    Nine Days

    I was recently sent a link to 9 of some of the best films to play at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and as I'm stuck in self-isolation I'm excited to burn through all of these. The first one I chose to view was 'Nine Days', a movie I knew absolutely nothing about other than it starred Winston Duke and Zazie Beetz and had received a lot of favourable reviews on this site all of which enticed me. What I…

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    ★★

    I really didn't like 'Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome', and I found it to be a massive disappointment after the really impressive first two films that I've watched for the first time in the last couple of days. My gut reaction after it was that it was a one star piece of absolute pig shit (which if you've seen the movie you'll know is the resource that keeps Barter Town running, home of the last stragglers left in the post-apocalyptic waste…

    Friday

    ★★★★

    F. Gary Gray's indisputable masterpiece. It wasn't the plan to watch 'Friday' this Friday or anything like that, it came up on my Netflix and was the right watch for the early hours of Friday morning which to me shows the film's success at being an appealing hang-out movie: a spot on comedic tone, some valuable life lessons, and a cast of memorable characters. If one was to live in California for example I'm sure this would go perfectly with…

    Chuck Steel: Night of the Trampires

    Saw this film basically by accident at a preview screening that it turned out was attended entirely by the people who had worked on the film in question. While the animation is admirable, the half-baked first draft feeling screenplay is a catastrophe. I love me some crude , bottom of the barrel, dumb humour. When it’s funny. Like Stone and Parker for an obvious comparison. This wasn’t funny, and when offensive humour isn’t funny it’s just offensive and after a…

    Bait

    ★★★★½

    Look. I could waffle on about how great 'Bait' is, but I think that might take away from the film’s strange, understated mystique. 'Bait' is something much needed in the age of soulless remakes and endless cash-in sequels; starkly original and unique, and a movie that makes use of cinema in an inspired way. Director Mark Jenkin shot the movie on black and white 16mm film, that he hand developed and had overdubbed in post as the print was silent.…

  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★

    I could feel my brain cells marching out of my brain in droves throughout all 130 minutes of this. So, so, so, so, so impossibly dumb. I've watched a lot of Godzilla films. I've seen All Monsters Attack. But without the horrendous dubbing the Toho movies have, the dialogue is laughably corny. And I say laughably, cos yeah it was pretty entertaining. I stuffed my face with popcorn, me and my mate laughed out loud at the baffling script, but…
