    ★★★★★

    "I'll always go back to that church, and look at my paintings."
    "I'll always go back to that church."
    "One day we'll meet."

    "Read me to sleep."

    Dissecting this movie in any way seems to go against what I believe is its whole point… it's a movie I've generally just let wash over me in the past without really thinking what it's about, just that it really moved me in ways no other movie did, and that's probably the way…

  • Dreams of a Life

    Dreams of a Life

    ★★½

    It's taken me years to get around to seeing this because, despite how interesting it sounded, the synopsis alone was enough to depress the f**k out of me. I'm painfully aware of how long it would take for anyone to notice sometimes were I to suddenly die in my sleep or something - if it can happen to someone as apparently vivacious as Joyce then it's practically just a matter of "when" for someone like me.

    Honestly, I'm not sure…

    Rage

    ★★★★

    "I do believe that life will become difficult for some people in this country in the near future, indeed. It already is difficult and that's what the people outside - yes! - that's what they're protesting about."

    "That's what beauty's become in this age of photography… bones… bones that'll one day line the dusty earth…"

    Ugh, I was wracking my brains for what that second quote reminded me of and unfortunately it was AbFab (the TV series, not the movie,…

  • Ready Player One

    Ready Player One

    ★★★★

    I gotta be fair, I enjoyed this a hell of a lot more a second time around than the first. Sure, there's no need for the "she could be a dude" scene but, like, at least they balance that with the positive portrayal of H? I don't know. I don't want to get to deep into that right now I guess. Neither do I want to get too deep into the "reality is real" message (as if it's a message…

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Someone reminded me how much I love this film today (it doesn't take much really) n I figured I should explain here since it's in my 4 favourites… this is just a copy paste of a review I wrote last year when it came out on blu-ray…

    The Little Mermaid II is honestly turning into one of my favourite movies in a very serious way. There are too many abominable reviews of it out there and I've been meaning to…

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★★★

    "Some of us just decided to do something about it."

    Like Episode 7 had Luke, Leia and Han etc, this too has a gimmick I can't even begin to talk about yet, but which was enough to have me doubting my first impression since it was so distractingly joyous. Let's just say the uncanny valley has been thoroughly breached with this movie... if only for technical reasons, I'm sure this thing has profound value as to where it stands in…
