    Morbius

    For all that "method acting" from Leto, you'd think he'd have learned to use more than one facial expression throughout this disaster. I hope the cheque was worth it for Smith and Harris though.

    Sony have no idea what they're doing.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    This was so worth the two hours.

    While a fairly straightforward story, the Northman goes all guns blazing with a great cast. Those landscapes of Ireland are simply breathtaking. The feral nature of Amleth with his background as a berserker is such a joy to watch. The final scene at the volcano is a standout of 2022.

    I'll forever resent the fact that I didn't have the chance to see this in a theater.

  • Injustice

    Injustice

    Despite the fact I already harbour a fair amount of hate for the already established Injustice story, I hate this adaptation too.

    It's got all the problems with modern animated DC features and what's more, the little tweaks to the story don't make a difference. If anything, it's a bigger character assassination of Superman than anything the games or the tie-in comics could've hoped for.

  • Irreversible

    Irreversible

    Repulsive, nauseating and just downright vile. Actually, those words aren't enough to describe this drivel.

    If it isn't the ridiculous spinning camera work, or women being reduced to objects, or the excessive bigotry in the first half, Irréversible is one of the worst experiences I've had. The less said about THAT scene, the better.

    This serves as nothing more than some deluded edgelord's absurd fantasy. I've only seen two of Noé's movies and I'm already beginning to despise him.
