    Killers of the Flower Moon


    2023 Ranked

    Two days later, I am still utterly speechless. Killers of the Flower Moon is a masterclass in direction, cinematography, writing and acting, telling a harrowing yet important story about a tragic part of American history that many may not know about. It explores its themes of greed, racism, corruption and its plethora of other important topics extremely well, never once shying away from telling the ugly truth. Leonardo DiCaprio is at his best, and Robert De Niro delivers…

    Damien Chazelle Ranked

    Damien Chazelle, my friend, you are on one hell of a streak. Four movies that are all incredible - bravo. I was nervous about Babylon after seeing the mixed reviews, but I needn't have been. It's as crazy, loud, in-your-face and chaotic as everybody says, but in the best way possible.

    Babylon manages to be both a love letter to cinema and a criticism of Hollywood at once, excelling in exploring both themes deeply. In…

    This is the sort of film that feels a little bit average throughout, but once it ends, it packs a lot of punch and has an emotional climax with a nice overall message. There were times I thought it was a little too drab and depressing for a Christmas film, but once it came to a close and I grasped what it was going for, I didn’t mind as much. It has its slow moments and parts that get you…

    Four Christmases


    Eh… this had some sweet moments towards the end and I enjoyed seeing Vince Vaughan and Reese Witherspoon together, but it was mostly a miss. The comedy just suuuucked and was not funny at all, during any of the visits to the respective families. It was forced and cringeworthy and gave probably the worst performance I’ve ever seen from Jon Favreau. It’s also everything a Christmas film should absolutely not be - depressing, tiresome, bland and grating. It lacks Christmas…

    We're All Going to the World's Fair

    Approximately once a year, a movie comes out that I simply do not like as much as everybody else and can't get my head around why it's so widely loved; this is that movie. For once, I'm going to stick by my opinion and not be swayed by the internet; I hated it. Besides a pretty creepy atmosphere, a couple of scares and a decent lead performance, I forced my way through this movie and the run time dragged. Nothing…

    I watch a lot of films, and I enjoy a lot of films. However, it’s extremely rare for a film to come along and completely sweep me off my feet, take my breath away and remind me why cinema is the most important thing in my life. 

    This film means the absolute world to me, it came exactly at the right time, and I’m delighted to share my review for it. Please give it a read if you have a couple of minutes.
