    Godzilla Minus One

    ★★★★★

    To have never gone to war is something to be proud of.

    Rest in peace Kenpachiro Satsuma, your spirit will live eternally.

    To say that Godzilla Minus One is my most anticipated movie of the year is a severe understatement. It currently holds the candle for my most anticipated movie ever. The wait has been agonising, less so for my brother who I brought along for what is our first experience seeing Godzilla on the big screen. For the better…

    Balloon Boy is an actual fucking menace who needs to be stopped at all costs.

    ★★★

    A wildly entertaining film, that doesn't shy away from the truth while throwing some extra gasoline onto an already-lit fire, Zillion chugs along to the tunes of eurobeat and 90s techno charting the grandeur and decadence of a cantankerous geek. Behind the lasers, thundering beats, podium dancers on all levels, coke by the kilo and a deluge of cash lies a film that's part The Social Network, yet high-colour and larger than life, eye-watering and flashy with an artistic direction that's clearly there to touch on nostalgic heartstrings.

    ★★★½

    A delicious throwback to the hyperkinetic spectacles of 80s Hong Kong cinema, Flash Point is packed with lightning-fast, extensively blistering one-on-one fighting and manic bloodstained gunplay that would make even John Woo proud. The third collaboration between star, Donnie Yen, and director, Wilson Yip, the film does admittedly suffer from its uneven pacing, extremely noticeable anachronisms and clichéd plot we've already seen a thousand times. Yet this stripped-down unpretentious actioneer essentially amounts to an 87-minute freight train of Donnie Yen…

    ★★★★★

    Is that it?

    Tobe Hooper would be proud.

    Wild Blue Yonder was the one we knew the least about going in and holy fuck did that pay off for Russell because this got very fucked up very fast. Next to no guest cast other than the core TARDIS team? Check. Isolated location? Check. Going into full on horror mode? Absolutely yes!

    Wild Blue Yonder takes a multitude of inspiration from many classic films, be it The Thing, The Exorcist and…
