    Marriage Story

    ★★★★★

    It doesn’t really take a genius to identify two defining aspects of Noah Baumbach’s filmmaking career. He has been consistently drawing from autobiographical experiences, the most prominent, direct and discussed ad nauseam example of which would be his parents’ divorce in The Squid And The Whale. Though, it has to be noted that within the landscape of these inspirations he has repeatedly revisited the theme of a family (or a relationship) in crisis in Margot At The Wedding, While We’re…

  • True Romance

    True Romance

    ★★★★★

    Besides the film’s obvious overall quality, there are at least three major reasons why anyone trying to understand and contextualize Quentin Tarantino’s work should take a good look at True Romance.

    First of all, one has to consider how much of a milestone in Tarantino’s career this film was. Even though it was released in 1993, a year after his directorial debut Reservoir Dogs, it was his first ever script and at the same time the most autobiographical of all…

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★½

    Top Gun: Maverick is truly a shameless piece of emotional manipulation that has absolutely no reason to exist apart from abusing the audience’s nostalgia for the 1986 Top Gun, which was a block of 80s cheese, hearty and pungent. In turn, this movie is a two-hour artistic installation about nostalgia for cheese where good money was spent to tell me how great this 80s cheese was without either letting me taste it or showing me a good modern recipe that…

  • Army of the Dead

    Army of the Dead

    ★★½

    If there's a way to salvage a painfully mediocre movie, it is to imagine you're watching something else. And it just so happens that Army of the Dead is a stealth remake of Aliens, which turns the viewing experience into an Easter egg hunt. Which is nice.

  • The Road

    The Road

    ★★★★★

    Every single idiot hoping for a zombie apocalypse 'because it will be so cool' should be assigned to have a sit-down with "The road". Brutal, gritty, dull and depressingly sad, this film is probably the closest to what would actually happen in the event of shit hitting the proverbial fan. (Edit: though it has nothing to do with zombies, but a planet dying in a mysterious but straightforward fashion). It's never an easy watch and it does kick you in the stomach more than once, but it is simply a masterpiece.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Disclaimer: I think I should start by apologising in advance in case I lose decorum at some point and devolve into spouting profanity.

    When I first watched James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy, I liked it a lot and thought of it as Star Wars for the modern adolescents. It was nothing like other comic book adaptations and was quite self-contained and it wasn't bogging itself down with tying the film to other entries to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It…
