    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    "The end is inevitable, Maverick. Your kind is headed for extinction."
    "Maybe so, sir. But not today."

    ***
    SEEN IN 4DX.

    ***

    If ever there was a movie to see in 4DX, with the rollercoaster seats tilting and rumbling and gyrating in time with the action onscreen, it’s gotta be Top Gun: Maverick, what with all the spinning, dive-bombing, corkscrewing, and bobbing and weaving all the planes do.

    The awe-inspiring, adrenaline-pumping, and predominantly practical(!!) aerial action sequences repeatedly left my…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    "The only thing I do know is that we have to be kind. Please, be kind. Especially when we don't know what's going on."

    ***

    A multiverse-spanning ideological battle between Rick Sanchezian nihilism, Albert Camusian absurdism, and Kurt Vonnegutian humanism, as told through the allegorical lens of a high-octane martial arts action comedy sci-fi family drama.

    With added dildos, butt plugs, fanny packs, and googly eyes.

    Even with all that being said, none of these words can do justice to…

    The Backrooms (Found Footage)

    ★★★★

    "That's not a person..."

    ***

    More insidiously creepy and disquieting than outright scary, the entire Backrooms series by Kane Pixels (with the dozen or so "episodes" - including the unlisted videos - that exist as of this time of writing) is a fascinating blend of grainy VHS horror, late 80's/early 90's paranoid sci-fi, and incredible DIY visual effects implemented to realise the liminal, dreamlike layouts of the eponymous rooms.

    In essence, it's like a nightmarish concoction mixing together the look…

  • Possibilia

    Possibilia

    ★★★★½

    "Why? Why is it so hard to be a human being?"

    ***

    Whoops, I did an oopsie!

    Turns out I made the error of only having watched the abridged 6 minute YouTube video version of Possibilia, when in fact that was only a tiny taster of an actual gigantic choose-your-own-adventure film, with an interactively navigatable interface, that I've barely scratched the surface of, but which has oodles of extra footage, extra Daniels filmmaking creativity, and extra multiversal multitudes of replay…

    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…

    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...?

    MOFFAT:…
