Dunkirk (2017)

Some of my favourite films are directed by Christopher Nolan: Inception, The Dark Knight (mostly because of Ledger) and I also have fond memories of watching Memento as a kid. I even remember being fascinated by Insomnia when I saw it years ago. But then there’s also Interstellar which I didn’t like at all and nothing could make me want to see that movie ever again.

Mad Max Fury Road

There is absolutely no reason not to love the fast paced Mad Max: Fury Road! And those who find reasons and arguments against it are simply forgetting the basic fundamental truths that they are either stupid or too blind to understand that Mad Max: Fury Road is the ultimate action movie!
