  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    “Where am I?”
    “Earth.”

    I am a massive, massive fan of the original Top Gun. I was confident the sequel would be a fun trip down Nostalgia Lane, but I wasn’t sure it would be a certifiably excellent action movie in its own right. But it is! It genuinely outdoes the original. Shame on me for doubting Cruise.

    Maverick has everything you want it to have: astonishing aerial camera work, fun nods to the original, solid supporting performances, a lot of laughs,…

  • Robot

    Robot

    ★★★

    Sir, cash, credit, or cheque card?”
    “Gun.

    Really tough to learn that I’ve wasted my entire life up to this point never dipping into Indian cinema before because this was a fucking riot

    Robot has more endings than Return of The King and I’m not mad about it. Rajinikanth’s hair grows and shrinks in each scene like it is respirating. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is my wife now. ‘Mount Kilimanjaro’ is the bop of the century. 

    Give me MORE.

    Kill Bill: Vol. 1

    ★★★★½

    “You didn't think it was gonna be that easy, did you?”
    “You know, for a second there, yeah, I kinda did.”

    Rewatched this for the first time in a long time. Still rules.

    I love the moment when The Bride is erasing Bill’s name from the steam on Hattori Hanzo’s window. After her first pass there’s this tiny portion of the ‘B’ left, and she looks at it and carefully wipes it away with her finger. Always stands out to me.

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★½

    I’m on acid right now, btw.
    WTF?!”
    Had no choice. Otherwise my cover was blown. BRB.”

    A very silly, very cute movie. Unbearable Weight is obviously Cage’s movie but if it works to any extent, it’s because of Pedro Pascal. He plays earnest and dumb without a hint of self-consciousness. 

    Lots of fun callbacks for fans of Cage’s movies, but the brilliance of Snake Eyes was unforgivably ignored. Pretty wild that the daughter of Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen looks exactly like Allison Pill. Sharon Horgan is great in literally everything.
