    Cold War

    ★★★

    Cold War is a beautiful film.

    It's the one phrase I could come up with when I said to myself "I should write something about Cold War". In all fairness, its 3 o'clock in the morning, so maybe that's why I'm drawing a blank. Cold War didn't deter my thoughts and feelings, nor did it challenge my perspectives or result in a reaction I'd remark as "out of the ordinary" but it was just a beautiful film. Nothing more, nothing…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    When I think of what I want in a superhero film, this is it. I am not the biggest fan of the genre, even if I am fond of some entries in the ever-expanding MCU, in all fairness, I am relatively sick of the superhero catalogue of films. After the trainwreck that was Ant-Man and The Wasp and the frankly hilarious Venom, I just became tired of it all. However, the character of Spider-Man has never faded in its relativity…

    ★★★★

    Wow, this was a beautiful film. So many visually experimental moments that could've fallen flat but really stand out as some of my favourites from an animated film. The backgrounds are so wonderfully designed that I was focused on them more than I was the characters at some points. Also, that animation at the start was simply wonderful, would love an entire film like that (if anyone can point me in the direction of one).

    But my oh my, this…

    ★★★★★

    I've been a fan of fly-on-the-wall filmmaking since I saw Frederick Wiseman's High School which instantly became my favourite documentary of all time after my first watch earlier last year. Something about the aesthetic really spoke to me, ironic considering that these films rely on the absence of spoken-word. The opposite was something that always detracted a lot from docs when I watched them. Too much talking from people who have read up on a situation rather than lived it,…

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    A glorified wiki page transformed into a standard, pandering and abysmal retelling of a story which has been watered down to appeal to the biggest demographic known to man, to rake in more money and bank off of the names and art created by people who don't deserve to even be remotely related to a product of this quality.

  • Lover

    Lover

    Take a shot everytime someone smokes and you'll die 20 minutes in.

    Maybe if this was free on YouTube I wouldn't be as pissed off.
    Maybe if $10,000 wasn't sunk into this I wouldn't be as pissed off.
    But here I am, with $5 less in my pocket because I chose to watch Lover.

    Lover was directed by Ralph Sepe Jr. notable for his YouTube channel, ralphthemoviemaker. I quite like Ralph's content; I think he makes good videos. I also…
