    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    For me, this is the biggest franchise decline I've ever seen.

    The Curse of the Black Pearl has always been a go-to movie for me, and Dead Man's Chest just grew the Pirates world. I loved the huge sets, fun script and the sense of adventure. The costumes, soundtrack and scale of production were all just amazing and I just had a really great time.

    At World's End bored me to tears, but just managed to scrape enough good material…

    ★★★★★

    This is my second viewing and it’s just made me even more certain that this film is absolutely perfect.

    Impulsive, uncontrollable passion coupled with bittersweet longing and regrets - all shot around splashing water, light dappling through Summer orchards and the breezy balcony of an Italian villa in the baking heat.

    I could watch this a thousand more times and go through exactly the same emotions. Timothée Chalamet and the rest of the cast blew me away. The soundtrack is magical. One of my favourites of all time.

    I feel like I've been in a coma for the past twenty years. And I'm just now waking up.

    What is your purpose in life? How do you see yourself? How do you interact with other people? Is your life turning into one big routine?

    This film teaches you how to look closer at life, discover new things, and have a better understanding and appreciation of human nature. Never judge a book by its cover; there is always much more hidden underneath the surface.

    An amazingly inspirational piece with a stunning score from Thomas Newman. Sam Mendes does us proud.

    The Shawshank Redemption

    ★★★★★

    Shawshank may not be THE best film ever made, but is certainly one of them.

    One of the most impressive King adaptations, and shows the entire cast at their greatest.

    It expresses the need for friendship, bravery, freedom, and above all - hope.
