    ‘I won’t ever forget you, just like you won’t forget me.’

    Odeon Greenwich

    The most accurate film ever made about Hollywood - depicting a relationship between a 15 year old and a 25 year old. 

    I never really have understood people who say about films that they wish they were longer: if anything, I think most (if not all) films should be shorter. But not this one; an hour into the film, I was already sad that I only had…

    This movie made me believe in climate change. Thank you Adam McKay for helping me to Just Look Up.

    In all seriousness, "Don't Look Up" is a triumph of its comet's sized magnitude.

    Mank is a fucking DISGRACE.

    On so many levels this is the worst film of 2020, and the worst film by quite a stretch. Morally, it's appalling. On a filmmaking level, it's incompetent. And on a personal level, it's just so fucking boring.

    Let's start with how this movie treats Orson Welles. Let me be clear, the movie could've done this and gotten away with it, IF IT WAS ANY FUCKING GOOD (which it isn't). Herman Mankiewicz did not…
