  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    The Northman is a film based on Hamlet but it is in a viking setting and it completely works. Robert Eggers went all out here and it pays off. Almost every technical aspect in the film is masterful from it’s stunning cinematography to the dark yet mystical atmosphere built from the lighting and the thundering celtic folk score. The acting is great with easy highlights being Alexander Skarsgård and Nicole Kidman (especially in that one scene). The revenge filled story…

    Barking Dogs Never Bite

    ★★★★

    Barking Dogs Never Bite may not be Bong Joon-ho’s best film but it is still a stellar debut. All of his qualities are present here such as his incredible camerawork, use of misdirection and the blending of genres. In this film, he mixes the genre dark comedy with thriller and by themselves, each genre is done very well but these two distinct tones do occasionally clash. Obviously, he improves this later on with Parasite or Mother. Even then, this film…

    Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie

    ★★

    The animation here is stunning. That is all the good I can say about the film. The humour is painfully unfunny. Not one joke made me laugh. They have butchered Leonardo’s character. The brave leader is now an insufferable, arrogant, little prick. He is so unlikeable and his character change did not feel earned at all. This was a slog to get through even though it was barely over the 80 minute mark.

    ★★★★★

    Calvary is simply amazing. The performances here are all around top notch particularly with Brendan Gleeson as the lead and another one that really surprised me but that would be spoilers. The dialogue is one of the biggest highlights for me. The film is mostly quiet but the dialogue never fails to be intriguing. It makes you think a lot and I like that. The film is also darkly comical and with some solid joke writing but yeah, it is…

    ★★★★½

    This movie exists so Christian Bale can flex his Jim Carrey impression.

  • Nightmare Alley

    Nightmare Alley

    ★★★★½

    Nightmare Alley is a thrilling crime drama with an extremely captivating main character, stunning cinematography and a brilliantly tense final act. The set design is great especially during the carnival scenes. Bradley Cooper steals the show as Stan. His character’s story is extremely entertaining with his rise and with his eventual fall. His psychology and his charisma never fails to keep him interesting despite him making questionable decisions and then digging himself into a hole he cannot get out of.…
