    The Lost World: Jurassic Park

    ★★★★★

    Don’t go into the long grass! 

    This film was my introduction to the Jurassic Park franchise and is the reason why I fell in love with dinosaurs, whilst I now appreciate the first one for the masterpiece it is, this one is still my favourite.

    The opening scene gave me nightmares as a kid, it perfectly sets up the dark tone this film is going for, unlike Jurassic Park’s bright colour palette this film has a darker aesthetic which helps it…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    You forgot one very important thing mate,
    I'm Captain Jack Sparrow.

    From the moment I first saw this in the cinema I’ve always adored this movie even when my young feeble mind couldn’t articulate why.. but now I can.

    This film is a masterpiece and I don’t use that word lightly, the plot, the characters, the performances, the casting, the music, the practical effects, the visual effects, the stunts, the editing, the cinematography and the direction by Gore Verbinski, all…

    Dune: Part Two

    ★★★★½

    An incredible piece of cinema that further solidifies Denis Villeneuve as a director that is now rivalling Christopher Nolan when it comes to blockbuster filmmaking, this one I feel is much better paced than the first with an ending that leaves itself open to tell further stories in the Duniverse, my only complaint is that I couldn’t decipher a few lines of dialogue which made the story confusing in a few places, that might just be because I saw it in IMAX but whatever the case I’m sure it’ll be rectified upon rewatch with subtitles.

    The sheer talent that Denis Villeneuve shows off here cannot be overstated, in any other directors hands this amount of world building would be cumbersome to sit through but somehow it just fucking works.

    Casting the guy who plays Art the Clown as a murderous Grinch is the choice of all time

    John Wick: Chapter 4

    ★★★★½

    It does start a little slow out of the gate before kicking into gear, Caine is a fucking bad ass, the whole third act in Paris is jaw dropping cinema, I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

    Who knows when or if we’ll see another John Wick but if they do I hope they give us a break for a few years, let us soak in this finale and let it breathe. 

    R.I.P. Lance Reddick, you will be greatly missed❤️
