  • The Trouble with Harry

    The Trouble with Harry

    ★★★

    The Trouble With Harry is that it's morbid sense of humor and surreal sense of reality is never established in a way that makes it clear what tone it's trying to hit. Normally Hitchcocks quirky dark humor is a great way of relieving tension in his more serious work, but here it is all there is, and so there is never really anything to balance it out, which makes it all fall flat on its face.

  • Love Actually

    Love Actually

    ★★★½

    Planned on rewatching 'It's A Wonderful Life' to get in the christmas spirit, but somehow ended up here. I blame the wife.

    Still a solid christmas movie though.

  • Last Night in Soho

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★½

    Argento-styled lighting, an onslaught of sazzy sixties songs and dutch angles complimented by a gripping supernatural story that both thrills and scares you, was what i thought i would get from Last Night In SoHo; and I got it!

    Also, the world does not deserve the genius of Anya Taylor-Joy but she continues to bestow upon us, her brilliance.

    Fairly certain this grade will go up upon rewatch!

  • Dressed to Kill

    Dressed to Kill

    ★★★★

    Dressed to Kill gets a bad rep for being sexually inconciderate and downright misogynistic. And it is - to some extend. However, it is also visually one of the most interesting movies ever made (in my humble opinion). The camerawork is simply sublime. The story and especially the way it is paced is deeply fascinating as well. Sure you can cop out and call it a Psycho rip off, but when you really look closer there is a story and a structure around said story that is very impressive.
