  • Richard Jewell

    Richard Jewell

    ★★★★

    If you want to help me out, you can also read this review on my blog by clicking here!

    This review contains some spoilers for the 15:17 to Paris and some spoilers for Richard Jewell (although mostly they follow the known story of the real events! So if you know of those, you should be fine!) I will also be adding this to my Clint Eastwood retrospective, which you can find here and/or here!

    I have to admit it - at first, I was…

  • Domino

    Domino

    ★★★★★

    Been working on this for a few weeks. This is an analysis of Scott's entire output! Not only Domino. If you want to help me out, you can also read this same analysis either in parts (1980s analysis here1990s here and 2000s here!) or as a whole with screenshots included, if you click here!! Thanks everyone!

    It always hurts to see someone die. It hurts twice as much when said person has directly impacted your view on art, and it hurts even more to know…

  • Allied

    Allied

    ★★★★★

    Watched this solely because Kiyoshi Kurosawa said it was his favourite film of the 2010s and I have to say I'm completely dumbfounded to be even nearly this impressed by Allied. Pitt has never been better and the focus on performance is seriously insane. Never seen anything quite like it, and it isn't like it intentionally skips over the cliches of the spy or of the romance genre, opting instead to absorb them wholeheartedly and use the form to subvert.…

  • Boy Erased

    Boy Erased

    ★½

    It sure is a good job someone made a 2 hour movie to remind us all that the attempted conversion of sexuality is bad! No one would have figured it out otherwise!

    The Irishman

    ★★★★★

    The Unforgiven of the gangster epic. God, that final thirty minutes is a gutpunch that one can’t prepare for. A movie bound to haunt and linger. I might come back around to writing more on this, but for now I’m just a little knocked around and speechless. De Niro and Pesci give career best performances, and Scorsese makes his greatest since The Age Of Innocence... if not ever. An extended held breath of a movie, and the exhale is as…

  • Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Film

    Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Film

    ★★★

    I think it would be pretty unnecessary to mention how I have connected to Kanye’s music as I imagine all of the people who might actually read this are well aware already, but seeing him transform his music into a new style based on positivity and rebirth was incredibly cathartic even if this film is simply really good looking static shots. I’m not even too sure as to why, but I really like the keyhole effect, especially when it is…
