    Mad Max: Fury Road


    So...there comes a time in a movie-goer's life when an unprecedented phenomenon occurs. You see a film, and you have to give it the highest rating possible. Nothing can deter you from doing this. You give it full marks and move on without a hint of uncertainty. The notion that there are flaws seems like a myth and even if there are any, the sheer awesomeness encompassing the slither of negativity is enough to absolutely, utterly and positively conquer it.…

  • Dreamcatcher



    It is around the 43 minute mark in Dreamcatcher that we enter a bathroom. We proceed to be stationed there for another seven minutes, and the events that transpire inside call to mind the chocolate bar scene from Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd; the disparity being the usual matter has been replaced with blood and bile. This is the precise moment when a once semi-intriguing narrative, with decent character and plot set up, falls flat on its face…

    Gangster Squad


    Gangster Squad is a vacant film that nauseatingly bestows upon us the opportunity to watch a slew of famous actors embody their noir fetishes in the most rudimentary way possible. It’s offensive how out of the loop the film leaves its audience as it traverses the spectrum of mind-numbing noir clichés – coming across as solely a vanity project for all actors who ever wanted to be Humphrey Bogart or Lauren Bacall growing up. It’s obviously centred around an interesting…

  • Downsizing



    This really worked for me. I totally recognize the prevailing criticisms against the film, but Downsizing captured my imagination unlike most movies I’ve seen recently. Adventurous not only through ground covered but by incorporating an almost mercurial narrative. A common complaint has been that this results in an identity crisis, yet I found the peripatetic focus/direction to be an exercise in leaving no stone unturned. This concept is so rich that there are innumerable routes and perspectives to consider, and…

  • Enemy



    It's difficult to articulate the skin-crawling, bone-chilling and spine-tingling aura of Denis Villeneuve's Enemy. In the full 90 minutes, we cross and recross the emotional spectrum all the while mesmerised by the films surreal tone and eeriness. Mystifying to all upon first inspection, the film was never intended for lethargic audiences. It was intended for the analytical and inquisitive who constantly and passionately congregate the clues in an attempt to solve the bamboozling riddle. I, myself, may not have unlocked…

  • Noah



    The arresting fashion in which Darren Aronofsky injects profundity into a predominantly superficial genre may be the most impressive accomplishment of the resplendent and epic Noah. Aronofsky, a filmmaker with the incessant purpose to innovate and redefine, puts forth one of his most divergent motion pictures but simultaneously one of his most mainstream with this re-imagining of Noah's ark. A true blockbuster on the surface, the sweeping temperament of Noah is uncommonly matched with intelligence and a bonafide, gravitating narrative…
