• The Old Guard

    The Old Guard

    ★★★

    Skipped through it but I noticed they used a Frank Ocean song, and I get to see Charlize Theron in action again. So...it’s fine really

  • Going Places

    Going Places

    ½

    Literally the worst thing I’ve ever seen

  • The Half of It

    The Half of It

    "The Remains of the Day. Loved it. All that barely repressed longing." 

    Yea she's a LESBIAN ma'am

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★½

    Knives Out may be the most entertaining “whodunnit” film I’ve watched in recent years. All-round sweet execution underpinned by a wonderful cast (led by De Armas), sharp humour and excellent pacing. May have been somewhat predictable towards the end but it makes the subverted plot no less engaging.

    Johnson’s voice is explicitly political in this, and his fully fleshed characters is enough to make this a satisfying satire on the American elite, too.

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    What We Do in the Shadows

    ★★★

    Plot twist this was not a doc on vampires this is just how life is in NZ (as a Kiwi I can vouch)

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    One of these is not like the others






    As in:
    They really! Killed! Every! Body! In! The! Damn! Movie! Now that I respect

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    ★★★

    There need not be a song for everything Disney

  • Pain and Glory

    Pain and Glory

    ★★★★

    I need more life experience under my belt to fully appreciate this film, and parts of it felt a bit self-indulged? but Almodóvar is so tender and nostalgic with this let’s just say it made me feel very soft 😩

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★

    Robert Eggers was THIS close from driving me insane. Willem Dafoe has been trying to throw me off the rails with his entire filmography. I have so much respect for them both. So many questions on why I’m a masochist. 

    Anyhow, it’s one disturbing, phallic (HOMOEROTIC), filthy, smudged hysteria. So many other layers to it too, much I probably lack the knowledge to catch, but not sure if it all holds up together. What is certain is that Dafoe and Pattinson are out of this world. They’re batshit crazy.

  • Boogie Nights

    Boogie Nights

    ★★★★

    PTA has to be a goddamn genius for me to enjoy a Mark Wahlberg character, because Dirk Diggler? He’s my boy.

    This all-encompassing grandness isn’t exactly to my preference, but one has to admire its excellence in execution. Most importantly, it’s full of vibrancy and heart, a great story told by a superb storyteller.

  • Paddington 2

    Paddington 2

    ★★★★

    The most wholesome ball of fluff I have ever seen.


    Spot on execution. Oh how I missed the simple pleasures in life :’)

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    Masterpieces are endlessly re-visitable. I’m quite convinced this is one.

    Perhaps what makes Portrait so remarkable is that, rarely, is a romance so equal, collaborative and giving. Love, in the eyes of Sciamma, is creation. And she created something breathtaking.

    Long live female fucking utopia.
