• Antlers



    Finally the sequel to Bambi we deserve.

  • Howl's Moving Castle

    Howl's Moving Castle


    I rewatched this through the eyes of my children today and their enthrallment made me appreciate it even more than I did the first time I watched it many years ago.

    I remember having problems with the way it structured its story, that it felt a bit uneven. But now it all sort of clicked. 'It's just a love story, dad.' is what my 9 year old daughter said. And I guess it's as simple as that. The dance Howl…

  • Encanto



    I'll start by saying that I did not care for the songs that much. That's on me, I rarely do. They weren't bad or anything, I'm just not a fan of musicals which this in essence is.

    I absolutely loved everything else though.

    I'd say this is the least formulaic Disney has been in quite some time with its animated features. I know, I know, it looks like just about anything that comes out these days and reeks of 'WE…

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up


    Didn't really understand what it was all about, but sure did like watching all them big Hollywood folk chatting!

  • A Boy Called Christmas

    A Boy Called Christmas

    Santa's origin story.

    Still does not make me like Christmas.

    My son kept mumbling 'Sick edits' whenever there was a visual transition in the story.

    I'll give it that. It has some. Hidden among the saccharine yuckiness that is surprisingly devoid of colour and joy a movie like this should probably have.

    But what the fuck do I know. I hate Christmas.

  • V/H/S/94


    1 - No

    2 - No

    Final verdict - No

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems


    Sometimes you need the quiet moments to appreciate the storm raging around you. Uncut Gems allows you just enough moments in the eye of the storm to calmly gaze at the epic tragedy whirling around you, only to suck you back in with triple the force.

    This film is a fucking hurricane.

  • No Time to Die

    No Time to Die


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

    I am fully aware that this rating is inflated because of the very simple fact that this closes off an era of something that was very dear to my heart.

    Bond has always been a big part of my life. I started with Connery, an actor my mum had a huge crush on, and was always enthralled by the lightness of the adventure, the charm, the grandness of the good versus evil at stake. After that, as an avid reader…

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage


    Exactly what I'd thought would happen if Gollum directed a movie.

  • Censor



    Easily one of the most memorable horror movies of the past year.

    I love finding a film that has such a commitment to its unique premise and tone. Sporting an excellent cast with yet another strong, female central performance, this is the type of film you just have to let happen to you. If you're on board you'll have a grand ride, I assure you.

    I'm not going to say anything else about this other than that you should go in blind and enjoy.

  • Red Notice

    Red Notice

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

    If you think Ed Sheeran's cameo is the worst thing in this you don't love movies enough to hate them.

  • Old


    Unbelievable, transformative experience.

    Aged about 50 years watching it.

    Shyamalan is a wizard.

    He can make talented actors forget they can act.

    He can make audiences forget they love movies.

    And he can fuck right off and actually make a half descent film again where it isn't all about him and his supposed brilliance as a writer/director so he actually can rely on the talents of others instead of his own misguided messiah of cinema complex.

    OK. So that last bit is perhaps a bit much but I'm pretty sure most of you know exactly what I mean.
