    A decent new adaptation, fun but too superficial. Very Amblin meets Nightmare on Elm St. The Losers are great, it's often funny but maybe TOO funny, it undermines the tension. Mood should have been more sombre. Thing is, first scene is horrific af, hinting at a much better film, then it progressively loses its impact. What a shame

    I really like the new Pennywise at least, so creepy, a great new incarnation by Bill Skarsgård.

    Love Actually


    Letterboxd is going to be interesting as an external influence is making me watch films I truly do not want to. Such as this. Or in this case, rewatch it. Love. Actually has recently been comprehensively demolished, and rightly so.

    Does this deserve its reputation as the worst, most heinous film ever made? Are we being too harsh? Are us, UK based bloggers, too easily giving a pass to American rom-coms while being too severe on their home grown counterparts?…

    Jupiter Ascending


    An exhilarating and exquisite space folly, that is surprisingly involving and enormous fun.

    The art direction is more 70's/80's French sci-fi graphic novels (with whom the film shares a punk/queer sensibility) than modern calibrated blockbusters, which is why some will call it "silly".

    Proving that they still have the knack for it, the Wachowskis deliver some of the most exciting action scenes of recent memories and some fantastic set pieces (the chase in Chicago, the "eye of Jupiter" section...)
