    Under the Silver Lake

    ★★★½

    This film is dreamlike with its odd storyline, eccentric characters and the camerawork, it is overall weird and surreal. The cinematography was amazing with some shots that take after classic cinema, the lighting and placement all well done.

    Saw

    ★★★½

    Pretty cool that it made a whole new horror genre, invented escape rooms and started torture porn. I enjoyed the twists and the dialogue.

Glad to have finally watched such a “classic” film

  • Small Soldiers

    Small Soldiers

    ★★★½

    This was a childhood favourite and it was perfect then and now however goofy it is a classic. The references endless and the animation/cgi done well
