• High Fidelity

    High Fidelity

    ★★★½

    Felt wayyy longer than it actually was, but High Fidelity was undoubtedly a fun, charming, funny time, with a really solid lead performance which managed to wrap together the entertaining gift in a nice bow.

  • Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★½

    “Meh” is literally the only word I can use to describe Spiral: From the Book of Saw. This film drags so much in the first half that I genuinely thought everyone was ignoring my texts before I realised that only like 25 minutes had passed.

    I wish I was joking. 

    While the second half does pick up, the Jigsaw was genuinely compelling (and threw out some annoyingly kinda right ideologies and quotes in his big reveal), and I liked most…

  • Grustle

    Grustle

    ★★★½

    This was genuinely so good! It looks great visually, and, while I think sometimes the sound mixing was poor, I did really like the score too. It’s sense of humour and characters were both fun and kept me interested throughout it, even if I felt like it was longer than it actually was to me. Colour grading (or maybe it was just the lighting) and cinematography were both, again, standouts, similar to Wells’ other work. So self aware too, really enjoyed it!

  • Hotel Transylvania: Transformania

    Reviewing for my Girlfriend:

    “I would give it a one [out of five]. No. A fucking half. It hurt me.”

  • Insert Title Here

    Insert Title Here

    ★★★

    Obviously this is for ‘Insert Title Here’, the miniseries, but that’s part of the same ‘In the Blink of an Eye’ Arc (1), so I’m going to give my thoughts on ‘OK’, ‘A Festive Title’ and ‘A Nostalgic Title’, too, seems as I’m doing a watch of everything in the arc leading up to the new feature film ‘Grustle’. 

    The rating is for the miniseries, not the other shorts I’m giving my thoughts on. 

    OK: A short, but interesting, trippy,…

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★★½

    This rewatch (IMAX Enhanced on Disney+) really solidified my love for Marvel’s Eternals, and I maybe even liked it more than I did the first time. While I do love the whole non-linear story structure (it’s something I love in many films that do it), some of the editing can be a bit iffy, and some bits of the script don’t quite work for me, as well as it’s behemoth run time being felt. However, while felt, that run time…

  • Jennifer's Body

    Jennifer's Body

    ★★★½

    Surprisingly well acted and directed, Jennifer’s Body ultimately deserves the amount of hype and recognition it gets as a cult classic. A self aware sense of humour, paired with the casting, one or two fairly well done scares, and genuinely good cinematography, particularly within its visual aesthetic and colour grading. I cant believe I’m talking all filmy about Jennifer’s Body, but I am, because it’s really fucking good.

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★½

    Okay now I think I’m comfortable with my rating. While Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings does put its own spin on the generic MCU formula, which manages to make it stand out alongside its better than usual visuals, great action and choreography, and some (while almost excessive) flashbacks and family drama that truly give these characters actual life, but there’s just something within the plot and pacing that I can’t quite pinpoint that makes this less rewatchable…

  • Spider-Man 2

    Spider-Man 2

    ★★★★★

    Got nothing on The Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series frfr.

  • Sinister

    Sinister

    ★★★★

    Pretty well directed and honestly quite scary, I genuinely understand why it ended up rated as like “Scariest Film Ever”. Also Kingpin cameo, Sinister is MCU canon. 












    That was not funny I’m sorry.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★★½

    For some reason I wasn’t as like incredibly invested in this as I usually am, but nonetheless, the practical effects, plot focus and mind blowing action make it one of, if not definitely, Nolan’s best.

  • WandaVision

    WandaVision

    ★★

    I genuinely like the visual aesthetics and cinematography (when they’re in Westview), the mystery and horror elements, and the sitcom homages, as well as the genuinely hitting emotional beats…but this show still feels like so much wasted potential, and the generic MCU elements in some episodes, and the eventual end, just feel so, as I said, generic, and I simply just don’t care. White Vision is forced and wasted, the Ralph Boner thing annoys me, and the lack of consequences…
