    Ex Machina


    Endlessly intriguing and entertaining with career best performances by Domnhall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander. Isaac especially is AMAZING. Still one of my favourites for the genre and for the decade.

    About Time


    Rewatched this for my Domnhall Gleeson double feature. For my Richard Curtis enthusiast self, this is one the most pleasant, most heartwarming films of the decade, just too lovely for me to say anything negative about it. Great ensemble cast with Gleeson doing a great job in his ”Hugh Grant of 2010’s”-role, Bill Nighy and Tom Hollander stealing the show, Lindsay Duncan and Rachel McAdams also delivering. Love the soundtrack too.

    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.

    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.
