    Knives Out

    ★★★★½

    Where to fucking begin. Y'all ain't ready for how good this movie is, and I don't want to get your anticipation too hyped up, but I really don't see how 'Knives Out' could possibly disappoint. Its bloody exceptional, and I'm struggling to think of any flaws with it (it might be my favourite of the year, I'm still processing, but its without a doubt top 3). All you 'Last Jedi' haters out there are gonna have a really have a…

  • Bait

    Bait

    ★★★★½

    Look. I could waffle on about how great 'Bait' is, but I think that might take away from the film’s strange, understated mystique. 'Bait' is something much needed in the age of soulless remakes and endless cash-in sequels; starkly original and unique, and a movie that richly makes use of cinema in an inspired way. Director Mark Jenkin shot the movie on black and white 16mm film, that he hand developed and had overdubbed in post as the print was…

  • Angel Heart

    You know its a shame what has happened to Mickey Rourke. He's been screwed up by plastic surgery, and his movie career seems to have gone down the toilet after playing a shitty Iron Man villain. I was surprised therefore by his performance in 'Angel Heart', which is really goddam special! His character of private detective Harry Angel is in my opinion the definitive portrayal of this type of anti-hero investigator. He's sly, funny and strangely charming, yet he's very…

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★

    I could feel my brain cells marching out of my brain in droves throughout all 130 minutes of this. So, so, so, so, so impossibly dumb. I've watched a lot of Godzilla films. I've seen All Monsters Attack. But without the horrendous dubbing the Toho movies have, the dialogue is laughably corny. And I say laughably, cos yeah it was pretty entertaining. I stuffed my face with popcorn, me and my mate laughed out loud at the baffling script, but…

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★½

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

    Tessa gets her fucking horse!!! 

    Of course I wept at Tony’s funeral, but I unexpectedly teared up early on when they go back to Star Lord dancing in the cave - it was a nostalgia hit from a movie that’s only five years old!

    This was one excellent adventure!
    And my 1000th film!!
