    Bullet Train

    ★★★★

    David Leitch's cacophony of bloody violence and constant one-up-manship certainly has it's flaws but delivers a damn fun ride from start to finish. With Hiroyuki Sanada cutting down Yakuza thugs to a Japanese cover of Holding Out for a Hero up there as one of the best movie moments of 2022. Also unironically the best episode of Thomas the Tank Engine since 2008.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★★

    The original Top Gun is one of my all-time favourite movies and legacy sequels tend to go one of two ways. Try too little and don't stand out enough thanks to lazy references and pointless fan service, or they fucking nail it and make the already excellent original even better. Top Gun: Maverick went in the best way possible, it's meticulously crafted and respectful of Tony Scott's sunset baked original. Over 36 years after its predecessor and in an IMAX screening nonetheless, this film bloody rocks! Joseph Kosinski and company, I take my hat off to you, I was in genuine tears by the end.

    This time, they are playing with at best the destruction of life as we know it, and at worst total annihilation. You cannot win a nuclear war!

    2018 Remaster

    Nobody who watches Threads emerges the same person on the other side. Nobody who watches Threads watches it again. Nobody watches Threads, they endure it, experience it. They think it. It's often dubbed the most terrifying movie ever made and, after viewing it, I can safely say it is. There are…

    God of Gamblers

    ★★★★

    Original Hong Kong Version

    Even with this ancient DVD print full of screen tearing and damaged frames, God of Gamblers showcases one of Chow Yun-Fat's most versatile performances effortlessly switching back and forth between impeccably suave and utterly adorable on a dime. Backed by the ever-amazing Andy Lau, it's really only two extremely questionable moments that hold this film back from being rated any higher. Even then Wong Jing's intense gambling drama is a classic of Hong Kong cinema and…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Chris Chibnall saw the hit 2022 film Bullet Train and thought to himself "I can do that", then preceded to do so with less than 5 times the budget or writing skill. So much so that the titular train was lost just as quickly as it was introduced with a blur and horrid direction, so nothing has changed since 2018 then…

    Seriously though, as cool as it was to see the Classic Doctors back onscreen again after all these years…

    This is a game changer, Jo. It's the security equivalent of the iPhone.

    So... here we are again. Why do I insist on tossing this era a bone only to be disappointed every single time. They really just went for style over substance yet again. You can tell this was shot prior to the COVID outbreak since the issues it's trying to comment on have been and gone.

    While watching I couldn’t help but notice the striking similarities to the…
