    Starting this, I was already underlining that 'this is the same genre as Straight To Hell and Human Highway' conclusion in my head. And boy was I wrong. Not in a bad way, I love those two films, but there are only two things that they share with this one: the fact that it is either directer or starring musicians and the fact that it falls into that 'nonsense cinema' category. As for the reasons why this stands apart from…

    I figured that, since I had enough time today, that I'd watch a long movie and I've been delaying this one for the longest time, so I went with it. And I'm in awe?

    I know that there's many people who will claim that There Will Be Blood is Paul Thomas Anderson's best work, but I think that this might be it after all. I am at a loss for words, all I can say is that I paused it…

    Many criticize this because it's a remake that's not as good as the original, but I haven't seen the original (at least not yet), so I'm gonna spill my thoughts for a second.

    I found it to be rather okay, the cast is great and the tension is nicely built, nothing better than a thriller to take your attention off of a heat wave. However, it started to fall apart in the second act for me, it almost crossed over into the goofy territory and altogether it seemed to be wrapped up rather clumsily.

    Ryan and Shane are finally free of Buzzfeed's clutches, but I'd be lying if I said that I won't miss Unsolved.

    I've been aware of this film for quite a lot of years now and I refused to watch it because for so long I've had my head up my own ass and wanted to 'keep the real Phantom Of The Opera pure'. Bullshit. This was perfect.

    Really, the only complaint I can think of is that I wish it was longer, it completely blew me away! The visuals, the music, the costumes, the sets, everything was so perfectly in its…
