|80 T7||Deadpool 2 (2018) - May 16, 2018|
|100 T10||Tully (2018) - May 15, 2018
"If "Tully" isn't my favourite film of the year come January 1st it'll be a miracle. "
|85 T8||A Quiet Place (2018) - May 08, 2018|
|70 T5||Ingrid Goes West (2017) - May 05, 2018|
|65 T5||Clerks II (2006) - Apr 28, 2018
""Clerks II" starts out feeling like a relic from a bygone decade that no one really wanted to make. The humour is repetitious and dull, the jokes all too often centred around the same then topical themes and pop culture staples of the time, and everything fell flat for me. But after a delightful dance number, and a third act that serves as a true wake-up call, I realised that seeing Dante and Randal as relics was exactly the point. An almost rousing finale to the View Askewinverse indeed."
|95 T9||Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - Apr 26, 2018
"When I sat down to watch "Infinity War", I wasn't particularly excited. It just didn't feel like the cultural moment it truly is. But in the moment, in every second of its 149 minute runtime, I was absorbed, enraptured by the sheer amount of care and time it's taken to reach this point. It's not flawlesss, but I'll be damned if it isn't the best cinematic blockbuster in years, a risk-taking, joyously cluttered, and truly daring culmination to a decades worth of stories. Full marks, all around."
|20 T1||Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003) - Apr 25, 2018
""Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" would make me so very sad, if it weren't too preoccupied with making me laugh. Every aspect of the first that didn't work is played up even more this time around, held together by a narrative that somehow has even less surprises than its predecessor, with another secret villain, more wire-faux action, and character drama sourced from the most banal and trivial conflicts imaginable. Points for the Angels themselves though, who seem to be having a blast together."
|40 T2||Charlie's Angels (2000) - Apr 25, 2018|
|100 T10||Lost in Translation (2003) - Apr 24, 2018
"You know greatness when you see it. That's always been my philosophy when it comes to the films I love the very most, and this idea holds especially true when it comes to "Lost in Translation". I found it so incredibly easy to get lost in this world, with Tokyo having such a profound identity, within and without the walls of the hotel, and to believe that Bob and Charlotte could find solace in one another, if for but a brief moment. Beautifully acted and stunningly emotional. A favourite."
|50 T3||Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) - Apr 22, 2018|
