• Squid Game

    Squid Game

    ★★★

    Engaging at the beginning even if it was a bit derivative, but it was a case of diminishing returns as it went on, to the point where I was just watching it for the sake of finishing it by the end until it trickled out of life about three episodes too early.

  • Dave Chappelle: The Closer

    Dave Chappelle: The Closer

    ★★

    A few good bits here and there but generally it's a repeat of his last show, thematically. We see Dave complain about being called a transphobe and him defending said position for basically the whole show. That's about it.

  • Dont Look Back

    Dont Look Back

    ★★★★★

    Happy birthday, Mr. Bob!

  • Pelé

    Pelé

    ★★★½

    Rumour has it that Pelé is counting up all the stars given on the reviews here to add to his goal tally.

  • Nobody

    Nobody

    ★★★

    As other reviewers have said - Bob Odenkirk as John Wick. Bob makes the whole thing, pretty fun all round.

  • The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans

    The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans

    ★★★½

    One day, the world will rightly recognise that Nicholas Cage is the greatest actor of all time, and all will be the right with the world.

  • Seaspiracy

    Seaspiracy

    ★★★½

    Makes me happy that I don't like fish. Would have liked to have seen more of the Sea Shepherds, though maybe those guys are more worthy of having a whole film to themselves. Does do a good job of highlighting fishing industry issues for those of us who don't really know a lot about it.

  • The Bridge

    The Bridge

    Now, I'm not a religious person, but if I were a full-on member of the Jesus fan club I'd feel really let down by the standard of Christian propaganda movies, much like Christian rock for that matter. Just being religious in nature doesn't mean it de facto has to be bad, great gospel albums have been made and even The Bible itself remains one of the pillars of all literature and story-telling, historically. This is just . . . shit.…

  • The Phantom of Liberty

    The Phantom of Liberty

    ★★★½

    Didn't quite grab me as much as other Bunuel films have, but it still has its moments of the most beautiful absurdity, as you'd expect.

  • Red Dot

    Red Dot

    ★★

    The scenery is beautiful, the premise of the film itself is far from awful in and of itself, too - in fact, it could have been a very interesting film if dealt with in another way.

    Red Dot tells the story of a married couple who go on a hiking trip to Northern Sweden in order to reinvigorate their dwindling marriage, only to be disturbed by what would seem to be a mysterious sniper whilst they're out in the wilderness.…

  • Safer at Home

    Safer at Home

    ★★

    If someone gets knocked out and then you realise they're not breathing, the best course of action is probably not to just say wake up whilst clapping your hands.

    These characters are all pretty awful and dull and spending any amount of time with any of them in any situation is a challenge, let alone sharing their lives as they're locked inside with each other, watching them making increasingly more ridiculous choices as the film goes on.

  • Wrong Turn

    Wrong Turn

    ★★

    The worst wrong turn was deciding to watch this film. Ho, ho, ho.
