    Geoff T's Pixar Marathon #2
    A Bug's Life (1998)

    So after Toy Story, there was no stopping Pixar from continuing on, and so came their second feature film. With John Lasseter directing again, A Bug's Life had the unfortunate luck of coming out around the same time as Dreamworks' similarly-themed Antz. Whenever one film was inspired by the other has been a subject of much debate, but to hell with that.

    A Bug's Life is essentially a retelling of the…

    Geoff T's Pixar Marathon #1
    Toy Story (1995)

    It's been overdue for a long, long time, but better than late than never. I think it's time to me to finally revisit the Pixar filmography from beginning to end, obviously starting with their first ever feature film.

    Now, the recent allegations regarding John Lasseter's misconduct (or 'inappropriate hugs') have had me disappointed, but I can't downplay his role as one of Pixar's founding fathers. What can I say about this film…

    Incredibles 2

    Going to be on hiatus for a bit to avoid Incredibles 2 spoilers as it doesn't release in Britain until next month, and also because I'm having some personal issues right now. Otherwise, I shouldn't be gone too long.

    Thank you all for understanding.

    ★★★★★

    As chaotic as The Killer was, Woo still had yet to bring out the big guns (literally). Luckily for us, he went all-out and more with Hard Boiled, an 2-hour long action extravaganza that's quite possibly his most explosive effort to date. What can I honestly say? This was my introduction to Hong Kong action-cinema, and it's no wonder that I've been hooked on it ever since. It dig it that much.

    Chow-Yun Fat plays Officer "Tequila" Yuen, a "hard-boiled"…

    ★★★★½

    Geoff T's Hoop-Tober 2.0 Challenge
    Killer Alien Double Bill #2
    The Thing (1982)

    NOTE: This review has been edited and revised excessively over time to fit my changing style.

    Yeah, I'll always have a soft spot for this one. The Thing stands as one of my all-time favourite sci-fi/horror films. Hell, I'd even consider it the best thing that John Carpenter ever did. This was my first ever exposure to the director's work, as well as Kurt Russell, and since…

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★½

    NOTE: As of October 31st, one major actor name has been removed from this review for obvious reasons.

    Edgar Wright has done it again.

    I've always been a massive fan of his work since the Cornetto trilogy, so of course that Baby Driver was on my horizon for a good while. I knew I'd love it, but my expectations were surpassed immensely. Action-packed, well-cast, and brilliantly-directed from start to finish, it pretty much has everything I'd want in this kind…
