Blade Runner 2049 – Review (Spoiler Free)

Blade Runner 2049 is a special one. For others, it has to live up to 30 years of expectations. For me, it has to live up to months of expectations. This was my most anticipated film of the year before I had even seen the first. The director, composer, cinematographer, and cast – all favourites…

The Villainess – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Good action is always appreciated. The action is great but isn’t presented the best it could have been. Still it is better and more creative than what most films show nowadays. The lighting is great. The use of colour in particular scenes was great and was beautiful to look at. The editing was great…

IT (2017) – Mini Review (Minor Potential Spoilers)

Good Skarsgard as Pennywise was good. He was great in the iconic opening scene, hidden in shadows with just the main features of his face showing. The Losers were great as a group. One particular member was overlooked and didn’t really feel part of the group but there were many other satisfying characters with great…

Westworld: Season 1 – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good I think everyone says that Anthony Hopkins is a great actor and I’ve been saying it along with everyone else. But, I’ve never really seen a performance by him that really made me think he is great. Until now. He is amazing. Just the stares and looks he gives are enough to send chills…

Detroit – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good I have seen Will Poulter in many just three films before; The Son Of Rambo, The Maze Runner and The Revenant. None of these films really got to show me how good he really was. The Revenant was the closest but Detroit wins. He is fantastic, vile but grounded in reality. He felt human…

Yes, there were still some top notch moments. Yes, in no particular order, here they are. “That’s not you.” – Arya & Nymeria…

Has GAME OF THRONES lost its THING? (Spoilers)

Introduction Season 7 Episode 6 was a mess. I did not like it. It put doubt in my mind that the show had lost what used to make it great. Over the week I had “recovering” from the episode, I realised that it’s one episode in an entire television show that I don’t like. In…

A Ghost Story – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good If there is one word I could use to describe this film it world be beautiful. The cinematography on display was magnificent. It was a gorgeous looking film and really relied on this in order to keep us engaged in its story. The music also played a key role as the film is basically…

Dunkirk – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good Films often rely on the difference between loud and quiet moments to have maximum impact on its audience. Dunkirk proves that consistency in a moment can create a far more impactful experience. As in, this film is a non stop, tension filled cinematic. experience. I have heard people complaining that it takes a while…

The Graduate – Mini Review (Spoiler Free)

Good I’ve seen this film before, but that was before my skills as a film goer had been enhanced, now on my second viewing with these new skills I have recognised how great Dustin Hoffman is as Ben. My favourite performances are the subtle ones, with small characteristics building on a character and Hoffman does…
