    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★½

    So, I was going to write up a whole load of spiel about this film, but yesterday I was lucky enough to get my Covid jab, and whilst I feel fine, I have a slight headache and I'm too tired to go in depth with this film. Instead I'll answer a couple of quick questions.

    1. Is this better than the Joss Whedon hodgepodge? Yes, absolutely in every conceivable way!

    2. Is this a great or even good film? Well,…

  • Miracle Mile

    Miracle Mile

    ★★★★★

    It’s the crack of dawn, 4 AM and you’re stuck in a neon-lit diner, it’s the twilight time where existential thought borders on nihilistic depression. You’ve missed a date with someone you believe to be the perfect soul mate. Much like an Edward Hopper painting, giant glass windows invite you into a world of loneliness and quiet contemplation. The patrons are comprised of the outcasts and misfits of society where coffee and breakfast are on tap to quench their desperation.…

    ★★★

    One of the cool things about lending a hand at my local charity shop is that occasionally you can come across some weird (and sometimes awesome) shit. After being away for almost a year because of COVID it was nice to finally get back, and after rummaging through the endless copies of the "Twilight," "Harry Potter" and "American Pie." I stumbled across this title which piqued my interest. And to be fair, given the demographic of where I live I'm…

    Above the Law

    ★★★★

    So, Monday marked the first day that the UK finally came out of its third lockdown and one that's been going on since the beginning of the year. After months of sheer boredom it was nice to finally go out into the wilderness aka my local video store and stock up on some B-movies that aren't on streaming. With a plethora of choices from a BFI Kuroasawa boxset, hundreds of blu-rays etc. I ended up with Steven Seagal's debut "Above…

  • 1922

    1922

    ★★★★

    "1922" is a slow, methodical look at guilt and the consequences of moral compromise. Adapted from Stephen King’s novella "1922" is a film that will divide certain audiences. After a summer of successful, suspenseful King adaptations (IT, Gerald’s Game) this acts almost as an anti-king film. It’s a film that basks in its atmosphere, it's also a film that's solely focused on its characters rather than plot. Thomas Jane stars as Wilfred James a dedicated ranch owner who conspires with…

  • The Open House

    The Open House

    "The Open House" is a dull, lacklustre thriller from Netflix. I don't think Netflix understand yet that people wandering around enormous empty houses isn't very thrilling. The plot, essentially, is about a Mother (Piercey Dalton) and her son (Dylan Minnette) moving into her sisters house whilst it's up for sale in Canada (I think) after the accidental death of her husband.

    The film was competently directed and the cinematography, staging, framing were all fine. As was the acting which was…
