    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    Exuberant and unabashedly off-kilter, Everything Everywhere All at Once is a universe-hopping, body-hijacking, and emotionally hefty sci-fi smash. The Daniels have torn up the genre rule book to make an immigrant story that’s frenetic, mesmerising, and profoundly loving. 

    The cross-cutting is stunning, the what ifs are thought-provoking (who doesn’t ponder what their trajectory would be if X, Y, and Z had/hadn’t occurred!?!), and Michelle Yeoh…MY GOD does she slay. No longer will I view her as the Bond girl from…

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★

    Grapple-hooking his way through Gotham, The Batman is a brooding, breathtaking (especially where duct tape is concerned), and vengeful vigilante mood piece. R-Batz (credit to whoever coined that one) offers a satisfying take on the caped crusader, although he’ll likely shape up and exude the stature of Bruce Wayne in the movie’s next instalment.

    Fraser’s superior cinematography swoops into action with some stupendous shots that set its technical attributes a notch above most entries in the genre. As a long-time…

    This hit so much harder on the rewatch. 😭😭😭

  • Days of Heaven

    Days of Heaven

    ★★★

    While the film’s story isn’t especially absorbing, I did find myself entranced by how visually exquisite Days of Heaven is. The film merits a freeze frame just to appreciate several of the compositions, and Malick strikes gold in electing to shoot during golden hour, capturing the warmth of the serene sunsets. The ordinariness of nature never looked so breathtaking. In addition, the twinkling score from Morricone is beautiful. Now as for late 20s Richard Gere, I am now seeing the actor in a whole new light here, ladies and gents. I would not have considered this before, but you were all right…heartthrob status very much confirmed.

  • The Lost Daughter

    The Lost Daughter

    ★★½

    Colman’s coastal escape is tainted by memories of messy motherhood and a growing obsession with others. As a thieving tourist with uncontrollable curiosity and unapologetic bluntness, it’s no wonder that she finds herself in a spot of bother.

    While Colman is compelling as always, The Lost Daughter never seems to capitalise on its intriguing ideas (one of which revolves around a doll). There’s a considerable slump in the middle made up of detracting flashbacks, although the scenes are commendably performed…

    Muppets Most Wanted

    ★★★

    Just randomly caught this on the BBC this morning. This film made me recall a previous job that I had at Pinewood Studios where Muppets Most Wanted was shooting at the time. The office I was working in was located right next to the props department where I saw all the unused Muppets hanging on the wall. It looked as if they'd been put down, it was such a haunting sight, although also a reality check that these characters are…
