    Hiroshima Mon Amour

    ★★★★★

    "And you, forgotten, your memories ravaged by all the consternations of two hemispheres, stranded in the Red Cellars of Pali-Kao, without music and without geography, no longer setting out for the hacienda where the roots think of the child and where the wine is finished off with fables from an old almanac. Now that's all over. You'll never see the hacienda. It doesn't exist.

    The hacienda must be built.

    All cities are geological. You can’t take three steps without encountering…

    Moonfall

    ★★★★

    Most fun I've had watching a blockbuster in years. Dumb as fuck but also plays with gigantic scope sci-fi ala Arthur C Clarke.

Wasn't what I was expecting. Reminded me of Luc Besson's underrated Valerian in sheer sci-fi spectacle.

The film is at its core a sad film, a tragedy much like every other Anderson joint. Suzie’s parent’s broken relationship and…

    ★★★★★

    Normally I would go into a film completely blind, I've always found that this was for the best as it enables you to react more naturally to the events on screen. However, I went into Foxcatcher knowing the basic premise and found that it added so much to my viewing.

    I'm going to say it now, Bennet Miller's Foxcatcher is one of the greatest sports films of all time. I went in with no expectations, I'm not a sports fan…
