  • Léon: The Professional

    Léon: The Professional

    At first I liked this movie. And then I didn't.

    Leon: the Professional has an average of a 4.1/5 on Letterboxd, a Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, an IMDB score of 8.5/10 and is objectively Luc Besson’s greatest work, though that’s not saying much. It features an outstanding debut by Natalie Portman, one of Gary Oldman’s best performances to date, and is hailed by many as one of the greats of the 90s. Yet it was inspired by Besson’s…

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    bo burnham's specials have always been birthed from his sadness, his ailing mental health, and the unique lens of irate pessimism and resigned apathy he seems to view the world through. it takes a lot of talent for him to be so honest with his audience (to the point where it becomes borderline oversharing), and yet package it in such an inscrutably digestible and catchy musical way that people don't feel the criticism, they just get swept along in the…

    Dune

    ★★

    Too lazy to write a proper review for Dune so here's the exact text-conversation I had with my best friend -- he loved it and asked me to watch it so I basically live-texted him (be warned many spelling errors and general unfiltered thoughts -- all not to be taken too seriously)

    Me: so im like 75% of the way through dune and i was neutral at the start
    Me: but my distaste is growing lmao
    Me: maybe the last…

    Interstellar

    ★★★½

    Interstellar was beautifully shot and poignant in many a scene, but it was also empty and cold where Nolan should have really capitalised on emotion. While it seems like a tad more personal compared to his other films, with the aspect of emotion, Interstellar appears largely unfocused and rather vague, suffering from a lack of precision and a dull pacing that destroyed the otherwise fluent storyline. Too much time was dedicated explaining details of scientific concepts to "best engineer and…

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

    ★★★½

    Though filler episode it undoubtedly was, Mockingjay P1 was more than supplementary in both heart and direction.

    Mockingjay P1 boasts a stellar, award-winning cast; fan-favourite Jennifer Lawrence shines, as per usual, and newcomers to the series Julianne Moore and Natalie Dormer show their dedication to their roles - but let's face it, A-list actresses like them could have produced a solid performance in their sleep. There was nothing terrifically spectacular about their conduct. (Not that it didn't require effort on…
