    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★★

    Funny, infuriating, and exactly as pointed as it needs to be. A great script, well made, and good lord, it's well acted. John David Washington immediately joins Adam Driver in the ranks of Actors I Will Watch In Anything, and nobody gets to shit on what's-his-face about Venom ever again, because his Racist Ned Flanders was one of the year's best, most hissable anagonists.

    Good soundtrack too.

    The most damning thing to say about 4DX is that it doesn't do much for Gravity, a film that's dizzying and breathtaking and frankly frightening even without your seat moving around in tandem with the on-screen action. But I haven't rewatched this since the last time it was on at the cinema and it's only reaffirmed that it's a purely cinematic experience for me.

    Bellshit.

    ★★★★

    Hey, guess what? It's nothing like the trailers. It's actually funny, actually scary, and, because there isn't a bottom half to read under a movie, it's 100% dickhead proof.

    The one thing that nobody seemed to actually buy ahead of this was that it could be both a remake and a passing of the torch. It turns out that it's both of those things and while it certainly bows to the original as much as, say, The Force Awakens does…
