    Are you Lena?”

    Annihilation is the next evolutionary cinematic tale comparable to Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. A seismic structure of destructive human nature collided with relentless scientific in-probability, quests such an atmospheric, mind-bending, exhilarating tale of the next evolutionary process. Alex Garland’s mesmerising ordeal of breaking one down, in-order to rebuild, a subtextual codex that delves into the deciphering of thematic prejudice of life itself, and the angst of the unknown. It excites. It frightens. It will leave you staggered. Ex Machina left me sleepless. Annihilation left me speechless.

    “In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives”

    Avengers: Infinity War is an incredibly ballsy film, far more so than the recent controversy surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It doesn’t evolve storytelling, or filmmaking for that matter. If you’re an avid fan of the franchise you won’t find…

    ”In the end, we all get caught”

    1922 is a coarse gothic horror masterpiece. The tectonic plates of corruption and greed, grind together with sparks of blind fury, burning a plight of treacherous bloodlust in its wake. Thomas Jane is fabulous, perhaps even his best performance to date. The clogs of animalistic intentions are turning and the torturous nihilistic venom of human nature sticks around like the burning sweat in the hot sun,…

    “Doing the right thing is messy. You want to fight for what's right, sometimes you have to fight dirty”

    If you go into Deadpool 2 wanting the same as its predecessor, you’re going to be content as it’s an exact replica of what Tim Miller made two years previous, and while that’s perhaps good for the fans, it doesn’t strike any prosperity for longevity. Deadpool 2 doesn’t…

    “Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That's the only way to become what you are meant to be”

    Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi is a bitterly disappointing, flat, tiresome, and ultimately disastrous attempt at wanting to stand out against the norm. The tone is completely utterly wrong for such a massively important episode in a franchise that needs to go darker and embrace…

    Similar to my SPOILER REVIEW of Justice League I’m going to break this review down into sub-categories. Please feel free to comment and Follower.

    I really don’t know where to start, so let’s begin with my biggest discrepancy.
