    Insidious: The Red Door


    Story lost me pretty quickly. Dalton isn't a particularly interesting character and most of the screen time is him investigating a mystery the audience already knows the answers to, which means there is little to keep you engaged other than the scares.

    Liked the lighting. Not enough Rose Byrne or Elise

    Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes & Huntsmen, Part One


    Blake saw Yang looking at those biceps and said 'we need to get that girl home right 👏 now 👏'.

    Issue with crossovers in general is that it's not the best of the best for either of the IPs. Like this isn't a great RWBY story and it's not a great DC story.

    You'd think that RT teaming up with WBA would mean WB lend a few coins for the animation but they went with RWBYs style instead which does…

  • The World to Come

    The World to Come


    This was so... Idk.. stirring? That's the only word I can think to use to describe the very physical hold this had on me. Its atmosphere is so dramatically tense, charged, romantic, and dangerous that I felt on edge watching it — in ways that were delightful and at times not.

    Third act is a bit of a slog but the gorgeous cinematography, music, and editing paired with the insightful (if not slightly trite and self-indulgent) journal-like storytelling had me…

  • Fremont



    If you ever feel as if the slice-of-life character piece is dying, visit a film festival and have a piece of work like Fremont set you straight. A festival is one of the few remaining places people will unironically sit down for a slug-paced black-and-white picture about a woman who, throughout her own film, barely speaks.

    It’s where you’re met with new movies that purposefully bore, confuse, or piss you off — the sort people joke about on TikTok, pointing…

  • Blue Beetle

    Blue Beetle


    Very CW, but a lovely movie. Likable characters, genuine stakes, decent action, and actually has some things to say.

    Definitely a family movie, and for its target audience I think it works much better than a lot of the duller, more serious MCU/DC stuff.

    Could've done without boner jokes. I'm of the opinion one is one too many. This had two

    Like 15 minutes too long but the Jlaw comeback is in full swing! This and Causeway wildly different movies but so good in both.

    I've never liked the sex comedy genre, mostly because they historically have not targeted me as an audience member, but I really appreciated the modern spin on this while still being very funny.

    Between the likes of this and Blockers etc., maybe I can like these 🤷🏻‍♀️

    The First Wives Club


    New comfort movie unlocked... This served cunt in a myriad of ways.

    I simply wasn't wise enough the first time I saw it. Some outdated humour but the script has aged so well otherwise, the chemistry between the cast is everything, and it's just buckets of fun.

    Also, the "policewoman by day, hooker by night" poster in the background of the producer's office😭.

    Has some lulls but I love it anyway!

  • Heart of Stone

    Heart of Stone


    Usually these are halfway enjoyable but this... Oh my god. Gal Gadot having the week from hell.

    It's literally 1 hours 15 minutes in before I even smiled watching this. Almost an entire movie length before it had even a shred of humour, personality, or depth.

    When it gets to what it's actually about — and make no mistake, The Mother and co. genre is about distant spy ladies protecting younger women they relate to or use as a therapeutic…

    If you're into movies where characters are so creepy they seem like aliens wearing zip-up human suits, oh boy do I have a movie for you!

    Slaps you in the face a bit, in tone and in other ways, but this was a pretty gnarly little horror that had a unique childlike slant on it I really enjoyed. Kept me on my toes, delivered high on the creep factor, and unleashes a wild third act that reminded me of how…

    Joy Ride


    Like 20 mins into this I realised I really should have seen it with an audience. Good thing.

    Feels like it's missing about 10 mins somewhere towards the end of the 2nd act but overall really fun and great cast. Have seen Ashley Park popping up a few places and thoroughly enjoy her every time I see her.

    Usually hate the dramatic subplots in these formulaic girls trips movies but thought the birth mother stuff was done well too.

    Made me laugh and had a similar tone/style to Booksmart, so, yeah. Good

  • Oppenheimer



    A nightmare of a movie, which is what I was hoping it would be. And it's constructed in a way that's hypnotic — the sound and editing in particular had me glued to me seat.

    Similarly to Dunkink there were moments I caught myself holding my breath, noise so overwhelming it felt like my head was about to split open, and tension so severe I was literally sweating (trinity test).

    I do think it's a shame it spends so much…

  • Barbie



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

    Adore how sincere this was. Wasn't afraid to just say exactly what it meant without fear of being called too obvious, trite, or alienating.

    Favourite moments were when it was just fully leaning into its weird qualities, or Margot Robbie's Barbie having these heartfelt connections to the human experience.

    Only niggles are no gay Barbies, which is absolutely insane and would have done a lot for what's already there thematically in the text, and while I enjoyed Gosling's Ken stuff…
