This movie has no right being as good as it is with it being a sequel to a film made almost 40 years ago (That I would argue isn’t even that good to begin with), reliant on nostalgia & references to that film, and helmed by a new director, yet in a time filled with dumb, boring blockbusters consisting of overwhelming amounts of CG like Jurassic World: Dominion, Tom Cruise brings us a genuinely entertaining, well crafted blockbuster that’s made almost entirely using practical effects. It’s refreshing to see, and given its success, I hope other studios begin to take note and follow.
Orson Welles's 1941 masterpiece Citizen Kane is a monumental film, one where just the sheer idea of talking about it is daunting. It's
a film measured by great importance, constantly argued as being the greatest motion picture ever made. Weather you agree or disagree with this, it's undeniable how impactful Welles's feature directing debut has been on cinema since it's initial release.
The title alone has almost become a phrase in itself, essentially used as an alternative way of calling…
I’ve always wanted to explore more of Sidney Lumet’s career having shamefully only seen 12 Angry Men, which is extraordinary, and Murder On The Orient Express, that whole thoroughly enjoyable, was admittedly nowhere near as good.
Network is a spectacular film. It immerses you With is incredibly compelling and detailed script, and the actors all bring so much depth to the characters they play and the lines they deliver, specifically Peter Finch and Faye Dunaway.
It’s Lumet’s brilliant vision though…
