    Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem

    ★★★★★

    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.…

  • The Father

    The Father

    ★★★★★

    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. 

    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. My devastation was helped along by the…

    "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific." - Michael Caine on Jaws: The Revenge

    Im honestly a bit disappointed, I didn’t expect this to be any good at all, but I hoped for some silly schlocky fun, sadly I just found this boring.

    There are some laughs in there, the shark is always ripe for a few laughs with…

    Lightyear

    ★★½

    There’s no point in comparing this to Toy Story, it’s not Toy Story and doesn’t try to be. Sure there are references here and there but they are out the way fairy quickly and done in a character appropriate manner. The biggest sin is that frankly it’s a bit boring.

    The films emotional heart worked and I genuinely believe there’s some quite cool sci fi stuff in there, not mind blowing but interesting and subversive enough for what I though…

    Black Is King

    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. 

    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

    ★★

    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…
