    ½

    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

    ★★★★½

    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.
