    'I have behaved poorly, I have behaved bravely, I have behaved bizarrely to some. I deny none of this and have no regrets because I have lost and found parts of myself that I never knew existed.'

    Val is a beautiful documentary; a truly life-affirming and touching look back at the life and career of the extremely talented and previously occasionally enigmatic actor, Val Kilmer.
    The piece is so personal, intimate and poignant because of how moving Kilmer's story really…

    'You can imagine why I've come back to play'

    Now that watch is a toy I NEED to try!

    After an extended absence, our nations favourite thrill seeking, fun-loving agent is back for one last ride.
    And what a ride it was! No Time To Die was an excellent action film that superbly balanced the signature excitement with huge emotion and imminent, world-altering danger.

    Daniel Craig wasn't fooling around this time. He delivered a riveting performance as Bond. Both incredibly…

    Local Hero

    ★★★

    LOCAL HERO is a charming Scottish comedy-drama that also just happens to be my mother's favourite film of all time, and so it was only right that at some point we finally watch it together.
    While I wouldn't go about singing its praise quite as much as my mater, I can say this: Local Hero is a hearty tale about the importance of community and belonging.

    The small Scottish town the film primarily takes place in was entirely shot on…

    Halloween Kills

    ★★★

    David Gordon Green follows up his ponderous yet assuredly violent soft-reboot of the 40 year old franchise with Halloween Kills, a frenzied, rampant affair that takes the complete opposite approach.

    Personally, I had a good time with this. It's significantly more flawed than its streamlined predecessor but it compensates for that with unrivalled executions and spine-chilling gore.
    As the title might suggest, the flick is absolutely ram-a-jam and chock-a-block-full of grotesque eliminations. And I mean FULL!
    While the sheer quantity…

    'I didn't say I was different or better. I'm not. Hell, I sympathize; I sympathize completely. Apathy is the solution. I mean, it's easier to lose yourself in drugs than it is to cope with life. It's easier to steal what you want than it is to earn it. It's easier to beat a child than it is to raise it. Hell, love costs: it takes effort and work.'

    An exceptional dive into two bombastically different yet disturbingly similar detectives…

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★★

    'All of the training, all of the sacrifice, no one can hide forever. It's time to show the world who I really am'

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a triumph!

    I was pumped out of my mind when it was announced Marvel was finally delivering its first film with an Asian lead. And when the relatively unknown but intensely energetic Simu Liu showed his face at Comic-Con 2019, well needless to say I was betting my…
