    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Jun, 2016 1

    Funniest film I've seen in quite a while. Ryan Gosling nails every scene here, he's so funny, so brilliant at physical comedy. The 70's setting, the music, the clothes, the moustaches, the mermaids, the horse, the Waltons... everything is fantastic.

    The Neon Demon 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Jun, 2016 5

    It has to be said that The Neon Demon was watched in less than perfect conditions, and the last 20 minutes or so were really ruined for me, so I feel like a rewatch might hit me with full impact and take it up a notch. Though, perfect conditions or not, I do feel like on a first watch it's a slightly lesser Refn film.

    It's as gorgeous to look at as anything else he's done, and the score is absolutely amazing - almost steals the spotlight. It's that good. But overall, still a lot of thoughts and feelings that need to settle.

    Pure fucking brilliance. Everything fucking works. Fucking humour, fucking emotions, fucking Ralph fucking Fiennes is the fucking best fucking ever.

    "You're an inanimate fuckin' object!"

    I cannot get over that line. It's so fucking good.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Since I seriously started getting into movies somewhere around 6 years ago this has been my most anticipated movie ever. The only way to describe how fantastic it is, is to simply say that it not only lived up to my expectations but it rocked them and surpassed them and waved hello the second go around said expectations.

    It would be impossible to get around to everything that is perfect here so I'll just mention a couple of standout things…
