  • Empire of the Sun

    Empire of the Sun

    ★★★½

    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

    Okja

    ★★★½

    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

    ★★★½

    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

    ★★★½

    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

    ★★★½

    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.
