    Champions League Of Directors 🏆

    75/100

    It gave me major flashbacks to Pulp Fiction, Four Rooms, The Voyeur & Suspiria.
    In fact it was on it's way to becoming an all time favourite when Chris Hemsworth shows up and the whole thing grinds to a halt. It picks up again once we get another back story but it did hurt the flow of the film.

    77/100

    A much more abstract horror than Peele's debut and one layered with metaphors and terrifying ideas about identity.
    I think this will have more rewatch value too as there are so many questions left unanswered!
    It doesn't rely on jump scares, instead creating an uneasy atmosphere for our protagonists to endure.
    It's darkly comic with great dual performances from the family of 4 with Lupita being the standout, maybe not on the same level…

    W🌍RLD MAP

    69/100

    What an absolutely bizarre slice of cinema.
    At first I thought it was meant to be a heavy handed metaphor for how not being able to have children can drive a couple to madness. It works on that level but it's actually an adaptation of an old folk tale.
    It's a dark comedy, it's horror, it's animation, it's really hard to pin it down to just one genre.
    It's a bit overlong and I wanted more of an ending but that's my only gripe with this.

    The League of Gentlemen - Live Again!

    ★★★½

    Non films seen in 2019.

    I'm a big fan of the radio/TV series but outside of that medium I don't think it really translates. The movie was fun but was far too meta.
    It's always good to see the league doing any material and if we're never going to get any more episodes then live shows will have to do.

    🎃HORRORWEEN🎃 2017

    67/100

    This was a pleasant, fun surprise. I had low expectations with it being a McG film but I really enjoyed it.
    It reminded me a lot of the movies I grew up on, like 'The Gate' & 'Fright Night'.

    Sat in the cinema with my Force Awakens t-shirt, I was waiting for the rush of nostalgia to hit me (member, member chewbacca?).

    It didn't come. I didn't feel the way I did when I saw Force Awakens.

    It was still awesome to see Darth Vader, the Death Star, *insert spoiler here*, but I never really cared for these other characters, apart from the droid and Donnie Yen, because he's a legit bad ass.

    Maybe…
