    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


    Hands down one of the most afflicting scenes to come out of comic book movies in recent times is the people of New York all dressed up in their Spider-man costumes listening to Mary Jane pour her heart out in honour of Peter Parker. Really sets the tone for this insanely human story about a kid who’s just trying to live up to his fathers expectations let alone an entire city’s. Pure unadulterated excellence.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame


    The most scintillating blockbuster ever put to screen. Blending the last 11 years into 3 hours seamlessly while still managing to be it’s own explicitly sombre (and at often times uplifting) thing and pulling off absolutely every single thing it sets out to do. Fan service by the bucketload, an encapsulating score by Silvestri and a masterclass in writing is just the tip of the iceberg for what this has in store for you... Truth be told, nothing can prepare…

    I Think We're Alone Now


    Classic premise full of potential that’s executed extremely poorly. I’m sorry but a blandly made film with one of the dullest actresses in the business as one of your leads was never going to work - Dinklage’s performance and Taylor’s score are beautiful though. Glimpses of light amongst a giant pile of rubble.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower


    So used to watching this with someone else that I forgot how sadly comforting it felt to be watching it alone. Dealt with lots of hurt over the last few months which has resulted in me not logging much on here but trying to get back on track now hence the rewatch. Watching Charlie, Sam & Patrick dance along to Come On Eileen usually gives me the boost I need to get me back to the best version of myself, here’s to hoping.

    Hope you’re all well. Love Always <3

    Think you're ready? You aren't. Trust me.

    10 years have been leading to this. Leading to sadness, to anger, to confusion. Leading to the gutsiest blockbuster of all time. It doesn't give you room to breathe, not even for a second, and the sheer amount of excitement it brings to the table is off the richter scale. I don't want to say much because it needs a second viewing immediately but one things for sure, Thanos lives up to the hype.

    Scene of the year goes to Gambino performing This Is America in sync with warehouse noises while simultaneously being a huge smartass. Give him the Oscar already, cowards.
