  • Darkest Hour

    Darkest Hour

    The highlight of this film was two litres of Fionnuala's coke spilling down the cinema aisle and my leg, giving me a sock and shoe that was surely wetter than the patriotic tears of the old British bastards who cried watching this film, coming ever so much closer to their (hopefully soon) demise. 

    THIS IS THE ONLY NEGATIVE LETTERBOXD REVIEW I HAVE EVER WRITTEN.

  • The Mummy

    The Mummy

    Watched with the "Brendan Fraser Commentary."

    Highlights include:
    -referring to himself as "that other guy." 
    -saying "that's gotta hurt" when painful things happen to his character 
    -being unable to hold in his laughter at his co-stars jokes
    -he was actually choked in the hanging scene by the rope 
    -constantly just saying the thoughts he thinks his character is having 
    -the obvious love that he has for this whole film, the cast and crew. 

    The point is that this man IS and forever will be MY MUMMY.

    Light touches of stylisation give…

    Every Day

    Why can't these high-concept YA romance films focus more on the high-concept and less on the romance?? I'm certain their female tween audience is just as hungry for lore as the rest of us!!

    More lore = More $$$$

    Sorry to Bother You

    Shout out to cinema employee @KyleStuart, who was working but still stood and watched the Skype Q&A with Boots Riley after the movie for TWENTY minutes.

  • Maze Runner: The Death Cure

    Maze Runner: The Death Cure

    Imagine, if you will, a dystopian future. One very similar to the sort found in early 2010 YA books. 

    An arena stands. 

    In the past YA franchises would come to this arena and perform deathly defying stunts. Action, romance, horror and fantasy would be incorporated into their acts. 

    In years past, thousands would come to see these performances. Tweens, teens and everything in between. They'd all wear weird futuristic clothing and have names like Rhylo and Meemar. 

    Now the arena…
