    Jeepers Creepers

    ★★½

    Jeepers Creepers is on the prowl for some peepers, but what he finds are two irritatingly juvenile siblings cruising along Florida roads as they build up the titular demonic serial killer with a grimy sense of foreboding and mysterious terror ripe for its time - the only compliment Salva will be receiving - however the budgetary cuts leading to the rewritten third act are incredibly noticeable with a redundant psychic, meandering suspense and a lame conclusion.

  • Gremlins

    Gremlins

    ★★★½

    Gremlins greedily devours Christmas food after midnight, swan dives into a swimming pool and competently avoids bright lights in Dante’s classic horror comedy where the mischievous titular creatures terrorise a small town with consistently humorous results - a stair lift zooming off and launching a horrible old woman to her death is a notable highlight - yet while the superb special effects sterilise the corny violence, it’s still a devilishly festive feast for all.

    The inventor dad character was just the worst though. No remorse after the chaos he introduced, just a “we saved the day yayyy” moment. The poor acting didn’t help either…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Everything Everywhere All At Once implodes at the magnitude of its imaginative multiverse omnipotence, with the Daniels’ now signature idiosyncratic randomness serving the plethora of goofy alternate universes to frenetic perfection, yet it’s the profound familial drama acting as the narrative cerebrum that truly shrouds the viewer in a cosmic whirlwind of emotional heft - Yeoh especially flexes her endless range of acting virtuosity, and Quan wonderfully grounds her wholesome character arc - ingeniously highlighting the significance within the insignificant.

    Hilarious. Thrilling. Existential. Dramatic. Heartfelt. Original. Ambitious. 

    Yeah, I want to watch it again. Immediately.

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    Ad Astra galactically depicts sorrow, proving that no one can hear you cry in space. For the past few years, dramas set in the expansive dangers of space have been my bread and butter. Devouring them during my annual breakfast as I purposefully starve myself for the taste of space traversal. Every year, the likes 'Arrival', 'Blade Runner 2049', 'First Man', 'Interstellar' and my all-time favourite film 'Gravity', have secured scores ranging from outstanding to perfect. Whilst Ad Astra may…
