    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    ★★★★★

    Despite some cheesy scenes and iffy CGI among other things, I can’t deny how much I love this film. It proves that a film doesn't have to be meticulously crafted to the point where it's cinematic perfection for it to still be amazing. It’s a heartwarming story that implies the importance of exploring, and making your dreams reality. The beautiful cinematography and score help make this tale a joy to watch, and such a great comforting watch. Not only is it it comforting, but it’s inspiring, and really resonates with me.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    Interstellar is and forever will be one of my favourites of all time. I love every single aspect of this film. The characters, the story, the music, the cinematography, the themes, the concepts, all of it. I have no doubt in saying this will go down as a classic, especially in the Sci-Fi genre.

    There’s a lot I can say about this film, I could go on for hours about all the things it does right, but I’ll aim to…

    No Country for Old Men

    ★★★

    I really didn’t think I’d rate this as low I have done, simply because I didn’t expect my opinion on it to change so much in so little time. For the first (and larger) half of this film, I was actually really enjoying it. But, and it’s hard to explain it without getting into spoilers, a particularly plot choice really didn’t work. I can appreciate that it perhaps serves a “greater point” as my friend Josh put it, but it…

    Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich

    ★★★½

    Although it felt somewhat formulaic and a little basic in its approach, and could certainly have been executed better, this tells a very important story and gives a voice to the victims of Epstein’s disgusting acts. The fact that the extent of his paedophilic web is unknown, and yet clearly larger than anyone would think, is horrible; really scary.

    ★★★★★

    Still as fucking brilliant as I remember. A Mind-bending, heart-thumping, mentally-draining masterpiece. To run with an idea so complex and execute it close to perfection is a skill Nolan has proved he is the master of. Theres no need for me to go into further analysis, it’s top cinema in every aspect.

  • Moonlight

    Moonlight

    ★★★★★

    This was one of the most raw, natural, evocative and somewhat cathartic film experiences I’ve had for a long time. Excellent performances, stunning cinematography and class editing amount to presenting this intricate and delicate character study and narrative of growth to manhood in a beautiful manner.
