    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    Ramsay makes sure every shot in this film is uncomfortable, with context or without (I am the context.). And nothing is more uncomfortable than any shot were Tilda Swinton is made to look remarkably similar to Ezra Miller. It's harrowing, but darkly comedic too, in a way, as the plot really pushes the limits of human empathy and understanding.

And then came the delay, goodbye to WhatsApp group 'Dune 2020', and hello…

    Not only did this blow the previous Suicide Squad out of the water, not that that was a difficult thing to do, but it is actively a great, hilarious, entertaining, and unique-feeling film. It's certainly the best thing DC have done in their 2010s output.

    This was all a really pleasant surprise because I was expecting something mildly enjoyable from the trailer, but found myself laughing throughout, with a brilliant cast of interestingly powered "superheroes" and such treats as Peter…
