  • The New World

    The New World

    ★★★★★

    "Terry gets incredibly involved in sort of poetic shots [...] he gets lost in that and the stories get diffused, particularly in our film [The New World]." - Christopher Plummer (a legend, R.I.P.).

    Malick tends to use story and characters as window dressing or background noise that adds additional texture in his mood pieces. The New World is a beautiful and meditative film in love with its images and the empty spaces between the narrative. When done right, and Terrence…

  • The Virgin Suicides

    The Virgin Suicides

    ★★★★★

    Wistfully gazing back to clear the haze of the mystical unknown.
    Futilely endeavouring to understand the bewitchingly inscrutable.
    Misty-eyed yearning polluted with a bitter scent.
    Ethereality, bruised.

    Everybody Wants Some!!

    ★★★★★

    "We came for a good time, not for a long time."

    What's better than this? Guys being dudes. Good vibes. The best! I take every possible opportunity to spout off about how I adore hang-out movies, so I'll take this time to state: The hang-out movie is my favourite type of film. There. That's my obligatorily mention for this write-up out of the way. (They pair really well with a bottle of red wine FYI).

    Off the bat I must…

  • Love & Friendship

    Love & Friendship

    ★★★★

    Shot entirely on location in Ireland. That’s the stuff. 

    Beckinsale & Sevigny are an incredible duo. Wish we could’ve seen more of them. 

    When is Stillman gonna make another movie!?

  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★★

    The Force Awakens was amazing! It didn't disappoint. I love it. I love it. I love it so much! The midnight showing was GREAT! The atmosphere was palpable. The first movie I've been to, that's received a unanimous round of applause from the audience, although it was more of a sitting ovation rather than a standing one because I think everyone needed a minute to take it all in. So yeah, Great movie. Thank you, J.J. Abrams.

  • Big Trouble in Little China

    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★★½

    "I'm a reasonable guy. But, I've just experienced some very unreasonable things."

    Well, this is it. This is what I've been looking for recently.

    Big Trouble in Little China has no pretensions, no delusions about what it is. It's is a full blooded, fun, crazy, exciting action adventure. It's pure film, this is what movies should be.

    John Carpenter is one of my favourite directors, so I had some high hopes going in, but my expectations were surpassed on this one.
