Movie Review: Da 5 Bloods

Movie Review: Da 5 Bloods

I’ve not had the chance to watch a Spike Lee directed piece that I’ve fully enjoyed. Not yet, anyway, there are a few pieces of his filmography that look superb. Do the Right Thing was a dud, the Oldboy remake was a spit in the face of an overblown, overrated original, and Blackkklansman was just alright. Maybe I’ve just hit upon […]

Movie Review: Earthquake Bird

Movie Review: Earthquake Bird

It’s not often that I can’t recall a single moment of a film after watching it, but Earthquake Bird puts me in the awkward position of not remembering a single aspect of its wafer-thin attempts at putting together a competent movie. A rare moment where I haven’t got the energy necessary to actively hate the film, since it resembles […]

Amazon Prime Special Review: Rob Delaney – Jackie

Amazon Prime Special Review: Rob Delaney – Jackie

Entering into any hour-long stand-up set these days is a complete minefield. More often than not, you’ll make it out relatively unscathed. An hour of mindless entertainment that doesn’t push the boundary of the performing art form, nor does it sap away at your will to live like many other stand-up comedians have managed over the past […]

Movie Review: Days of the Bagnold Summer

Movie Review: Days of the Bagnold Summer

The prospect of what to do with the summer holidays always used to scare me as a kid. Nowadays I just drink, watch movies and read in-between spats of lying in, listening to music and writing. Back when I wasn’t swanning around, aimlessly gawping at film after film, I was bored stiff. The cool drizzle […]

Movie Review: Never Rarely Sometimes Always

Movie Review: Never Rarely Sometimes Always

Maybe my hatred of babies, children and generally, other people, makes me impervious to the heartstrings Never Rarely Sometimes Always looks to pull. Pulling apart the hot topic issue of abortion, director Eliza Hittman presents a film crafted with definite care. A road trip movie with rather banal tones throughout pave the way in making a film […]

Movie Review: Have a Good Trip – Adventures in Psychedelics

Movie Review: Have a Good Trip – Adventures in Psychedelics

I went into Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics in the hopes of genuinely learning something about trips and LSD. I’ve not tried LSD before, if I want to get high, I just stand up when I’m not expecting it and I get a bit of a head rush. Still, my aversion to drugs isn’t something that can […]

Movie Review: Spaceship Earth

Movie Review: Spaceship Earth

Marching eight former hippies into a self-made biodome to test whether or not they would work on the moon seems like the type of idea you have at four in the morning whilst high on Lucozade. Spaceship Earth documents such a thought process, and details the interest a small group kindled n experimentation. It soon […]

Movie Review: Misbehaviour

Movie Review: Misbehaviour

Every other film I watch these days is a biopic. It’s more or less accidental, and I don’t mean to invest so much time into adaptations of real-world events that are often flimsily constructed or just completely inaccurate, like Patch Adams or Bohemian Rhapsody. Either way, I find myself watching these not out of choice, but out of subservience to the release […]

Movie Review: The Lovebirds

Movie Review: The Lovebirds

I hope I never quite find myself in a husk of a relationship, but then again, it’d be rather fitting since I’m more or less a husk of my former self these days. Perhaps the moment that this dawned on me was when I sat down to watch The Lovebirds, the latest romantic comedy to come from the […]

Movie Review: The Last Days of American Crime

Movie Review: The Last Days of American Crime

So far, The Last Days of American Crime is the only film that I’ve written out an entire review for, only to scrap it completely thanks to a complete change in tone. Six hundred words of absolute waffle conveying in a very minimal sense how bad Olivier Megaton’s latest Netflix fiasco turned out just isn’t an articulate […]
