    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    pretty fun! definitely an inspired choice to have Raimi at the helm, and - as I’ve seen a few others say already - it’s probably the first MCU film to feel like the specific director has made any impact and Jon Favreau couldn’t have just done it himself. As always with a Raimi film we love to see Bruce Campbell doing the absolute most for about thirty seconds and by far my favourite post-credits scene in any Marvel film (Moon…

    ★★★★★

    perfect film. the fire extinguisher scene is the most beautiful thing ever and the scoring is seriously so good and needed to be given how much of it is lacking dialogue

  • The Bubble

    The Bubble

    literally felt like a 2hr long april fools joke. not even irreverent, just stupid and nonsensical and netflix banking on the only thing they need to do to get people to watch their stuff is get big names in. which admittedly is why I watched it

  • Turning Red

    Turning Red

    ★★★½

    between this and killing eve, sandra oh really has a monopoly on being really mean and annoying right now. I know I’m not at all who this was made for by the way I didn’t relate to any of it, but I still enjoyed it and think I got the message. pixar’s animation continues to triumph and it’s cool that it was made by an all female creative team but I just think it’s so sad and unfair to the people who worked on the film that they’re putting these straight onto disney+ now

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★★★★★

    “the sith and the jedi are alike in almost every way, including in their quest for power.” 

    - perhaps the one true thing palpatine ever said. they’re both stupid bureaucratic incel cults where the only one of their group to ever have an independent thought (ahsoka and maul, respectively) left the order on bad terms and is the coolest and sexiest humanoid being of their gender depicted in this whole universe. also both the jedi and the sith were so…

  • The King's Man

    The King's Man

    ★★

    I mean really just not great as either a war film or as a spy film. somehow manages to cram in godwin’s law and horseshoe theory into the same 30 second end credits that’s the only part of this anyone remembers, and does a worse job of portraying both the history and the politics than drunk history. like literally who was asking for this why couldn’t they have done another one with pedro pascal

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★½

    this film makes me so happy. james gunn has such a way with ridiculous violence and bright colours, and those are two of my favourite things

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★½

    really enjoyed it. very fun time with such palpable tension throughout thanks to a fantastically somber score from giacchino that has to be the highlight of it for me, closely followed by the fact that loads of the locations it was filmed are a stone’s throw from my flat-  and despite the fact that glasgow is nowhere near this gloomy and bleak it still made it a lovely immersive experience and gave itself to a perfect authentic gothic gotham that I…

  • Death on the Nile

    Death on the Nile

    I know it happened in the previous film but I think it needs restating what an absolute baller move of kenneth branagh it is to cast himself as poirot. like that’s lin-manuel miranda levels

  • Water Lilies

    Water Lilies

    ★★★

    was gonna just write a jokey review along the lines of “haha, french people be like that,” but the last one of those I did got removed by mods, so, hopefully you realise this one definitely doesn’t say anything like that

  • The Empire Strikes Back

    The Empire Strikes Back

    ★★★★★

    literally the pinnacle of cinema. probably the pinnacle of all of human evolution. nothing in life gets better than this film

    ½

    watching this film itself on my own would have been dreadful anyway, but the thing that made it so unbearable was sitting through it in a room full of classics students
