    My 5 Favourite Filmmakers Working Today -> HERE. I no longer have my kitchen as my background haha so if you like the content but not the aesthetic, check out a more recent video like My Favourite Films (of which Django is absolutely one) -> HERE. New video on my favourite TV shows soon!

    Django Unchained tells the story of a slave (Django) and follows his rise to freedom and badassery. We see Django at the start of the film, traipsing through…

  • The Haunting of Bly Manor

    The Haunting of Bly Manor

    ★★★★

    Was a real slow burn at times but it all pays off by the end. Dani and Jamie’s relationship was easily my favourite part of the show, the child performances were better than expected and Mike Flanagan’s fingerprints are all over it.

    Hardly any jump scares, lots of subtle stuff going on in the background, and the way it was shot was tight. Some really interesting ideas here too which help keep the ghost genre alive (ironically). Genuinely grew to…

    ★★★★½

    ICYMI, check out my video review for The Devil All The Time -> HERE

    It looks like Matt will be returning to the channel soonish! For those that weren’t around when he was on the channel, check out some videos we did together:

    Good Boys -> HERE.
    Joker -> HERE.
    It: Chapter 2 -> HERE.

    Alright, on with the review. 

    Good Will Hunting is so much better than a film that punny deserves to be. It centres around a delinquent genius…

    ★★★★★

    Sorry if you already followed me but I just wanted to welcome my new followers and give some insight into who I am as a film fan. I run a YouTube channel where I review films, make lists and do ranking videos etc. If you’d like to check out my channel, I’d recommend My Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies video, which you can watch -> HERE

    Logging on The Dark Knight as The Batman is one of the movies I’m…

  • Superbad

    Superbad

    ★★★★

    Before I review this (below), I just want to really quickly say that I’m still looking for a film-based job, be it as a runner on a set, as a reviewer for a website, or anything else in between. I’m based in the UK, have a degree in Film with Screenwriting, a valid driver’s license and a writing portfolio. I’m also available to write and direct, however my short films are all either in post-production or aren’t available for showing…

  • Kick-Ass

    Kick-Ass

    ★★★★

    Apologies for logging this on here as well as my other account, but I really want to talk about Kick-Ass.

    I remember when Kick-Ass came out and it was a pretty big deal. I don’t wanna say it’s underrated or overlooked or anything like that, because ultimately it was well-received and made a decent bit of money at the box office. However, I do think we’ve sort of forgotten about it a bit. Maybe the blockbuster whirlwind that is the…

  • Warrior

    Warrior

    ★★★★

    So I’ve gone the last few years just fully assuming that Warrior was a Letterboxd favourite, but I’ve just rewatched it and gone to look at the ratings and reviews for it, only to find 83k logged views? 

    I don’t want to say too much about this, other than it’s one of Tom Hardy’s best performances, and in my opinion he completely disappears. As he plays a broken man, his posture and body language just do so much of the…

  • Enola Holmes

    Enola Holmes

    ★★★

    Frankly the story didn’t interest me in the slightest, but it was cool to see Sherlock-ish things taking place in the original setting of the late 19th century, after becoming so used to the modernity of the fantastic BBC show. 

    Millie Bobby Brown and the rest of the cast held my attention, but it just all felt a bit... inconsequential? Though I completely understand that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so the fluffiness of it all will be…

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★

    Another one that gets better with every watch. I liked it enough upon release to revisit it while it was still in cinemas, but I didn’t understand the overwhelming hype behind it. If anything, I found it a bit “overrated” (as much as I hate that word). But on every rewatch it slowly creeps up my list of Spider-Man films and further solidifies itself as one of my favourite films in recent years. 

    By now I’ve probably watched it 5…

  • The Devil All the Time

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★½

    Video review - HERE

    Didn’t love it tbh. I thought all of the individual elements were good (performances, score, direction) but for me it didn’t come together into anything particularly interesting. The story lacked focus and the runtime combined with the pacing made it a bit of a slog to get through at times.

    Harry Melling and Robert Pattinson were the major stand outs for me. It felt at times a bit like a Coen brothers movie and since they…

  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    Have watched about 6 times at this point and it only gets better. At this point it might be my favourite film of 2019, but I’d have to think about it. 

    I want to talk briefly about how this film is almost the opposite of Tenet.

    I think both films perfectly represent how Tarantino and Nolan differ as filmmakers, but also how they’re both great in their own ways. Here we have a film in which the plot really takes a backseat,…

  • Synecdoche, New York

    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★½

    Watched in preparation for I’m Thinking of Ending Things...

    Honestly one of the best directorial debuts I can think of, and Kaufman is a brilliant writer with a truly distinctive voice.

    With that being said, this is one of those films (as are most of Kaufman’s work for me except Eternal Sunshine) that I have to admire more than I can actually enjoy it. In fact, Synecdoche, New York kinda depressed the living hell outta me. I watched it late at night…
