    Spectre 2015

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 09 Nov, 2015

    SOME SPOILERS FOLLOW. I do skirt around some really huge plot points, but I get into the details of some smaller ones. You have been warned.

    Seeing as I won't be writing about this movie for PopOptiq (we already have two reviews up) I figured I'd jot down some thoughts here on Letterboxd.

    I've seen the film a few times and each time has been a different experience. The first, with friends on Saturday night, was a nerve-wracking experience. In…

    Quantum of Solace 2008

    ★★★½ Rewatched 05 Nov, 2015

The brother tried a different slushy drink this time, a green lime one. 'Food' consisted of a large popcorn and a bag of Skittles (this is apparently…

    New Nightmare 1994

    ★★★ Watched 22 Oct, 2015

    Of all the sequels, this was the one that interested me the most, predominantly for its very meta qualities that I had read about. Unfortunately, I like but don't love it, and even then I can't say I like it a lot. It's fine. I think a big problem is that it jumpstarts off of a really cool idea, but ultimately plays the same old game as with the six previous entries. I honestly like the concept a lot, I…
