    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★★

    Very pleasantly surprised how much I loved this!! To be honest, I went in with very low expectations...expecting a completely PG Hollywood fluff version of a great R&R story.

    OK, yes...as a life-long Queen fanatic, some of the chronological inconsistencies made me (stone cold) crazy: Killer Queen being played on their 1st TV appearance for their 1st album (it was on their 3rd album), Fat Bottomed Girls being played on their 1st US Tour (it was on their 7th album!!!)…

  • Hold the Dark

    Hold the Dark

    ★★★½

    I loved Jeremy Saulnier’s last two films Blue Ruin and Green Room and rate him very high in the top new Directors out there these days...and he has now entered a new level with Hold The Dark

    Absolutely Beautifully shot...
    Very reminiscent of the work of Denis Villeneuve as this kind of falls somewhere between Prisoners, Incendies and Sicario...which could not be a higher compliment 

    This is a director that is going to lead the way into the next decade as one of the leading visionaries in film...

    Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces

    ★★★★

    OK, I'll admit it....as one of the biggest TP freaks on Earth, I hadn't watched this yet!!!!

    When I bought the Blu-ray Box Set the day it came out in 2014, I wanted to save this until after I did a rewatch in order to fully be back in "Peaks-Mode" to enjoy it.

    Honestly, I just expected an extended group of deleted scenes like any DVD bonus feature...

    I had no idea how mind blowing this footage was and absolutely…

    Holy Mindfuck!!!
    I was blown away a few years ago by Panos Cosmatos’ debut film Beyond The Black Rainbow and couldn’t wait to see what he’d come up with next...
    Well 8 years after his debut, the wait is over!
    And he even managed to kick it up a few notches...
    This is a cult film for the ages and one of the most visually stunning films I’ve ever seen.
    Picture if Stanley Kubrick or David Lynch directed Rob Zombie’s…
