    Ready Player One


    A tender and imaginative tribute to the screen-addict geeks in all of us that under the direction of one of cinema's greatest grandpas wisely reminds us to just give it a rest for once, you'd have to be a complete and utter miseryguts to keep your brain on and just feel overwhelmed by this steroid-powered nostalgia spectacle beyond the Shining challenge.


  • Annihilation



    Annihilation is the ultimate eco-horror, like no other CG spectacle ever released theatrically, and Alex Garland directs his characters with an authenticity and nuance that post-fame Denis Villeneuve could only dream of. I can't think of a film of such production values with this much A24 influence! Though to be fair, I’d be more invested in the story if I didn’t have to pause so bloody much to add notes to this rant about how wrong its treatment is.

    The horses dab.

    That is all.

    My Life as a Zucchini


    When you ask an American where babies come from:
    "Babies come from a factory and storks deliver them. And their hair is dyed like the rainbow before delivery!"

    When you ask a Frenchman where babies come from:
    "Exploding willies."

    This movie is a miracle.
