  • Shutter Island

    Shutter Island

    ★★★

    What can I say? I’m just not a big fan of films where the big plot twist takes up the entire plot of the movie.

    Shutter Island definitely has something unique about it, and although I didn’t think it was Scorcese’s best, it definitely has that Scorsese charm where everything looks pristine and perfect, as well as the casting for each role always being seamlessly perfect, too.

    Baby Driver

    ★★★½

    I liked this more the first time around. Whether that was because I was younger than or because I watched it in the cinema then, I don’t know. Either way, it just didn’t charm me as much this time.

    Now, don’t get me wrong, it was definitely enjoyable enough. It kept me engaged throughout and the last section of the film was rather good and full of tension. On top of that, I did like the choice of music, although…
