  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★½

    Classic tarentino stuff. Especially good watch after finishing season 2 of Mindhunter. Good movie.

  • Prospect

    Prospect

    ★★★★½

    An underrated sci fi, that successfully builds a world in a few hours. Space age gold rush film with good acting and although the story bare bones, it's engrossing. Worth a watch.

  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★½

    Fun kaiju movie with some pretty visuals. Very basic storyline, but enough to connect each big monster battle. Good bit of mindless entertainment

  • John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★★★

    More John Wick. More of the same. And no complaints.

  • Apollo 11

    Apollo 11

    ★★★

    Interesting stuff. Not the typical documentary, having little to no narration. The raw footage alone with the bold soundtrack does carry itself though. I especially liked the little counters on the screen tracking mileage during the take offs and landings.

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★½

    Typical marvel fodder. Entertaining stuff that took you on a good ride. The villain was the best bit by far. Worth a watch, if only to keep up to date on the MCU.

  • A Star Is Born

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★

    I was primed and ready to take a dump on this film but instead had to scoff a slice of humble pie. Touching movie about the ups and downs of fame and fortune. Lady Gaga does a good job singing and acting, and Bradley Coopers performance is fantastic and heart wrenching. Definitely worth a watch.

    P. S. I can not get the main song out of my head. Credit where credit is due, Miss Gaga wrote a good tune.

  • Black Panther

    Black Panther

    ★★★★

    Fun comic book hero movie with the support characters being more interesting than the hero. Extra star goes towards Michael B Jordan. Best villain in years. Worth a watch

  • Shazam!

    Shazam!

    ★★★

    Very fun and quite entertaining. Interesting child-like take on dark and moody comic book heroes movies of today.

  • Upgrade

    Upgrade

    ★★★½

    Very fun sci-fi action movie built off the even cooler idea of human body augmentation.

    Some great action scenes and the story keeps you interested throughout. Definitely worth a watch.

  • Unicorn Store

    Unicorn Store

    ★★½

    I kind of liked the movie, but it did feel like a weird commentary on millenials not being able to grow up and stuff.

    Was interesting but didn't pack a punch in a way. Meh

  • Red Sparrow

    Red Sparrow

    ★★

    Sexy spy thriller, that feels more disturbing than sexy. Basically Jennifer Lawrence gets sent to the school that invented all things #metoo, and learns some spy stuff on the side. In fact, it would of been a much better movie without the whole weird sex spy element, and just focused on the espionage stuff, which wasn't half bad.

    Worth a watch if you're bored, and your mum isn't around to stumble in while you're watching it.
