    There's not much to say about this one other than to lavish it with praise. An anime accompaniment to Daft Punks Discovery which is one of the best albums ever made. What could happen is to have the film be merely a bunch of unconnected music videos but it doesn't do that. Within 60 minutes it tells a well-done and hopeful story of identity, corporate greed, and interplanetary romance all backed by some of my favorite songs of all time.…

    Before now I’ve always felt a bit let down from films based on plays, especially of this pedigree. For the most part I feel they never use the medium of film to their advantage, gladly The Father does and as such knocks it out of the park.Β 

    Appropriate editing and well timed music emotionally invested me into this film. It masterfully plays with genre and cinema itself to create characters that really broke my heart.Β My devastationΒ was helped along by the…

    I remember watching this a ton as a kid and liking it. As an adult not watching it in 3D it’s barley a film. It’s just an excuse to capitalise on the 3D movement of the time. Flimsy plot and unsatisfying set pieces riddle it, along with laughable effects.

    It’s for kids but I’m not sure how much today’s kids would be entertained by it

    Stallone is okay though.

    The Man from Earth: Holocene

    I didn't even know there was a sequel to The Man From Earth. Amazon played a trailer after I saw the original and sought it out, why not? I have nothing else on.

    This is a truly awful sequel to an okay but much-beloved sci-fi classic. While the first film had a low budget, it worked because it was a film revolving around the script and an interesting sci-fi idea. While I admit the first film didn't completely work for…

    What a messy and thrown together product. For some reason I was quite looking forward to this, a visual album showing the ties between the Lion King story and the Black struggle through history is a noble pursuit but Beyonce inserts herself into the narrative far too often for it to have any sustainable punch.Β 

    The mix of songs and Lion King lines is really weird that didn’t sit with me, and I wondered throughout it all what the real…

    Ghost World just wasn’t for me. I really wanted it to be, the general premise and plot is interesting but I was put off by the films attitude. It feels like it’s being quirky for the sake of being quirky and I find its cynical look at the world unhelpful. It’s not trying to say anything or offer anything more than, lol people suck, lol teens weird right? You know what’s funny? The word masturbation. It just grew tired for…
