    Paths of Glory

    ★★★★★

    Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Paths of Glory’ is another classic from the esteemed director, once again he displays pure cinematic brilliance and meticulous skill as a filmmaker. Kubrick excels by making his films not to be viewed peaceably, but rather forces us to react both emotionally and rationally. In ‘2001’, we're immersed by extensive visuals as we follow humankind from the dawn of man to the future. ‘A Clockwork Orange’ makes us confront the inevitable violence and inherent evil in society and…

We all have the right to our own opinions after all, you like…

    Wonder Woman

    ★★

    Well, I gave in and saw it. As much discontent I have for the DCEU, I decided to give them another chance, and with that, here’s my take on ‘Wonder Woman’. I didn’t have very high hopes going in, let me be clear, but I didn’t walk away angry like I usually do. Was this a great film? Nope. Was it downright horrible? Nope. It’s a serviceable run-of-the-mill-fish-out-of-water-origin-story-with-semi-decent-characters-and-action-set-pieces, the end. Alright fine, I’ll dig deeper. The biggest worry for me…
