    Ad Astra

    ★★★★★

    AD ASTRA is a meditation on the harms of emotional repression, the struggles of toxic masculinity and the psychological deterrents of unresolved relationships.

    An opus to the infiniteness of space - a frontier to reflect upon our inner-most feelings that we struggle to repress.

    It brings so much life to our solar system... So much animation amongst the quietness, so much presence among the emptiness... 

    Richter’s score further adds, in richness, to the solar system’s echoes, seemingly fitting in with our larger than life solar system.

    The entire film is just wow.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★★

    No mention of any plot points or spoilers in this, just me talking about the film in general and my emotions.

    THE RISE OF SKYWALKER is the ending I wanted, and the ending to a saga that I loved. Whilst Endgame felt light despite my heavy love due to the franchise being carried on, this felt heavy, being the “final word in the story of Skywalker”.

    I am heavy with emotion, satisfaction, joy, nostalgia, sadness and a loss of what…

    Da 5 Bloods

    ★★★★★

    Anytime you see the word “A Spike Lee Joint” appear on screen, you know you’re in for a treat; works of true ambition and passion. DA 5 BLOODS follows closely in that tradition.

    A film flowing with urgency, passion, and most importantly, and quite timely, education. As much a film about the wars of the past as it is about the wars of the present. A commentary on a modern America at war with itself - a conflict built upon…
