27. I just really love movies.
Quite possibly the most difficult movie to begin to review. Where would be a good jumping off point, I honestly have no idea. I don't know where to start so I'll just give it a good try.
Mulholland Drive is a dream slowly morphing and twisting into a nightmare. From soft, bright and colourful imagery to darker, grittier, grimy imagery. The movie follows two leads, Betty and Rita, played amazingly, through a plot that unravels, but never too much. This…
Kurosawa crafts a crime thriller like no other here. Every ten minutes something different happens to further the plot. A new clue, a new lead or a new character. The first hour is comprised of talking in the same room, yet it is some of the most intriguing filmmaking I have ever seen. Kurosawa places each person exactly where they need to be in that moment to convey how they feel, their body language, it's fantastic.
The rest becomes investigations,…
I'll get this out the way. I love dinosaurs, alright? I've always loved them and the one star is literally because I got to see some dinosaurs. But, I would have got more enjoyment picking up a kid's picture book of dinos if that's the case. Biases aside, let's move on.
This movie isn't a movie, it feels off in every single way and I can't imagine what was going on during the production and making of this. The magic…

Everything Everywhere All At Once plays out a tale of love, friendship, family and above all else, kindness. Using an amazingly fun and well thought out multiverse premise as it's vessel to tell this story. The…
Absolutely, without a doubt one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. To have a movie simply set in one room, with 12 characters and a court case to be so fantastic is amazing.
The character work is great. Each one had their own reasoning, quirks, backgrounds, ideologies and personal biases. Each one felt fleshed out incredibly well through general conversation alone, every single one acted incredibly well too. My favourite performance was the loud and precise Lee J Cobb…

What I love about Marriage Story,
I love the acting. The way it almost seems too natural and effortless, like it just comes from the soul and leads to brilliant on screen performances. There's chemistry here, but it's so beautifully negative. The argument scene haunts me in a way I can't describe. The way they scream in such a realistic way, the pitch, the tone, saying what they hate rather than love. For a brief moment I thought of Possession,…
