  • The Two Popes

    The Two Popes

    ★★★½

    There’s a lot of technical aspects of this film that I didn’t really enjoy. The comments that it’s shot like The Office hit the nail on the head and generally I feel like the shakey camera movements feel misplaced and take away from some of the spectacular performances displayed within this film. I also didn’t enjoy a lot of the jarring audio choices.

    However, I loved the story and found it a really fascinating look at faith and corruption within…

  • Tell Me Who I Am

    Tell Me Who I Am

    ★★★½

    Wow. I can’t even come to terms with this. How can such shocking evil exist?

  • EXIT

    EXIT

    ★★★½

    Really fun film with a lot of spirit. However, pretty predictable at times

  • Wet Season

    Wet Season

    ★★★½

    Really poetic and beautifully shot film (Yeo Yann Yann is amazing) -  just wasn’t a huge fan of how the issue of rape was handled

  • At Eternity's Gate

    At Eternity's Gate

    ★★★½

    Maybe God made me a painter for people who aren’t born yet. It is said “Life is for sowing. The Harvest is not here”

    Some questionable camera choices and a muddled script, but overall a very beautiful and emotive film

  • The Dude in Me

    The Dude in Me

    ★★★½

    Pretty funny with some really good physical & comedic acting - especially loved seeing Jinyoung as Pansu. The storyline is kinda sweet at times too.

    A little long and the abundance of fatshaming is tiresome but apart from that it’s a decent watch.

  • Five Came Back

    Five Came Back

    ★★★½

    I feel like the middle episode dragged a little but the third episode certainly made up for everything the second lacked. Really well made and empathetic approach to war. Really hard to watch at times and made me weep a fair amount

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★½

    50% of this film is essentially minecraft because it’s just people wandering around a field

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★½

    all I can think about is how sick Prague looks 😍😍

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    ★★★½

    the prettiest post-apocalypse house I’ve ever seen 😍😍

  • Taylor Swift: Reputation Stadium Tour

    Taylor Swift: Reputation Stadium Tour

    ★★★½

    IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, IN MY D R E A M S S S
