    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    The Northman is a film based on Hamlet but it is in a viking setting and it completely works. Robert Eggers went all out here and it pays off. Almost every technical aspect in the film is masterful from it’s stunning cinematography to the dark yet mystical atmosphere built from the lighting and the thundering celtic folk score. The acting is great with easy highlights being Alexander Skarsgård and Nicole Kidman (especially in that one scene). The revenge filled story…

    Barking Dogs Never Bite

    ★★★★

    Barking Dogs Never Bite may not be Bong Joon-ho’s best film but it is still a stellar debut. All of his qualities are present here such as his incredible camerawork, use of misdirection and the blending of genres. In this film, he mixes the genre dark comedy with thriller and by themselves, each genre is done very well but these two distinct tones do occasionally clash. Obviously, he improves this later on with Parasite or Mother. Even then, this film…

    Drifting Home

    ★★

    Drifting Home is a really interesting mystery/fantasy/drama film where a group of friends go to a supposedly haunted apartment block that suddenly appears in a vast ocean causing them to be stranded. What an interesting concept. How could this be even slightly ruined? The answer is a cast full of loud, annoying and insufferable characters that scream half the bloody time making you wish you were dead. 

    I will say some of the dramatic elements were decent when it wasn’t being too dramatic and the animation is undeniably incredible. Shame these didn’t save the film.

    Another Round

    ★★★★½

    I am so glad that I went for another round of this film. (I am so sorry you read that). 

    But yeah, this film is practically perfect. The dialogue is one of the stronger aspects of the film along with the acting. It is so captivating and not a single scene was boring or dragged a bit. Mads Mikkelsen is god tier as always here. Cinematography is stunning and at times just plain disturbing the more they get drunk. The…

    This movie exists so Christian Bale can flex his Jim Carrey impression.

  • Nightmare Alley

    Nightmare Alley

    ★★★★½

    Nightmare Alley is a thrilling crime drama with an extremely captivating main character, stunning cinematography and a brilliantly tense final act. The set design is great especially during the carnival scenes. Bradley Cooper steals the show as Stan. His character’s story is extremely entertaining with his rise and with his eventual fall. His psychology and his charisma never fails to keep him interesting despite him making questionable decisions and then digging himself into a hole he cannot get out of.…
