    This Is Me…Now

    ★★

    J. Lo’s “Mad God”. Ben’s “Darkest Hour”.

    Hints of “The Matrix Resurrections” and “Avatar: The Way of Water”, spliced with a “Singin’ in the Rain” homage and Lopez mouthing along to Barbara Streisand in “The Way We Were” at 4am.

    I’m a massive defender of music videos. When I was a kid, music videos were my cartoons. Before heading off to school, I’d put on any number of music channels, every single morning. I love them and I think you…

    ★★★½

    Here's the thing with Chained, it's a dark, very disturbing and sickly depressing film from Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch's daughter). I wasn't planning on watching this and when it started I was planning on switching it off. I had heard mixed reviews, lots of people loving it, many hating it and I didn't know what to expect. Well, I was surprised. Not only did I find it very thrilling but I thought it was very well made. I hadn't heard…
