  • The Apartment

    The Apartment

    ★★★★★

    (Billy Wilder ranking)

    Easily one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long while. The Apartment has stood the test of time and is probably the most monumental and watertight screenplay ever written. 

    Each scene and each character plays a part in the overall story of this 60s classic. The pacing is fantastic, the dialogue and interactions are all laced with humour and wit and an unbeknownst cynicism that you can’t help but love. 

    I can imagine this was…

  • Inland Empire

    Inland Empire

    ★★★★½

    (David Lynch ranking)

    Well, Mr. Lynch you might have outdone yourself on this one.

    Inland Empire tells the story of an actress named Nikki (Laura Dern) who gets a part in a film about an adulterous relationship. She starts to lose her grip on reality as her own life begins to mirror that of her characters’. 

    The way the story is told is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Because Nikki doesn’t know whether she is acting or it is in…

  • The Lady Vanishes

    The Lady Vanishes

    ★★★

    (Alfred Hitchcock ranking)

    My deep dive into Hitchcock’s filmography continues and I have to say I wasn’t as impressed with The Lady Vanishes as much as I thought I would be. 

    All of what makes Hitchcock a great director is here for all to see, but it’s evident that he hasn’t quite honed his craft by this point. 

    Certain things like the reveal at the end didn’t quite work for me. It wasn’t necessarily a revelation of sorts or a…

  • Nobody Knows

    Nobody Knows

    ★★★★★

    (Hirokazu Kore-eda ranking

    This was the equivalent of wanting to watch a Studio Ghibli movie expecting joy and happiness and then you pick Grave of the Fireflies. 

    Hirokazu Kore-eda what have you done to me man? This was heartbreaking, sad, tragic, the exact opposite of what I’ve come to expect from the Japanese auteur, but it’s easily one of the best movies I’ve seen from him (if not the best). 

    What starts as a nice little family drama with some…

  • The Dark Knight

    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★★

    You know it’s great when it makes you feel the same emotions it did when you first saw it. You know what’s coming and it’s still got you by the jaffas. 

    The best comic book movie of all time. The best superhero movie of all time. It has set the bar so high I really don’t think it will ever be topped.  

    I mean, theres so much I love about this:
    The Why So Serious speech still gives me…

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★

    (2020 ranking)

    An unflinching and dogged blend of revenge thriller and black comedy, Promising Young Woman is an vital movie for the ages.  

    The importance of this story is unparalleled, it needed to be told and people (men) need to be educated on this topic in the most blunt and unfiltered way possible and that’s what Promising Young Woman does. 

    However, it does play with your moral compass slightly as it puts the ‘two wrongs making a right’ argument…
