    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★

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

    Poor Jason Segel!

    Thanks to this film, and Tristan + Isolde, I've now seen two films in a week that contained a Viking Funeral... One of these films was more serious than the other (sorry, Max!)

  • John Wick: Chapter 2

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★½

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

    I didn't like the first one, and I wasn't much sold on this one, either... Now that we're left with the setup for John Wick 3: The Most Dangerous Game, I feel I have the best chance ever of actually enjoying one of these films, next time out...

    What can I say? I guess I prefer my antiheroes to be just that little bit more expressive, even as they're being ruthless.

    I was pleased - if not surprised - that the dog survived this time, though.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★

    With the benefit of hindsight, some experiences teach us to be comfortable in our own skin... However, whilst they are happening, there is the intensity of youthful emotions, dizzyingly expressed.

    I want to live in a Luca Guadagnino film. The environment he creates seems so fresh, and... thrumming with energy.

  • Independence Day: Resurgence

    Independence Day: Resurgence

    Before I watched this, I wasn't sure if we needed a sequel to Independence Day...

    ... Now, I'm CONVINCED that we didn't... The most disheartening thing is, it probably doesn't end, here.
