    A profoundly boring movie with a deeply unpleasant main character - what's not to hate?

  • The Favourite

    The Favourite


    Wickedly sharp writing, brilliant performances (especially from the three leading ladies) and quite beautiful to boot.

    The final stretch isn't as good, and it's the only reason this isn't a perfect score. 80% of The Favourite is hands down one of the best movies of the year though.

  • Halloween



    A carefully crafted and rather brilliant homage to a horror classic that both refines and builds upon what came before.

    It's a direct continuation of the original film that nails the tone and atmosphere perfectly, offering a mix of deliberate callbacks and fresh new ideas.

    Jamie Lee Curtis makes a spectacular return as Laurie Strode, a woman who's both much tougher and considerably more vulnerable than before.

    Michael Myers has an incredibly unnerving presence. He may not make you jump…

    I'm so glad Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling found each other.
