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

    I saw this at BFI London Film Festival thanks to a very generous Sardonicast listener who happened to have a spare ticket, thanks again, Harri!

    A pretty stunning film in every aspect. I don’t really have any problems with the movie but there is plenty I adore about it. This film will be picked apart for a very long time and almost demands multiple viewings to formulate a thorough interpretation.    

    First off, the unique, almost square 1.19:1 aspect…

    I was lucky enough to see the film projected in the Royal Albert Hall in London with a beautiful live orchestra. The soundtrack is my favourite thing about the movie so it was a stunning experience to see the work that goes behind such a vast ensemble of musicians all playing in perfect synchronisation with the film. It especially made me appreciate the compositions and how they perfectly encapsulate the themes and messages of the movie. It’s a fittingly simple…

    This is my Black Panther. This movie empowered me. It helped me get over my rejection from the female known as Wendolene who’d rather date a Chad instead of a true gentleman who would treat her well. Amazing cinematography and a great performance by Shaun, who has fortunately moved on from artsy-fartsy hipster trash like Wallace and Gromit: A Close Shave.

    Let’s be real, if you don’t like this movie? You’re kind of a douche...

  • Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

    Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

    ★★★★★

    Madagascar 2 Escape from mort is an important, seminal film. First off, the emotion wow. The themes of racism hit hard (where something like black kkklansmen did not). First off, the love triangle between gloria, moto moto and melman is striking and honest. When melman (swimmer) finds gloria making out with moto moto his heart is crushed. Oh and we can’t forget about the penguins, who are back and just as epic as ever. The boss baby voices the villian,…
