  • Empire of the Sun

    Empire of the Sun


    Empire of the Sun has that typical Spielberg schmaltz that I love. It balances intimate character driven scenes with huge spectacles for an exciting watch. Great first performance from Christian Bale too.

  • Okja



    I came to watch a movie about a girl just trying to get her pig back but I stayed for the heart breaking allegories of corporate greed & consumer excess. By the end I was finding it hard to hold back tears. It’s a touching movie. On a technical level the cinematography was super crisp & clean and the VFX were stunning.

  • The Peanut Butter Falcon

    The Peanut Butter Falcon


    What a great little movie. I loved the development between the main characters. Honestly it's the most about I've cared about any fictional characters in a long time. It made me happy, sad, anxious. Would recommend if you need a cheering up.

  • For a Few Dollars More

    For a Few Dollars More


    Not quite as good as the Good, the Bad and he Ugly (the third instalment of the Few Dollars trilogy) but still a good time. Ennio Morricone's score is epic as usual.

  • Training Day

    Training Day


    Damn Denzel Washington is an asshole in this movie but he's so good. Training Day is intense, suspenseful and well acted and well shot. Definitely earns its status as a crime classic.
