    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

    ★★★★½

    Whilst a large amount of reception Bandersnatch is receiving seems to revolve around the negative view of it's 'gimmick-y nature' of 'Choose Your Own Adventure' storytelling, what Brooker has once again achieved with a Black Mirror piece, is an extremely thoughtful and in-depth meta-commentary on life through technology, in both 80s video games and their modern counterpart of interactive films.

    It's hard not to tell people that they've missed the point, as art reaches and affects us all differently, but…

    Colette

    ★★★½

    While some may consider its narrative journey cluttered and hasty, Colette subverts the regular story beats and ultimately achieves a refreshing and breezy patchwork of charismatic and stirring scenes, without losing the undercurrent of emotive bedrock that flows beneath.

    Film #3 of the "Scavenger Hunt #4" Challenge
    Task #3 : Film featuring a curse

    Pardon me while I collect myself. I'd drafted a review in my head as I was watching this and the whole thing just got blown out of the water by the last 5 - 10 minutes. How I view watching this film won't be the same. I guess I should've expected something more than a mediocre cliche horror from the creator of Evil Dead…
