    Sword fights! Sword dances! Horny baking songs! Horny letter-writing songs! Sincere emotions! What’s not to love?

  • The Fall

    The Fall

    ★★★★★

    This movie is utterly beautiful. Shot across multiple countries in absolutely stunning locations, this movie has some of the most striking visuals you’ll even see on film. And the story it tells has a beauty of its own. A young girl in hospital meets an injured stuntman who weaves her a tale of vengeful bandits, while also chasing his own desires (which are drugs, not the little girl, it ain’t that kind of movie). It’s just stunning, weaving in themes of how we tell stories and why, and how it affects those we share them with.

    Shrek 2

    ★★★★½

    The references in this come thicker and faster than the first. We get a Lord of the Rings ring ceremony and an upside-down Spider-Man kiss and more in the opening montage alone!

It also takes the wrong lessons from Eddie Murphy’s Donkey, and just makes the…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Most of the best sci-fi movies succeed by taking the extraordinary and grounding it in deep, relatable emotions that everyone connects with. Arrival, Interstellar, Wall-E. Whatever your enjoyment, you can’t argue the emotional core is there in all of them. Everything Everywhere All At Once does this to an incredible degree. It takes the multiverse—seemingly the movies’ favourite thing right now—and ignores the giant concepts, instead focusing on Michelle Yeoh’s Evelyn, and how it affects her and her family, packing…

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★★

    When Pedro Pascal’s awkward movie nerd millionaire says his #3 favourite movie of all time is Paddington 2, I audibly went ‘yes!’ in my cinema.
