"Photography is truth. Cinema is truth twenty-four times per second."

My rating system is as coherent as the Rambo movie titles.

    Dune

    ★★★★

    Dune is obviously limited by its format as an introductory and incomplete story, which prevents it from reaching the heights of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 who both packed strong narrative punches, but it's pretty much the best "Dune: Part One" we could hope for.

    With the help of an entrancing score and imposing visuals, you're quickly immersed in this complex world and the 155 minutes go by very quickly, leaving you wanting so much more. The table is set for part two, and if it maintains the same quality as this one, we could be looking at Villeneuve's true masterpiece.

    RIP to an absolute legend

    Norm Macdonald was legitimately one of the funniest person around.

    Shame he never got to truly live tho, cause as far as I know he never did it with a bearded lady.

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★★

    This is why I watch movies.

    This is cinema in its best and purest form. Apocalypse Now is perfect in every aspect of filmmaking and somehow is also able to transcend the medium with its soul (the result of a soul-crushing production) and its grandeur.

    It serves as an argument both in favor of and against the auteur theory. Clearly not something you can achieve without someone who had a vision like Coppola did, but also definitely not a sustainable…
