  • The Room

    The Room

    The Room is a cinematic landmark. A film so inept in every conceivable way that it's hilarious some kind of strange miracle. This time I got to see it in a cinema and the audience interaction is worth the price of admission let alone the film. If you've heard rumours about what happens at these showing they're pretty much all true even the spoon throwing and American football catching. Such a rare subsection of films can get this much love…

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★

    Finally after all this time I have finally seen Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch, I can confirm it is great and offers so much for fans of Anderson's work but not much to change naysayers minds on his films. The overall structure is like a newspaper with the different stories and small editors touches that make for a unique style even for Wes Anderson. It's his least emotional film but also his most fun where it almost feels like every…

    Where the Crawdads Sing

    I was hoping I'd agree more with audiences than critics on this film but unfortunately critics are right about this one. It's very basic and while that's not always a problem in this case the clichés undermine any interest in the central mystery. The main problem is the romance plots aren't fleshed out and both of them suffer from the men involved in them being written as if this were a wattpad romance fan-fiction. There's some stuff that works like…

  • A Chiara

    A Chiara

    ★★★

    A Chiara is a very unique coming of age film with an angle on growing up that the more I think about the more I like it but the pacing just didn't work too well for me. The slow scene setting portions didn't do much for me but once the plot properly starts and the themes come through I appreciated it a lot more. There's plenty of quality acting throughout although some characters could have done with more development so…

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    The fact this film was funded by a major Hollywood studio and actually got made is a miracle considering how uncommercial Robert Eggers' films can be. The Northman is exactly how you do an epic, the plot is simple but the technical aspects such as the superb direction and cinematography elevate this story from conventionality to pure cinematic bliss and masterful atmosphere. Scenes have great coverage of all going on in them and those small background details and moments make…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★★

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the best film in the franchise yet as it ventures into new territory while still remaining true to the previous installments. The investigation part of these films has always been what's interested me most and this film engages with that more so than ever before as well as simultaneously keeping the character arcs of the Warrens and the primary storyline engaging. There are some jumpscares in here but thinking back on…
