Elysium (2013): A surprisingly serious film with plenty of social and political commentary on issues such as capitalism, overpopulation, affordable healthcare, etc. It definitely left me with some thoughts afterwards. I mainly watched it for Jodie Foster and William Fichtner who steal the scenes they're in.

Mr. Turner (2014): Timothy Spall aka Wormtail from the Harry Potter films stars in this  biographical drama about the life of painter J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851). While it's undoubtedly beautifully shot, it has the least amount of dialogue I've seen in anything short of an action movie and that detracted from Spall's acting as he was barely given much material to work with. The film also doesn't paint a good picture of Turner as a human being; I certainly had no empathy toward him.

Cinematography and atmosphere are important but this film lacked any real substance to it. It felt flat.
