    ★★★

    The framework is definitely there and it covers some interesting themes like identity, self-believe or comic-book obsession and does it in a way where it doesn't seem overly preach, which is a fine thing. With that said, the execution is somewhat disappointing.

    Lets cover the positives of the film, because I don't want people to think that I'm just shitting all over this:

    - The acting is superb for the most part. McAvoy was great again and easily the best…

    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    This is the best type of remake. It used as framework, the premise of the original, and turned it into its own unique thing. And that's the best way to describe this movie, unique.

    From the storytelling to the visuals, "Suspiria" is its own beast. Its complicated, its weird, its disturbing and breathtaking.

    There are set pieces in this film that are absolutely terrifying on their own, let alone when you add to them the dance element (something that was…

    Green Book

    ★★★★

    The hate for this film doesn't surprise me at all. First of all, it won a Golden Globe. Only for that people will you give some shit.
    Adding to this, it tackles and uses a lot of stereotypes to make the story easy to understand and I see how it can offend some. It also changes the historical facts. AND ALSO is a easy going movie.

    With all of that being said, I thought "Green Book" was wonderful. The critic…

    A Single Man

    ★★★★½

    After coming from "Nocturnal Animals" I finally watched "A Single Man" and holy mother of God its fucking brilliant.

    Tom Ford's direction once again stood out from the crowd. The hair, make-up and dressing once again complemented the film super well. Colin Firth's performance was gut wrenching, Moore was great too and even Hoult managed to shine in the Firth's show.

    Its a depressing character study and although I'm almost sure that I won't take as much on rewatch as…

    Bird Box

    ★★

    If "The Happening", "The Mist" and "A Quiet Place" somehow through the evolution of genetics, managed to give birth to a child with three parents, we would get "Bird Box".

    Another movie where I don't like Sandra Bullock, although Tom Hollander, John Malkovich and specially Trevante Rodes give good performances. But the film follows every beat of this kind of post-apocalyptic setting: people trapped in a house, a logical asshole, a dumb "soft-heart" who fucks up putting everyone in danged,…
