  • The Loved Ones

    The Loved Ones


    a flawlessly executed teen horror ! john hughes meets saw

  • Mandy



    this was CLASS! absolutely visually stunning and gloriously pastiche and fun and Nicolas Cage's performance also gives a really impressive amount of heart to a fairly sparse script and story

    (definitely watch high def on a big TV with proper speakers if you can i rly regret watching on a laptop and also missing it in cinemas cos reckon it would be truly transcendental, tbh it's not a great laptop movie)

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out


    was worried about watching this because of the hype but it really delivered, really simple concept executed with just absolute technical and creative excellence, the cast is GOLD. 2 hours of just solid top-quality entertainment with the perfect balance between campiness and compelling and timely underlying themes. i also loved Daniel Craig's absurd accent idc
