    Nosferatu

    ★★★★

    Do not hurry, my young friend! Nobody can escape his destiny.
    Travel quickly, travel well, young friend, to the country of ghosts.
    Travel far away to the country of thieves and ghosts.
    Do not worry.

    You can't go out now, the werewolf is roaming the forests.

    Hurry up! The sun is going down.
    You could pay us anything! We are not going any further!
    We are not going! It is creepy on the other side of the pass!

    As soon…

    Make Way for Tomorrow

    ★★★★

    He was never a delicate man, my step father. He so wanted to be a "real" man, "real" men are not delicate... on the surface anyway, that's why I left too young; Having feminine traits as well as a penis was probably pretty intimidating! Underneath the man's arrogance, blind determination, and heedlessness there's something that feels like 'Make Way for Tomorrow'.

    Casino Royale

    ★★★½

    The meaningful pursuit that is Eva Green doesn't quite reach true performance mastery she does in 'La Pianiste', as La Petit aime du Walter. Same goes for the film itself and its reputation. In fact, it's not so much better than its despised counterpart 'Quantum of Solace'. If you're like so many and tear 'Quantum of Solace' to shreds primarily based on technical incompetence (editing and shot composition even more specifically) you must do the same for 'Casino Royale'. A…

  • Quantum of Solace

    Quantum of Solace

    ★★★½

    Some might say choppy or incoherent, I say concise. In presentation of course. Possibly the only talked about element of a film with much more to offer, the shot composition and editing.

    Funnily enough that will be all I speak of.

    There's no denying that the editing is quick, very quick in fact, but I say hardly quicker than any other Craig Bond film (see Casino Royale action scenes). Where 'Quantum of Solace' does cut more quickly it is just,…

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    Reluctantly I went and I paid to see ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ in cinemas. I didn’t want to be there but still sat with a furrowed brow and watched respectfully, unlike a large portion of the packed full theatre. Stop clapping, cheering and clamouring during every moment of peace. You’re allowed to enjoy the movie, but don’t ruin it for everyone else.

    Nothing is surprising or interesting. The story goes exactly where you’d expect, the writing is as bad as you’d…

  • Phantom Thread

    Phantom Thread

    ★★★★½

    So annoyed I missed phantom thread in cinemas, would have loved to have seen it in 70mm.

    I loved it, it's my favourite Paul Thomas Anderson film at this stage, although I'll have to re-watch there will be blood to confirm.

    It's clear that love and care went into the making of this film. The production design sends you back in time to 1950's London, this is only reinforced by the use of dialect of the period.
