  • Poor Things

    Poor Things

    ★★★★★

    "We must experience everything. Not just the good, but degradation, horror, sadness. This makes us whole, Bella, makes us people of substance. Not flighty, untouched children. Then we can know the world. And when we know the world, the world is ours."

    Poor Things? How's about Swiss Army Woman?

    Of course I jest, but only a smidge, because like many Frankenstein-esque tales of dead bodies reanimated and reborn into life anew, this similarly acts as an askew examination of…

    ★½

    "I've got a bad feeling about this."

    ***

    The following is a running commentary of notes taken during the course of rewatching The Rise of Skywalker, done so that I was occupied by an activity to vent my increasingly seething spleen as this insultingly bastardised mess of a movie progressed.
    Interspersed will also be some insights gleaned from reading that old 18-page document of leaked details regarding the edits and reshot elements, in an effort to try - emphasis on…

    The Zone of Interest

    ★★★★½

    "'The little snow white bird flew down and sang, 'Be warned, be warned.' Gretel understood what the witch had in mind, and said, 'Please show me first, I don’t know how to do that.' The witch sat on the shovel, and Gretel pushed her into the oven, as deep as she could. Then she closed the iron door of the oven, and secured it with a bar. The witch got cooked alive as a punishment for her horrible deeds.'"

  • The Fall

    The Fall

    ★★★★

    To quote the 2019 interview Jonathan Glazer did with The Guardian (whose questions regarding The Fall he only answered via email), back during a time when Trump was still in power, the pandemic was mere months away, and Glazer’s next feature still had four years to go before it would materialise in theatres as the similarly fascism-themed The Zone of Interest:

    “I think fear is ever-present,” says Glazer when asked if a lynch-mob mentality is currently being given freer rein. “And that drives…

    INT. MOFFAT'S OFFICE - DAY
    -------------------------------------------

    STEVEN MOFFAT and MARK GATISS sit on plush leather spinny chairs, laughing like maniacs, dabbing their streaming eyes with JohnLock fan-art, and sipping from their china cups of fangirl tears.


    MOFFAT:
    So, here's an idea!

    GATISS:
    Oh, god, here we go...

    MOFFAT:
    For the one-off Christmas special to tide everyone over until 2018 when Bilbo Freeman and Bananarama Cabbagepatch are free again...

    GATISS:
    (warily)
    Yeeeeeeah...?

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    "My world is fire and blood."

    ***

    You've heard all the hype by now.
    Said hype has reached Breaking Bad-levels of insane acclaim.
    Which begs the question:
    Is the hype deserved?

    YES.
    YES YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES.

    30 years have passed since the last Mad Max movie.
    Many imitators and pretenders to the throne of action cinema have come and gone in those intervening decades, and with the occasional exceptions here and there (e.g. The Raid), the past decade…
