• Terminal Velocity

    Terminal Velocity

    ★★½

    Takeaway curry for dinner with the family. Strawberry Daquiri straight from a can. The 1994 skydiving thriller Terminal Velocity.
    If this isn't nice, what is?

  • Jennifer's Body

    Jennifer's Body

    ★★★★

    It is hysterical to see people arguing for assorted MCU shows as Disney making something camp or queer or subversive, when Jennifer's Body is also on Disney+. For me, simply a delight from start to finish and the second best use of Kiss With A Fist in something from 2009. Quality stuff, fuck studios pitching their subversive joy to horny men!

  • Luca

    Luca

    ★★★½

    With a storm just unleashing itself onto my small British village after I've been cycling through days of oppressive heat, what I needed was a slice of Italy and that's what Luca gave me. Honestly, it has too much plot for me, I'd take a "just vibes" version of this over the plotted version, but so it goes with kids films. Even so, had a lovely time basking in the sheer Italian-ness of the world and obviously I was crying by the end. That's a success in my books.

  • Fear Street: 1666

    Fear Street: 1666

    ★★★

    Doesn't work in a stand alone context as well as the other two films, partly because of the comparative lack of treatment folk horror gets from b-movie horror (though God knows I'd love to see more), but also by design. Once we get into the second half of the film and start wrapping the trilogy up, I found myself pretty satisfied and enjoyed the little turns we took, so it's clear where the creative team felt more comfortable. Fear Street…

  • Loki

    Loki

    ★★★★

    For the most part, Loki has felt really refreshing for me. Every time I start to think about how many upcoming films and TV shows the MCU has in the pipeline I feel a nosebleed coming on, and you can feel the weight of the universe crushing the recent shows. Anything interesting in Wandavision had to be pushed out of the way for a pretty dull final episode that set up future films and quite frankly, the less said about…

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    ★★½

    Florence Pugh, I am once again begging you to beat me up.
    Please, my schedule is flexible.
    Punch me, kick me, do that thing where you wrap your legs around my head and slam me onto the ground. Whatever.
    Florence, I'm begging. This isn't a joke. Body slam me like a little bitch.
    End me. Please.

  • Fear Street: 1978

    Fear Street: 1978

    ★★★

    I'm digging these so far, totally derivative horror that threatens to deliver more and ultimately might not, we'll see how next week goes. There's no moment as cool as the bread slicer from the last and the constant playing of David Bowie makes the reveal kinda obvious, but still dumb fun almost-trash that isn't afraid to murder kids!

  • Fear Street: 1994

    Fear Street: 1994

    ★★★

    Without going into any spoilers, this defo feels like a Dark Pictures Anthology game but without the ability for your friends to fail to romance each other. This is not a negative criticism.

  • Troll 2

    Troll 2

    ★½

    My favourite Scooby-Doo movie.

  • Laid in America

    This film is more painful than having to see that picture of Matt Hancock getting some action every time I opened Twitter today.

  • Fifty Shades Freed

    Fifty Shades Freed

    After a tortuous wait, we have finally reached the underwhelming climax. Folks, the jokes write themselves.

  • Ryan's Babe

    Ryan's Babe

    The main thing I learnt from this film is that my Canadian accent and Sunderland accent are much more similar than I could ever have feared.
