    Let the Right One In

    A coming of very, very old age tale. A fable maybe, or a legacy. Vampire lore stretches within its story of friendship and deep loneliness. The yin and yang of togetherness, bonding, distance, care, fear...

    β€˜LΓ₯t den rΓ€tte komma in’ carries a vivid memory, as it landed around a horrendously difficult time in my life. A friend that I'd known since school had lost her battle with her own inner demons that had plagued her for many years. Nothing can…

    Bear with me as I take you on a little journey through cowboy country. Five years ago (almost to the day), Mrs Graham and I were planning our 25th anniversary trip to the US of A. A trip that would start in LA and take in some very special places including San Diego, San Francisco, Napa and Vegas.

    Now, her ladyship has always been partial to a great western movie and in fact, it's probably her very favourite genre. In…

    In a month packed with disturbing visions, this series of excruciatingly horrific imagery takes the top spot as it sets out to inform the viewer of some of the truly dreadful ways in which the human species treats the other animals that share this green and fertile planet.

    From pets to food, furs to β€˜sport’ and scientific experimentation, Joaquin Phoenix breathes his way from painful scene to painful scene, all the while using hidden camera footage to build a picture…

    We Are the Flesh

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Spiralling
    Down down, on a journey to inner peace
    Colours, red and orange
    Burning inside, cold outside
    Is this a new kind of love
    Or eternal pain
    Twisting, like knives reaching
    Grabbing, snatching, cutting deep
    Freedom is out there somewhere
    But at what cost
    Brothers and sisters, a different love
    The same love, or lust
    Or just plain fear
    Confused, lost, together, alone
    The darkness is here at last
    Leading the way home

    "So much potential wasted in a male."

    Josh Brolin and TimothΓ©e Chalamet getting sweaty in a knife-fight was a classical love scene only surpassed by every, single, second of Zendaya's all encompassing screen presence.

    In Dune, Denis Villeneuve has found a moment of clarity in a sea of mediocre releases. Its intelligent screenplay and devastatingly beautiful presentation carry a tale full of the future inside this incredibly detailed world.

    While cosmetically outstanding, the near-perfect casting transcends the film to a…
