    "You Break The Rules And Become A Hero. I Do It And Become The Enemy. That Doesn't Seem Fair"

    You can really tell Sam Raimi sat in the Directors chair for this one. I underestimated this movie, the trailer was more than strangely off putting for me. As someone who doesn’t particularly care for Wanda’s character, it was refreshing to see a villain that felt more close to home than a purple alien. The cinematography and camera work was very…

    “Surprisingly, the Earth is still in one piece”

    NO IT’S NOT.
    BILLIONS ARE DEAD.

    This movie was so funny in the worst way.
    Genuinely felt like the most rushed movie ever.

    “Maybe it’s just the drugs talking, but maybe we will have a big drug scene.”

    Nike Cage and Pedro Pascal take LSD and live out a movie plot. Nice.

    I had a lot of fun watching this. Seems like the cast had such a good laugh making this. This movie references so many other movies which is great. Even though the movie is about Nick Cage, it felt really well made and almost reflective of who he is.

    “We’re thirst for vengeance, but we cannot escape our fates.“

    A gruesome, religious, Epic full of blood and raw emotion. The cinematography was absolutely amazing, and the soundtrack incredible too. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, the atmosphere and immersion this created was so strong and I haven’t seen anything like it in a long time. This will definitely be one of my favourite movies of 2022. The acting was great, but the choreography, set design and camera framing really took the…

    “I’ve been right here the whole time. I get this feeling I was meant to know you, Alana.”

    A good 70’s style coming of age story. It fits into its own genre, which is why I really enjoyed it. I found this to be one of the stronger PTA movies because I found myself so invested emotionally with our two main characters. While this is mainly a Drama/ Romance, there are a lot of comedic moments throughout. The main characters…

    ★½

    “Have you seen what I’m wearing? I’m in a glitter straight jacket.”

    I really struggled to enjoy this movie. I laughed only once and that was during a death scene. I cringed quite a bit, but it’s simplicity of the ‘Uncharted’ like storyline that really bored me. This made the movie seem like a drag to me which then as a result added to the boredom.

    But this movie is watchable. And while I didn’t enjoy it, the writing wasn’t…

    ★★★½

    “People don’t realise this, but loneliness is underrated.”

    A movie where everyone loves Zooey Deschanel. 

    I love what this movie does with jumping back and forth along the storyline. I really like the dual camera shots to compare both the lives of our main characters. I enjoyed the writing, this isn’t a typical romance at all. It was quite funny too. Considering the amounts we jump around, I found this movie quite easy to follow. The writing was simple yet…

    “One day the AIs are going to look back on us the same way we look at fossil skeletons on the plains of Africa. An upright ape living in dust with crude language and tools, all set for extinction.“

    This movie requires a lot of thinking, much of it is literal but it’s also confusing at times. The psychological thriller genre is always best with slow burn dialogue and still camera shots. And that’s what this film does perfectly. Although…

    Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story

    ★★★

    “I am not in your world, I am not constraint by anything”

    This was indeed spine chilling. I’m very picky with documentaries, but this handled everything pretty well. It’s difficult to keep my attention when dealing with non fiction. I liked the structure, and I appreciate that the doc is broken into two parts. It’s interesting to learn about where Jimmy Saville came from and how he became famous and rose social ranks that opened the doors for his criminality. What’s…

    Grown Ups 2

    ★★

    “A burpsnart? It's simple. You just start with a burp, then you sniff with a sneeze, you get that going, and that triggers a fart, always.”

    Even stupider than the first movie, this is one I enjoyed not as much. I used to watch this a lot as a kid, but 9 times out of 10 I would fall asleep before the ending. This movie goes nowhere, it’s just a 90 minute goof. But it’s watchable and a few scenes are actually funny.

    “Are you peeing or is a diesel truck turning off?”

    I used to watch this so many times during my childhood. To me it’s always been a silly nonchalant movie I’d watch before bed. I saw the thumbnail on Netflix, and thought I’d watch it for old times sake. It’s funny, but it’s basically a string of scenes that’s only purpose is to full fill jokes. But I don’t view this as a movie to review or judge, it’s simply a kid movie for me and I enjoyed it enough to say it’s like 50% decent at entertaining me still to this day.
