    GoodFellas

    ★★★★½

    One thing you can always trust Scorsese with is to make a good gangster movie! Although I can’t agree with those who say this is one of the best movies of all time, it is still very good! It is quite a long film, just like most of Scorsese‘a films, but you hardly feel it because there’s always something happening. Which is actually impressive considering how this isn’t that violent of a movie. The only thing I was let down…

  • From Dusk Till Dawn

    From Dusk Till Dawn

    ★★★

    In a movie that includes vampires and preachers wielding shotguns, the most unbelievable aspect for me to believe is that George Clooney, one of the most gorgeous men alive, and Quentin Tarantino, one of the goofiest looking men alive, are brothers. I also don’t know how I felt about Tarantino’s performance. I was taken out of my viewing experience every time he was on screen because I could only see him as the guy who directs some of my favourite…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    I remember watching the trailer for this and thinking there was no way this was going to be good. This was going to be the first Mad Max movie in decades, the director was in his 70s, and since the Thunderdome he’s best known for Babe and Happy Feet. I’ve never been so wrong in my life! This is the best action movie ever made! The practical effects are done perfectly, the story is exhilarating, and the movie keeps you…

  • Spider-Man 2

    Spider-Man 2

    ★★★★½

    My favourite of all the Spider-Man movies. Doctor Octopus is the best of any of the Spider-Man villains and it’s not even close! Great action sequences that are balanced well with deep emotional sequences. Highly rewatchable!

    Best Quote
    Peter Parker (once he got his powers back): I’m back! I’m back!
    Peter Parker (falls down on car, moans): My back. My back.

    Best Scene
    The train sequence. Everything from the fight with Doctor Octopus, stopping the train, and the passengers carrying…

    Cast Away

    ★★★★½

    Although he’s made good movies since this, I would argue that this was Tom Hanks’ last great performance. Very few people could hold your attention with only a volleyball like Hanks can. This movie is so good. You really feel all the highs and all the lows that Hanks feels. A must watch! 🙏🏼

    The plane crash scene! The movie is pretty slow up until this part out once the plane crashes and…

  • The Godfather

    The Godfather

    ★★★★½

    At the age of 24 I’ve finally the cinematic masterpiece that is The Godfather! There were a lot of reasons that I was hesitant to watch this: I seldomly enjoy older movies, it is three hours long, and there is so much hype around it. So, because of all that I didn’t want to watch it because I thought there was no way I’d like it as much as everyone else. And I can say with confidence that this definitely…
