    No Country for Old Men

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    After watching this for the umpteenth time, I’ve finally started analysing, while sparse, the scenes of dialogue in this film. Other watches had me more invested in the remarkable visual storytelling that sets it apart from other thrillers that boast the same tone and while that was still one of the most prominent parts of this watch still, I found myself focused on what the Coen’s had integrated into the script. Of course, the infamous coin toss scene is an…

  • Cold War

    Cold War

    ★★★

    Cold War is a beautiful film.

    It's the one phrase I could come up with when I said to myself "I should write something about Cold War". In all fairness, its 3 o'clock in the morning, so maybe that's why I'm drawing a blank. Cold War didn't deter my thoughts and feelings, nor did it challenge my perspectives or result in a reaction I'd remark as "out of the ordinary" but it was just a beautiful film. Nothing more, nothing…

    ★★★

    By allowing Shane Black to helm the third instalment in the Iron Man series, Marvel has provided us with a smart, sharp and reasonably entertaining film, one of which that boasts more wit than others. It's a little unfortunate that the film's plotting had to be riddled with plotholes and narrative loose ends, not to mention the occasional slog the film becomes at certain points. All of that considered, Iron Man 3 is still a commendable achievement for both Black…

    Shazam!

    ★★★½

    Shazam! is like a really, really cheap packet of American cheese you bought at some run-down supermarket in an extremely dark alleyway. You didn't want to go in and get the cheese because, I mean, it's a travesty of an alley. In all honesty, the dairy products at that place don't particularly have a reputation for being even decent, let alone edible. But it's really late and all you wanna do is get drunk and eat some cheese; a noble…

  • Alita: Battle Angel

    Alita: Battle Angel

    ★½

    A monotonous CGI trainwreck riddled with clichés, appaling writing, weightless action, stock music, boring characters, cringe-worthy dialogue and above all else, had the goddamn nerve to dedicate its ENTIRE RUNTIME to a possible SEQUEL to a film that literally NO ONE WILL WATCH.

    I hate films.
