    Amos & Andrew


    Still sadly relevant with its themes of institutional racism and cops who shoot first, ask questions later, Amos & Andrew is an attempt to mix those themes into a broad comedy setting, not entirely successfully. Samuel L Jackson and Nicolas Cage are both good but feel like there in different movies at times, as do some of the supporting cast. An interesting movie, ahead of it’s time in a way, but not completely successful.

  • The Equalizer 3

    The Equalizer 3


    Everyone’s favourite literature-loving vigilante is back, this time purging a costal Italian town of its n’eer do wells with great vengeance and furious anger. Denzel is so great in the lead role, just so charismatic and charming, yet scarily efficient at the violent stuff. And violent it is, with some truly gruesome moments. Antoine Fuqua has learnt his lesson from the previous two in terms of runtime; while those two were over-long and bloated, this one is more streamlined and efficiently paced. I really enjoy these Equalizer films, let’s hope there’s more to come.

    Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory


    The first film ever made and exhibited to a paying audience, the historical importance of The Lumiere Brother's Employees Leaving the Lumiere Factory cannot be overstated. If we didn't have this film, then we wouldn't have Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen! Actually, fuck the Lumiere Brothers! No I don't mean that. Thank you boys.
