    Let the Right One In

    ★★★★★

    A coming of very, very old age tale. A fable maybe, or a legacy. Vampire lore stretches within its story of friendship and deep loneliness. The yin and yang of togetherness, bonding, distance, care, fear...

    ‘Låt den rätte komma in’ carries a vivid memory, as it landed around a horrendously difficult time in my life. A friend that I'd known since school had lost her battle with her own inner demons that had plagued her for many years. Nothing can…

    Stagecoach

    ★★★★½

    Bear with me as I take you on a little journey through cowboy country. Five years ago (almost to the day), Mrs Graham and I were planning our 25th anniversary trip to the US of A. A trip that would start in LA and take in some very special places including San Diego, San Francisco, Napa and Vegas.

    Now, her ladyship has always been partial to a great western movie and in fact, it's probably her very favourite genre. In…

    That being said, all this talk of ectoplasmic worms and existential dread is making me hungry for ramen.

    ★★½

    Tinto Brass is clearly a man with a passion for the female, erm, rear and here in Cheeky this passion is on full show. While the film is essentially an opportunity to cram as much t&a into it's runtime as possible, it somehow doesn't feel particularly seedy. It's kinda... arty. I think.

    Take the opening scene. A girl walks through the park, the sun is shining and everyone is smiling. Underwear seems to have been outlawed, and the gentle breeze…

    ★★★★

    "So much potential wasted in a male."

    Josh Brolin and Timothée Chalamet getting sweaty in a knife-fight was a classical love scene only surpassed by every, single, second of Zendaya's all encompassing screen presence.

    In Dune, Denis Villeneuve has found a moment of clarity in a sea of mediocre releases. Its intelligent screenplay and devastatingly beautiful presentation carry a tale full of the future inside this incredibly detailed world.

    While cosmetically outstanding, the near-perfect casting transcends the film to a…
