    HELL YEAH BABY WE’RE BACK IN ACTION!!!

    Pure cinema. What a ride.

    Sometimes the cinematography is absolutely nothing special and then sometimes they do the shot where the camera pans around Harmony to reveal the villains squatting just behind her in the frame. 

    This time it was called Immortal World (2016), which is just beyond insane. This film did not exist in 2016, right? Am I going insane? There is no Immortal World in this film.

    During the first train…

    This movie baffles me. 
    On Sky cinema, it’s title is Otherworld? And the poster is the hero walking through a doctor strange portal while a city explodes behind her? 
    First off, this is not an action movie, there are no explosions or sci-fi fights. I could not even tell you what genre that was after just watching it.
    Secondly, Otherworld? What other world?! There is no other world in this fucking movie! The original title is Harmony, the characters name,…

    ★★★★

    This movie… is good. *I hang my head in shame and walk slowly off stage to chorus of boos. A single voice calls out, “actually, he’s right”. I stop and turn to see who it is. It’s Nick Carroway. “You’re worth the whole damn lot of them put together.” I’m Jay Gatsby.*

    The cast really gave it their all, the amount of screaming and whooping Rey and Finn do is fantastic, and I’d forgotten how electric their chemistry is, Oscar…

    Looked through every single movie on Paramount+ and this was the only thing that caught my eye. Sad!

    Far superior to the Luhrmann adaptation, which isn’t difficult, but seeing where they diverge is a fascinating exercise. The only facet that I think Luhrmann’s version does better is the portrayal of Tom. Edgerton as Tom is a boisterous, macho, larger-than-life ruffian, a parody of the very idea of the “man’s man”, who is proven to be pathetic and hollow beneath the…

    Truly fantastic, a movie that fully deserves the title of blockbuster. Like the best blockbusters, it’s not limited to being just one thing. It’s a comedy, a horror, sci-fi, thriller, action movie, social diatribe. It contains every sensation and emotion that film can convey, fear and jubilation, tension and relief, disgust and delight, it’s at once an explosive spectacle and a human story, above everything, it’s an experience. A Star Lasso Experience, if you will.

    There’s something so earnest about…

    Moon Knight

    Moon Knight? More like “Poo Shite”, by which I mean this was fucking terrible.

    I had the thought last week about what this could have been if they actually tried. Now I haven’t read Moon Knight comics, but from what I understand, the appeal of the character is that he’s an insane vigilante whose best stories are about his fractured personality and the brutal violence he inflicts on criminals. You could do a Paul Schrader-esque flick, in the same way…
