    mother!

    ★★★

    I'd heard so much about this and expected a lot from it, but maybe I expected too little? I can completely understand how mother! has become of the most divisive films in recent memory; it exists in this sort of nightmarish realm of cinema I didn't know quite existed, and it causes such a visceral reaction that it's simply impossible to put into words if it is a good experience or a bad one. There's millions of theories about what…

    Cats

    ★★★

    By now, you're probably aware that Cats has had a reception not dissimilar to Harold Shipman at a nursing home Christmas party. Seemingly doomed from the start, Cats has went from a perturbing trailer to a career-ending car crash from which no one will recover. 1.5 star average? Yikes.

    ★★★★★

    I adore the medium of film. The fact that anything can happen, in any place, any time period, excites me in a way nothing else can. Of course, there's the stinkers of the movie world, but for every unfortunate event playing out on screen, there's two or three prodigious ones. However, the film world may be dandy and fresh, but there's one thing that has always got on my nerves.

    Whenever a child star portrays a lead character in a…
