    Ad Astra

    ★★★★½

    "Ad Astra" is just about everything I want in a sci-fi film. Don't get me wrong, action heavy fantasies are a lot of fun and I'm a huge "Star Wars" geek but I hate it when my favourite genre gets pigeonholed. So when a slow, methodical and thoughtful film that explores the awe-inspiring vastness and loneliness of space alongside the abandonment of god, not just as a creator but also as a parent, it angers me when the only criticism…

    Oh man, where to even begin?

    Denis Villeneuve has officially taken the blockbuster crown from Christopher Nolan. Whilst the latter is getting high off his own farts, the former is pushing the boundaries of genre filmmaking with each subsequent release.

    "Dune" is incredible! It's proof that any book can be adapted as-long as you have talented people overseeing the project. From the moment it was announced that Villeneuve would be helming the film I was put at ease. I had…

    Macbeth

    ★★★★

    Justin Kurzel's adaptation of "Macbeth" is a stripped back, savage re-telling of Shakespeare's iconic play. It does away with the pageantry of other filmed versions to tell a more intimate tale of deceit and paranoia. Michael Fassbender is simply phenomenal in the titular role. As I was watching the film I released that I hadn't seen him in a film for a long time. It seems that he's only made one film, "Dark Phoenix" in the last five years with…

    Save the Cinema

    Two years into a global pandemic which has shut down and crippled a ton of industries, Sky's "Save the Cinema" comes as a timely reminder that the arts are just as valuable to our culture as it is to our economy. Theatre is a celebration of our humanity. Storytelling is as old as our species, it brings us closer together as a community, it lets us tap into our emotions and experience hundreds of lives/experiences we otherwise would never of…

    ★★★★

    "Charade" is the most Hitchcockian Hitchcock that Hitchcock never Hitchcocked.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★

    I think it goes without saying amongst fellow film aficionados that we all love films, especially the great ones. However, through years of watching films I've noticed that there seems to be that one film which is hugely popular, yet when you sit down to watch it you can't understand why it's held in such high esteem. For me it's only happened a couple of times, but I unfortunately have to add "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" to the…
