  • Alien: Covenant

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★★

    Honestly, both this and Prometheus are very good films and I will never understand the negativity surrounding these two. 

    I see an intriguing, exhilarating, superbly acted piece of scifi, which I'm very excited to see again. Well done Ridley Scott.

  • The Glass Castle

    The Glass Castle

    ★★★

    we're making this serious drama so let's cast Max Greenfield as the fiancee, he's so good in New Girl 

    Honestly the person who came up with that idea is in the wrong business. I love New Girl though.

    It's kind of a good drama film with quality acting from Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson (monumentally wasting Naomi Watts in the process). 

    if only it wasn't somewhat ruined by the dumb ending where the daddy gets an undeserved redemption.

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★

    After having the time to check the actor's name and eventually finding out the intriguing fact that he's deaf in real life too, I had to dedicate another review to praise the most heart-warming thing in Baby Driver.

    I am obviously talking about CJ Jones' brilliantly heartfelt performance as Baby's ever-so-caring and worrying foster father. Definitely amongst my favourite things in the film. So, well done CJ.

    You don't belong in that world (in sign language)

  • The Evil Dead

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★

    Disgusting, disturbing, distracting. 

    Sam Raimi's 1981 classic Evil Dead really, really deserves to be called horror. And it probably still remains as his most wonderful directorial achievement. 

    I don't even consider myself as a horror fan, but making a horror film this raw, wild and daring, without much false notes, certainly earns my respect.

    And that ending is just stunning. Wow.
