    Yeah, this left me with a pit in my stomach— a haunting experience all round. I didn’t expect anything less from Kurzel, who’s a master at capturing the lonely, stark landscapes of Australia. The whole thing is beautifully captured yet has a sickly, grotty feeling surrounding it. The sound design captures sonics that are so insanely eerie, from fences to trees to bees buzzing—the works. It’s very lowbrow analysis but the sonics and visuals of the whole experience makes you…

    Okay but Gawain is literally me—he has eternity to prepare for his assignments and panics at the last minute. He’s not so much me in terms of someone who can befriend a fox and talk to ghosts while sexily riding a horse but still, I see myself in him. I get I’m not sexy like Dev Patel but I still see Gawain as my spirit animal. He’d be a fun dude to chill and maybe even go the club with!

    Jodie Comer's Hollywood takeover is happening before my eyes and I'm so happy. Ridley's 83 and still crafting battle sequences this visceral, let's bow down to the REAL king. And who cares if the accents are silly? Ben Affleck gets to trounce around as a drunken bleach blonde orgy master!

    Halloween Kills

    All filler, (ironically) no killer.

    I can suspend my belief if this wasn’t so boring and devoid of any thrill. I wasn’t enamoured with the 2018 one but at least it had some great Laurie moments—I hope Jamie Lee had a lovely three days on set for this. I don’t care in the slightest about this dumb town with dumb people. Someone please just decapitate Michael, these people have no brain cells. Please nuke this town into oblivion (except Laurie and Allyson, they’re cool)!

    In space, no one can hear your daddy issues. It’s obviously not the action film Fox wants everyone to think it is. It’s meditative, intimate, haunting and heartbreaking. Brad Pitt is brilliantly subtle and communicates so much poignant emotion from his face alone. I also think it has my favourite opening scene of the year—I was transfixed. I can’t wait to expand on my thoughts as it ruminates in my head. All I will say is that we don’t deserve Hoyte van Hoytema’s talent.

    ★★★★

    What goes inside Christopher Nolan’s brain is the question I had after watching Tenet. I’d argue it’s his most complicated film on a pure story level, even more so than Inception and Interstellar. Even after I left and was excitedly discussing every nuance with my friends, I had to check myself. I’m confident I’ll be rewarded for multiple watches but I can’t say I grasped every beat of this story. I can’t put it in my top five of his…
