    Spirited Away

    ★★★★½

    This is a difficult film to praise, as it feels like anything positive that I muster will just be drowned out by the millions of other words that people on and off this platform have shouted before me. Yet, it's great praise that is to be lauded on Spirited Away, as it is a piece of art that is truly beautiful, wholly innocent and hypnotically exempt of real criticism. Hayao Miyazaki is not a creative I've delved into before this…

    All this talk of whether or not Baz Luhrmann can make meaningful pictures that delve beyond hyper-juiced editing and whacky transitions has always seemed like a waste of time to me. Films like Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet are quintessential films in their respective genres, and, even though they are highly stylised, they are full of heart, emotion, and self-awareness. Critiques like this have always felt out of place when thrown at the likes of Luhrmann, especially after the…

    ★★★½

    I could be wrong, but I think Christopher Nolan has certainly the reached that point in his career where, even if a newly released film of his is remotely underwhelming, he cops a ridiculous, and I mean ridiculous amount of slack for it. Mind you, this is based purely off of what I’ve heard from friends, read in newspapers and seen from you lot on LB in regard to Tenet.

    So of course, I went into my session last night…

    ★★★★★

    To truly understand and get Batman goes beyond knowing Bruce Wayne and his even sadder best friend. It involves understanding his universe, everything around him, his neighbours, his streets, his ethos, what drives him and makes him such a unique yet relatable character in any period. There’s a whole table of elements that have to work in tandem in order to make the absolutely finest representation of Batman, whether that be on the silver screen, in a comic book, or…
