    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...

    ‘Låt den rätte 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…

    ★★★★

    A campy crossbreed of a film, with elements of the Giallo classics, I Spit on Your Grave and Hammer House of Horror, The Vampire Doll revels in its own unabashed fabulousness.

    There's a line in the blurb for The Vampire Doll that I reckon sums it up beautifully:

    "For the sake of proper plot development, she doesn't believe Yuko's mother…

    Immediately searches for anything in which Sakura Ando appears... wow, what a performance.

    The loneliness of old age is a scary prospect, but combined with the almost unrelenting thirst for human company, it can leave even the most confident characters vulnerable to the wolves of society. They wait and prey on the unsuspecting, trusting nature of the elderly to fill their pockets with their victim's hard-earned treasures.

    Sawa's journey from home help to vulture is complicated though, and it's clear…

    Dune

    ★★★★

    "So much potential wasted in a male."

    Josh Brolin and Timothée 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…

    After an awkward premature exorcism, the scriptwriters rolled over and fell asleep.
