  • Blade Runner 2049

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    For those of you who aren’t aware of my rating system, 5 stars are pretty rare for me to give out. I handed out 3 in the entirety of the 2010’s, Blade Runner 2049 being the most recent. It has now been 3 years since Denis Villeneuve’s futuristic masterpiece was released, so I thought it was time I talked about it. 

    So what makes 2049 so special? Well, just... everything. For a start - and this is the highest compliment I can give…

    Beauty is cruel by nature.” 

    Well HOLY SHITBALLS, this was an experience and a half!!

    If I’m being honest, I’ve reached the point with movies lately (as I’m sure a fair amount of you have too) where I’ve just been craving something really good. I’m not saying we haven’t had any good films since the whole Covid crisis kicked off, but they’ve been few and far between and even then the best films I’ve seen in that time have still…

    Spider-Man No Way Home vid > HERE

    Will slow down on plugging this now, just want to hit 2,500 subs before I drop my Favourite Film of Each Genre vid!

    I honestly can’t wait to see what else the Safdies make. I heard someone (can’t remember who - maybe Mark Kermode?) say they’re creating their own genre; chaos, and they really are!

    Just anxiety-inducing but in the best way. Easily Adam Sandler’s best performance, even more so than Punch-Drunk Love. Great…

    Ngl I still don’t get the hate for this. Yes the message is on the nose and yes it struggles to balance its tone, but the performances are great and it has some good laughs. As previously stated, I would’ve preferred if this focused more on the sci-fi side of things and less on the comedy, and took itself as seriously as it wants us to take it, but it’s not bad.

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★

    Just want to express my sadness at how overlooked this film has been in terms of Academy Awards recognition.

    I know some films like Uncut Gems, Midsommar and The Farewell didn’t get a single nomination - which I also think is ridiculous - but I really think The Lighthouse deserves to be competing in at least 6 major categories (score, cinematography, actor, supporting actor, director and picture). Possibly even production design, editing and a couple of the smaller sound awards too.…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Not rating just yet as there’s a lot to take in, but I loved the second half of this.

    First time in the cinema in years hearing people clapping and cheering so much!

    A truly special cinematic experience.
