50 T5 The Great Dictator (1940) - Sep 23, 2017
"I don't want to ick everyone's yum but there is exactly one great scene in this, and everything else is honestly a waste of time. That said, the scene in question is fantastic - easily one of the best (if not the best) speeches ever put to film. But you're just as well off watching it on youtube."
75 T7 On the Silver Globe (1988) - Sep 21, 2017
"This is the film the Zardoz crew would have made if they were slightly less high. The production is incredible - sets and costumes alone kept me interested for over two hours. There's a genuine epic feel to it, though it gets a bit lost in incoherence and constantly ruptured by obnoxious overacting. Everyone involved is eating all the scenery all the time. Its shortcomings can be forgiven by its circumstances. Recommended viewing. "
100 T10 Suspiria (1977) - Sep 21, 2017
"The perfect example of how much striking visuals and a penetrating score can elevate an otherwise average film. Absolutely top tier level use of light, color and sound. A strange blend of masterpiece and garbage; Magnetic. "
75 T7 Thelma (2017) - Sep 18, 2017
"For me, there always seems to be something small and undefinable missing from Trier's narratives to make them feel fully formed. I really can't put my finger on it. It doesn't matter too much - this is still great - I just have trouble falling completely in love. "
100 T10 Mother! (2017) - Sep 18, 2017
"Buckle up (literally), Aronofsky is back in form - and what form it is. Definitely not going to be everyone's cup of tea but for me it's the most brilliant and uncomfortable two hours of 2017 thus far, and I need to lay down immediately. Bardem and Lawrence are fantastic. "
100 T10 It (2017) - Sep 14, 2017
"Like Super 8 and Stranger Things this feels like going back in time - while it's not perfect, it's another breath of fresh air: an actual film, solid as shit. Who knew movies should be about characters you care about? One of the best experiences I've had at the cinema in 2017, which just goes to show how out of touch Hollywood has become over the past few decades. So glad there are signs of changing times and R ratings, soon (maybe) movies could be movies again. "
75 T7 David Lynch - The Art Life (2016) - Sep 14, 2017
"It's a decent documentary for Lynch-fans, but it's not really much more than that."
50 T5 What Happened to Monday? (2017) - Sep 12, 2017
"Every aspect shows just how little Wirkola cares about making sense. It's silly fun, would be better if it took itself a lot less seriously."
50 T5 Cars 3 (2017) - Sep 04, 2017
"Feels more like Cars 2 than Cars 2 did, but then again there was no real reason to have Cars 2 in the first place. There are very few interesting characters in these movies. Nathan Fillion was (as always) a good choice."
75 T7 Cars (2006) - Sep 04, 2017
"Cute, but Cars is by far Pixar's worst franchise."
