    ★★

    So, err, this review over at Empire Magazine may be worth checking out. No particular reason... 

    Nah, screw it! I GOT PUBLISHED BY EMPIRE! I GOT PUBLISHED BY EMPIRE! This is very much a dream come true for me. If I never write again, or if I go on to do more with them, this will still be the absolute best feeling I’ve ever had as a film journalist. I feel like I should do an acceptance speech haha 😂 this is just WILD!

    MY FIRST EVER EMPIRE MAGAZINE REVIEW IS HERE

    Murder by Decree

    ★★★★

    Sherlock Holmes: When people are frightened, they turn to God, and when they have no help from him, they look to the Devil.

    Directed by the man who gave us Black Christmas, Porkys, and A Christmas Story, and starring Christopher Plummer as Sherlock Holmes alongside a James Mason Dr. Watson, it baffles me that Murder By Decree isn’t talked about more widely among fans of detective fiction, Holmes, and whodunnits. 

    Bob Clark’s film is set in 1888 and sees London…

  • Us Again

    Us Again

    ★★★★★

    A reminder that the short film is often the purest distillation of cinema. In just six minutes, Zach Parrish achieves a flawless synthesis of love’s transcendent, transportive power, finding in motion and music’s shared space a story of two ageing lovers who roll back the years to dance beneath the stars once more as if they never got old and grew grey at all. Beautifully lit, fluidly choreographed, and emotionally charged, Us Again wastes no time seizing viewers’ hearts, and for six beautifully animated minutes, Parrish delights in filling our minds with all of the magic that love timelessly musters.

    I just hope Matthew Perry is okay to be honest.

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★★

    ‪Master Provoc-auteur Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman is the single most powerful film against racism and Trump’s America that there has been or will be. Absolutely electrifying, funny and terrifying, entertaining and yet incredibly disconcerting... the world is fucked up, there are problems in our global society that have gone too long unresolved, and Lee may well be the answer to a lot of things... and if he is not, then he’s sure as hell got some questions to ask and knows…
