• Now, Voyager

    Now, Voyager

    ★★★★★

    Like all great melodramas, flipped between I Am Almost Unbearably Moved and This Person Has to Go to Prison on a scene by scene basis.

  • Nude Tuesday

    Nude Tuesday

    ★★

    For this to work, it needed to be way more uncanny or way more direct. And one of the two films needed to be funnier. Jemaine Clement's penis is quite good, if you were wondering.

  • Bride of Chucky

    Bride of Chucky

    ★★★★

    There's still time to give Jennifer Tilly a Barbara Crampton style elder scream queen era. Don't fuck this up for me! My girlfriend asked me to say that the doll was sexier after it became Tiffany.

  • Right Now, Wrong Then

    Right Now, Wrong Then

    ★★★★½

    No one can put me in a blind panic re. alcohol like HSS

  • The High Note

    The High Note

    ★★★

    Making up a guy to get mad at is fine if the guy is Diplo. Tracee is having an absolute blast, June Diane Raphael is perfect, just a lovely undemanding trifle.

  • Terms of Endearment

    Terms of Endearment

    ★★★★★

    Using my time machine to go back and give Shirley the Academy Award she deserves for The Apartment, so Deborah can get the one SHE deserves for this. V funny that the (horrible!) score got a nom, also funny that DeVito manage to pull 4th billed?! Do you think Jeff Daniels still resents him for that

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★★★

    Imagine how many goals Prey's second half would score against Prey's first half

  • Benedetta

    Benedetta

    ★★★★½

    "Jesus didn't mention you", Benedetta inventing going in two footed in the 17th century damn

  • The Ladykillers

    The Ladykillers

    ★★★

    Structurally an absolute disaster, and some of these Coen Characters feel like xeroxes, but... it's really funny! Maybe that's enough! Helluva final shot.

  • Star 80

    Star 80

    ★★★

    No one does grimy glamour like Bob but I can't say I love being reminded of Lords of Chaos

  • The Conjuring 2

    The Conjuring 2

    ★★★

    This still never goes hard enough, but every time i watch (a truly insane thing to say about The Conjuring 2!) i find something new to like - this time it's Wan's long takes, which have never been better. Still very funny that the real Warrens weren't hot and didn't love each other!

  • Welcome II the Terrordome

    Welcome II the Terrordome

    ★★★★½

    A knockout. Looks absolutely incredible, in particular the aftermatch of the inciting incident will just be seared into my skull forever. Suzette Llewellyn blew me away, and now i find out she's got 31 combined years on EastEnders and Holby City?! Sensational
