  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    ★★★★½

    Nomadland is an existential film and as a very existential person of course I love this. This got me thinking about how the one thing that all film fans have in common is we love a good story whether it's something that gets us to revaluate ourselves or simply something greatly artistic or entertaining. Nomadland tells a story that gives great insight into a whole different way of life, these kind of stories being told is why I love cinema.…

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    This is my 4th time seeing this and it holds up so well. This is the 1st time that I've watched this alone which gave me a real opportunity to think about how good this is in retrospect. Everyone else I've watched this with on previous watches was viewing it for the first time so there was this specific overwhelmed reaction they gave off which effected how I viewed this. You've probably already heard in other reviews how stressful this…

  • The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    ★★★★

    Why weren't people talking much about The Man Who Killed Don Quixote when it came out? This is another abstract, philosophical yet zany and greatly humourous film. Johnathon Pryce and Adam Driver are great as thier characters have very interesting arcs and bring the story to life. The more I think about it I don't think anyone other than Terry Gilliam could have made this, his mix of surrealism and the humour from when he was a Monty Python. If you like yourself a good farce then you'll probably have a lot of fun with The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.

  • Field of Dreams

    Field of Dreams

    ★★★½

    I'm not interested in sports or sports films but Field of Dreams has a lot more to it than the consistent relevance of baseball. There's a clear character arc for our protagonist that drives the films messages and meaning that make it overall and interesting watch. I don't have much else to say about this one really.

  • Children of Men

    Children of Men

    ★★★★

    Children of Men is another great entry into the sci-fi dystopia sub genre that's at its best when it explores the impact of such a world. People on letterboxd have given this film so much praise to the point where I'm not sure if there's anything original I have to say about it. What I will say though is I really dig how there was the right balance of hope and despair where this feels slightly apocalyptic yet like there's room for salvation. Some great music features in this too so that's always a good bonus.

  • Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    Tom Clancy's Without Remorse

    I am without remorse when I say that I am sick and tired of these bland, predictable and completely pointless action films. Between us me and my parents predicted every plot point before it happened, there is no risks taken or anything done out of the ordinary which means there's no reason to care about any of it. I love what the action genre is capable of but too many entries we get in it nowadays are the same old…
