• John Wick

    John Wick

    ★★★★

    Clean action, crisp suits. cute puppies, and fantastic performances. John Wick just really doesn’t miss a whole lot. It may get a bit repetitive and you may be yearning for something more than a revenge plot, but it can’t be denied that this is a smooth film that is dripping in class and excitement. Such an entertaining film - I’m almost interested in the sequels.

  • Columbus

    Columbus

    ★★★★★

    Columbus is a masterpiece that is criminally underrepresented in pretty much every cinematic conversation. This is a piece that got nothing close to a popular release or is it one that garnered any mainstream attention upon its birth into the zeitgeist. This is a painful reality. For Columbus to be viewed so little, for it have received next to no official recognition, is almost fitting. This is a miserable state that only accentuates the power that this story has to…

    wish i wasn’t a little kid in 2012 and i cared enough to see this tour. fuck me i’ll never forgive myself for not caring enough.

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★½

    make your third act fight scene a martial arts fight scene not a cgi orgy out of some anime for fuck’s sake. 

    the mcu man; i’m getting real over it real quick. just make something good, jesus christ. if the jokes weren’t stale, the cinematography dogshit, the story predictable, the script shonky and the character arc pretty much non-existent, i’d probably be bothered to use capital letters.

  • Poltergeist

    Poltergeist

    ★★★★

    It’s been an hour since I finished Poltergeist

    Shit’s grown on me. 

    Although not particularly terrifying, inherently scary, blatantly disturbing, Poltergeist is a very methodical and unique take on the paranormal genre. Being one of the first of its kind, there was a lot of room for the creative team to interpret these supernatural ideas freely and without preconceived expectation. With a cast of actors that are all as equally surprising in their ability, this piece is almost an endearing

  • Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

    ★★★★

    The only way this film had a budget in excess of £1 million would be to pay a fucking football star to be the best character. We should normalise bringing films that appear to be shot on a Kodak disposables to the cinema - there's certainly some charm there.

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels feels very similar to a lot of Ritchie's later work (which makes a lot of sense) yet doesn't fail to entertain in both similar and…

  • Doctor Who: The Curse of Fenric

    Doctor Who: The Curse of Fenric

    ★★★½

    There’s no denying that The Curse of Fenric is a much deeper story than a lot of classic Doctor Who ever attempted to be. Seen in this ‘89 serial is some serious discourse on faith and the familiarly bindings it can bring to an otherwise empty life. Writer Ian Briggs gives you a whole lot to sink your teeth into, contributing themes and ideas that I didn’t pick up on at all in my viewing. Bringing Ace into the forefront…

  • Alice in Wonderland

    Alice in Wonderland

    ★★★★

    Despite being potentially the perfect age when this film came out, and regardless of the fact that I’ve seen it multiple, multiple times, I get the feeling that Alice in Wonderland has only grown on me with age. After recently rewatching Beetlejuice, I’ve come to my recurring phase of realising Tim Burton’s true visual genius. The guy’s worlds are inspired, incredibly unique and hold so much detail and delectable charm. Honestly, I’m going to pull out the ‘misunderstood beauty’ card here,…

  • The Muppets

    The Muppets

    ★★★★★

    I don’t know how every emotional beat in this film brings me seriously close to tears every time. The Muppets is a beautiful film that discusses family, friendship and harmony on multiple levels. Somewhere in this film, someone says, “I thought we  agreed that celebrity is not a people.” This is the greatest mantra in this whole piece. The Muppets is about realising notoriety is immeasurably inferior to incredible love, and keeping those closest to you there as long as…

  • Match Point

    Match Point

    ★★★★

    I have to admit it: Match Point blew my mind a little bit. Maybe an odd second-instalment into my knowledge of Woody Allen’s filmography, yes, but this is a film that so starkly contrasts, yet could easily be an outlandish sequel, to a lot of the director’s earlier works. 

    For the last several hours I’ve been battling with how I feel about what Match Point is. The biggest discrepancy between this film and the most popular Allen pieces is the…
