    Black Mirror: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too

    ★½

    I think this is a new low for the series. This is just messy and lazy and uninteresting writing. It’s like a bad TV movie. 

    - That popstar representation is dated.

    - That villain is a silly caricature (since when does this show even have a villain other than the system and the technology?). 

    - The mouse trap company subplot was unnecessary, uninteresting and unfunny. 

    - The dad character is completely pointless. 

    - The role of technology has never before…

    Black Mirror: Striking Vipers

    ★★★½

    Not one of the most exciting screenplays in this show, but the cast is really good, especially Anthony Mackie and Nicole Beharie. So it’s pretty fun, even if the story doesn’t evolve that much.

    The Evil Dead

    ★★★★

    Disgusting, disturbing, distracting. 

    Sam Raimi's 1981 classic Evil Dead really, really deserves to be called horror. And it probably still remains as his most wonderful directorial achievement. 

    I don't even consider myself as a horror fan, but making a horror film this raw, wild and daring, without much false notes, certainly earns my respect.

    And that ending is just stunning. Wow.

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★

    After having the time to check the actor's name and eventually finding out the intriguing fact that he's deaf in real life too, I had to dedicate another review to praise the most heart-warming thing in Baby Driver.

    I am obviously talking about CJ Jones' brilliantly heartfelt performance as Baby's ever-so-caring and worrying foster father. Definitely amongst my favourite things in the film. So, well done CJ.
