|75 T8||The Bride Wore Black (1968) - 13 Nov 2023
"Pretty compelling and entertaining, with a definite Hitchcock vibe. What's curious is that the woman is less sympathetic and human than the shady blokes she was seeking revenge from. It gave the film and odd vibe. Worth checking out."
|65 T5||Infinity Pool (2023) - 13 Nov 2023
"I love the visual style and carnage of it all, and the performances were all solid. Some wonderfully gratuitous moments as well. It was a bit empty, though, in that my attention waned a bit towards the end of the film. Cronenberg is definitely one to watch."
|41 T2||The Predator (2018) - 26 Apr 2023
"This was entertaining in parts, but I really didn't care for it. The first Predator film was great; I'm yet to see another one that I enjoyed. I think I was a bit cranky at the time so maybe I'm not being fair here."
|35 T1||Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) - 26 Apr 2023
"I really don't get it. Just watch the Live Aid footage on Youtube."
|90 T10||Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022) - 13 Apr 2023
"Rather incredible, all things considered. Took me a while to break into it but, even though I thought some elements fell a bit flat, as a whole it was a joyously absurd riot."
|57 T3||Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) - 13 Apr 2023
"I think you might only be able to tolerate this if you like Rachel McAdams (I do). It has some charm, but just couldn't recreate the same sense of ludicrousness that the real-life event manages effortlessly; it's all a bit too respectful and understated. Might pass the time if you are in the mood."
|50 T2||Burnt (2015) - 13 Apr 2023
"I think it's important for a film about food to make you hungry (see Paxton's review). This didn't do that, so you just had to accept that Cooper's character was a culinary genius, and I didn't really get it. The performances were fine, but the plot wasn't really engaging. Well made enough, but not really gripping. Remember that short-lived series Kitchen Confidential, based on the Bourdain book, that Cooper was in? Me neither."
|70 T6||The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023) - 10 Apr 2023
"A fun computer game tie-in that kinda made me want to play some of the games again. My son (10) said this was the best film he’d seen this year. He loved it. I stayed awake and it held my attention. It had some charm. One for kids I reckon, but it won’t make grown ups wish they were dead."
|65 T5||Smile (2022) - 27 Mar 2023
"Some familiar themes popping up here, but it was executed pretty well. Lost its way a bit for me towards the end as I felt the previous focus on the psychological aspects warranted something a bit different, but ruminating on it afterwards it was all quite effective. An interesting modern horror."
|80 T9||JFK (1991) - 23 Jan 2023
"I like this sort of film, whatever sort this film is. I can't speak to the facts, but whatever they are presenting here was compelling. I'd now loved- to actually know what happened. Coupled with a top-quality film-making craft, the three-hour plus running time flies past. A great cast. Loses points for Pesci's and Jones' strange hair. Definitely worth seeing."
