  • Highlander III: The Sorcerer

    Highlander III: The Sorcerer

    ★★

    After the first two Highlander movies, I was primed and ready to go into this expecting another fantastic entry to a film franchise that is rapidly becoming an all-time favourite.

    It's.... alright? Somehow it comes across as the least ambitious of the three I've seen so far. The gonzo urban fantasy of the first movie, and the batshit sci-fi nonsense of the second I grew to adore is replaced with a relatively standard-feeling globetrotting sword rival movie. Mario Van Peebles…

  • The King

    The King

    ★★

    The poignant story of a young king who is determined to prevent anything interesting from happening.
    I liked the soundtrack, and discovering Timothee Chalamet & his vacuum sealed jaw. Robert Pattinson clearly knew the movie was dull as shit so he talked about cocks for five minutes in a bad french accent. The guy's the only person having any fun here.

  • John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

    ★★

    Tried to like this but I was about as bored as Keanu looked. I'm not an action guy so scenes like the Motorbike Sword Fight felt like watching a ps2 action game longplay. Just a constant drone of bloodletting that is just barely stylish and well choreographed enough to not become soul-rending. My eyes kept glazing over and imagining Lance Reddick lovingly feeding the dog opulent treats.

    Love how the mystery of the High Table's limitless power that kept me…
