    You know what kind of plan never fails? No plan at all.

    Wow. What a masterpiece. I’m glad that I saw this before the Oscars ceremony this evening; I hope that the Academy recognises the brilliance of this film. It’s going straight into my top ten of all time and it might move even higher after a rewatch. Bong Joon-ho is a genius.

    If you think that 2001: A Space Odyssey made use of silence well, then wait until you see Ad Astra. In fact, this movie itself is more of an odyssey than Kubrick's classic - a personal one, sure, but nonetheless a grander one. As director…
