  • Casablanca

    Casablanca

    ★★★★★

    It’s still the same old story. Almost 80 years later and Casablanca remains one of the most iconic films ever made and perhaps the one film that comes to mind when people think of the word ‘movie’. It’s the definition of a classic, but is it a classic because it’s great or is it great because it’s a classic? 

    The truth is that, short of a time machine, there’s really no way to separate the myth and legend of Casablanca

  • Roma

    Roma

    ★★★★★

    I've been sitting here for the past half hour trying to gather my thoughts because I have so much I want to say but no idea how to say it. It's only a while after you're done watching Roma that the sheer weight of what you've just seen hits you. It's a film so ambitious it borders on narcissitic, but Cuaron somehow manages to pull it off and leave us with what is undoubtedly the best movie of the year.…

    The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    ★★★½

    The Babysitter: Killer Queen is not the fifth. Still, it’s pretty good, and if you liked the first instalment you will certainly like this. (And again, if you didn’t then you just don’t like fun)


    It does everything the first film does but just... more. More violence, more comedy and more over the top B-movie wackiness. Sometimes it gets a little bit…

  • The Search for Life in Space

    The Search for Life in Space

    ★★★

    Very interesting, but based entirely on the subject matter rather than its strengths as a documentary.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion

    ★★★★★

    Visible confusion. Well,  I... uhh, well fuck.

    Ok so to get it out of the way yes this is one of the best series produced on any medium and no it is not overrated. I keep typing things and deleting them because I have no idea what I’m currently feeling towards this but I want to get some of my thoughts out of the way before I go to bed and before I get a chance to watch End of Evangelion. …

  • The Raid

    The Raid

    ★★★★½

    The Rule of Cool:

    “The limit of the Willing Suspension of Disbelief for a given element is directly proportional to its awesomeness.

    Stated another way, all but the most pedantic of viewers will forgive liberties with reality as long as the result is wicked sweet or awesome.”

    This is wicked awesome and so so badass. John Wick could never. Didn’t  once take my eyes off the screen, which means I never had time to take any notes so this will…
