    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

    ★★

    "SWEET JESUS, IT'S AN ANTI-AT FIELD!"

    It's been a while since I last saw this, but it's a clunky mess of ideas. It's some of the most well-animated trash ever, however, which is where my two stars go to. I adored the TV series and original ending; it was conclusive and beautiful. Unfortunately, Hidaeki Anno submits to the fans and gives exactly what they wanted with EoE. The theme of self-actualization that came forth in the TV ending is rejected…

    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

    ½

    I was very sceptical going in, but Halloween: 40 Years Later was still very disappointing. In the vein of previous 'rebootquels,' it is largely a tired story that has to rely on plot contrivances and series references to get by. So like The Predator from last month, but at least that embraced the schlock (something Predator 1987 had in spades).

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★★

    HERE WE ARE
    BORN TO BE KINGS
    WE ARE THE PRINCES OF THE UNIVERSE

    Wait, that song's not featured here. This movie is shitttttttttttt.

    But seriously, cool biopic about queen and mercury's sexuality. Very engaging cinematography and the music performances are a blast to see in the cinema. ESPECIALLY the Live Aid renactment. There's insane level of detail there.

    The cast was great, I liked Rami and Boynton the most.
