• The Sadness

    The Sadness

    ★★★★

    THE SADNESS (哭悲) is violent, a gore-fest, deprived, un-compromising, dirty, destructive, unique. 

    I have not seen an infected film like this before, @RobJabbaz pull no punches, he put it all out and the result is one of the best horror films of the past 20 years.

  • Eastern Promises

    Eastern Promises

    ★★★★★

    David Cronenberg have some spectacular films, mostly acclaim for his body horror stuff. 

    But EASTERN PROMISES is probably my 2nd or 3rd best Cronenberg film. 

    The story is nothing outrageous is the way is presented, the details, the cast the violence, what a film.

  • Gone in Sixty Seconds

    Gone in Sixty Seconds

    ★★★

    GONE IN 60 SECONDS is a freaking blast, the cast, the music, is anything to hate here? Yes, is the classic anti-hero story but so what? It works for what it is.

    Cage, Jolie, Patton, Olyphant, Lindo, McBride, the car chase, so re-watchable.

    Eleanor, have mercy!

  • X

    X

    ★★★½

    X is….. so fucking great! Brittany Snow shines! 

    The allegorical undertones of society sees porn and sexuality are well flesh out by Ty West. 

    And everything nicely wrapped with sex, horror & Rock and Roll!

  • Citizen Kane

    Citizen Kane

    ★★★★

    The influence of CITIZEN KANE is modern cinema is undelayable, the non-linear story telling, wide angle takes, the play with perspective, a masterclass in cinema making.

    A film every film fan needs to watch (at least once) and every physical media collector MUST own.

  • Turning Red

    Turning Red

    ★★★★

    TURNING RED is another one of those PIXAR films that speaks to every generation and will keep relevant in every chapter of your life. 

    A perfect coming of age film with the exact amount of laughs so doesn’t feel like is preaching or been melodramatic. 

    Just perfect.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★½

    THE BATMAN is a dark knight I have only read in comic books. Bleak, destructive, a noir crime drama beautifully shoot with a magnificent score.

    Pattinson & Kravitz are fantastic as is the rest of the cast, the cinematography is a protagonist in itself, Reeves delivered big.

    If you take away Batman & Co. I feel like I am watching Seven or Zodiac, it doesn’t rely on the brand but in the story they are trying to say. 

    A broken character, a guy with a mountain on his shoulder, no heroics, no glorified speech just another day in the life of THE BATMAN.

  • The Skulls

    The Skulls

    ★★★

    THE SKULLS, an entertaining noir-thriller with a solid cast (happily surprised William Petersen & Steve Harris are in it) and great pace.

    My only issue is the ending could it been better but I might be asking to much, overall a fun film that don't overstay its welcome.

  • The Hurt Locker

    The Hurt Locker

    ★★★★½

    Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Guy Pearce, David Morse, Ralph Fiennes & Evangeline Lilly and directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

    Let's take a minute to contemplate the amount of talent in those names and why THE HURT LOCKER is one fantastic piece of cinema.

  • Ghost World

    Ghost World

    ★★★★½

    GHOST WORLD has one of the best movie endings of all time, what a magnificent little film, not a wasted scene and everything begins with a question “What are you going to do now?”.

  • Open Your Eyes

    Open Your Eyes

    ★★★★

    Amenábar was in another level in the 90's, ABRE LOS OJOS is about a moment, a split decision and the ramifications of it, the line between a dream and a nightmare.

    A psychological drama with horror undertones, Amenábar was thinking outside the box at the time.
