  • Ghost in the Shell

    Ghost in the Shell

    ★★★★★

    The love affair between Japan and the West continues in Mamoru Oshii's 1995 seminal self reflective cyberpunk Anime masterpiece.

    GHOST IN THE SHELL is a slower paced, almost somber film, a big difference compared to the breakneck speed of some newer Anime like Kill la Kill, We get to experience and soak in this universe and its inner workings through little moments with our characters, beautifully introduced by Major Makoto getting naked down to her robo-boobies to activate her octocamo,…

    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

    ★★★★★

    The Age of Men is over. The Time of the Orc has come.

    Not if the MANNERBUND of the Ring has anything to say about it.

    When the kings of yesterday no longer fulfill their duties, and their lands become spoiled - drought with life, vigor, or will for sovereignty, the determination of overcoming odds fuels our heroes to defeat the hordes of unending swarms of chaos-incarnate.

    The triumphant The Return of the King, with its uplifting glory consumes the…

    Days of Heaven

    ★★★★★

    Malick's dream cinema is unsurpassed, disembodied storybook narration accompanied by free flowing cinematography and fluid transitions evoke a biblical narrative progression climaxing in a blaze of hellfire and locusts. Love itself is an eternal, tragic force, it can be our greatest strength, and also our greatest weakness.

    ★★★★★

    When at a crossroad between despair and hope, our hero takes the latter route and embraces the light and rejects the darkness, and in return he gets the girl, his freedom, and his heart.

    Buffalo 66 feels like an intimately personal film, my first Gallo venture so I'm previously unfamiliar with him, I'll have to listen to the commentary for this asap, seems like an interesting fellow.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★½

    Equal parts HAM & CHEESE, Christopher Nolan's TENET is a disappointing mess of shitty dialogue, grandiose ideas of time, and sloppy action, leading it to fall [almost] completely on its face.

    Our leading man or the "fresh faced protagonist" of the story has zero charisma and does very little to deliver his lines with any semblance of energy or emotion, especially in the first half where the film doesn't rely on him pulverizing muh evil russians into a pulp with his…

    No Longer Human

    A wonderful portrayal of the cyber dreamscape we find ourselves in.
    The End of Evangelion by way of MDE. Well done mate.
