the cruel world he once wreaked havoc in but as a pathetic victim. A Clockwork Orange is harrowing, thought provoking film about the hypocrisy of society. Alex's actions are equally as horrific as they are compelling to watch. Alex is the perfect anti-hero although he is unlikable I found myself deeply sympathising with him. The visuals are extraordinary and the dialogue is remarkable because of it's use of "Nadsat" a made up language that is a mix of English and Russian. Not to mention the pitch black humour. A Clockwork Orange is the best sci-fi film ever made along with Brazil and is arguably Stanley Kubrick's finest work.
Blow isn't the worst film ever made but that doesn't mean that it's good. It is very uninspired and unoriginal and seems like it tried to copy Goodfellas (the far superior film). Although Johnny Depp's performance was good Blow just feels like a cheap Goodfellas knock-off and I would not recommend it.
Bronson could have just been a run-of-the-mill biographical film but director Nicolas Winding Refn turns the story of notorious British prisoner Charles Bronson into an amazingly stylish, original masterpiece. Tom Hardy is absolutely fantastic as the unhinged Michael Peterson aka Charles Bronson. The visuals are stylish and brilliant. And despite being very dark and bleak Bronson's darkly humorous dialogue can still make you laugh. Although not quite as good as Drive (probably Nicolas Winding Refn's best work and one of the greatest films of all time). Bronson should still be highly respected.
