|75 89%||Game of Thrones (2011) - Jun 20, 2019
"Season 1 brings a compelling story to the screen worthy to be placed among HBO's - and TV's - best. In just 10 episodes the series adds several moments of major emotional kicks, as well as many hours of pure entertainment. It does not live up to the sophisticated storytelling excellence of shows such as The Wire, but in terms of accessibility, sets and costumes, entertainment value, acting, music and overall production it indeed reaches great heights."
|20 5%||Casual (2015) - Jun 13, 2019
"Dropped after 1 episode."
|55 49%||The Simpsons (1989) - Jun 10, 2019
"Up to season 25E08 - dropped there. Phenomenal early seasons, went bad quickly afterwards."
|45 31%||Conan the Barbarian (1982) - May 27, 2019
"The better production value and the odd moments of unexpected comedic brilliance - whether intentional or not - make Conan rise ever so slightly above the average level of quality of your everyday 80s sword and sorcery flicks. Nevertheless, one has to pose the question whether the better production value - which comes with stricter censorship for marketing and distribution reasons - actually hurts the film in hindsight. The main appeal of the sword and sorcery genre is its campiness, after all."
|40 24%||The Beastmaster (1982) - May 22, 2019
"As a child I used to get fascinated with adventure parties in sword and sorcery flicks. The unity between the leads and the diverse roles each one had - the hero, the girl, the brute, the comic relief (the animals), the wise mysterious saviours (the bird people) - I was dreaming about and now I reminisce with great feelings of nostalgia and lost innocence. The Bestmaster almost achieves that, but it gets too boring too quickly because of its formulaic nature. Tanya Roberts is insanely hot though"
|40 24%||Aquaman (2018) - May 17, 2019
"Yet another mediocre formulaic addition to a genre that was absolutely crammed with mediocre formulaic films in the past 20 years. Which only sadly speaks a lot about the state of the general populace if cinemas are still full of people (more than ever even?) devouring their mindless 2 hour unpretentious intellectually restricting bit of fun even if they've seen it before a hundred times. But then again I watch all the superhero films, so its a bit hypocritical of me to criticise, innit."
|65 73%||Dragged Across Concrete (2019) - Apr 24, 2019
"In hindsight I loved this. Admittedly very long, but the length is not felt at all. The off-key feel of the film, its collected quirkiness, the tension, the memorable characters and artistic shots create a feeling of excitement of what's to follow in every scene. The film is unpredictable, it is not afriad to challenge some of the established norms and traditions - both in Hollywood and in general culture - and Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn and the whole support cast deliver. /c Cineworld Wandsworth"
|5 0%||Warrior Queen (1987) - Apr 20, 2019
"The best part of the film is its poster. It perfectly encapsulates the secret guilty pleasure desires of an audience - truthfully never satisfied by any B movie that ever existed - in a classic 80s style of sword and sorcery drawing. The film has a single scene worthy to be called quality B movie indulgence, while the rest drags on and on in a boring, too serious fashion for it not to be fast forwarded through in the hopes of finding another gratifying element of the film. But there isn't one."
|60 62%||Hereditary (2018) - Apr 08, 2019
"The film can proudly boast of having one of the most compelling and aesthetically complete sequences of the past decade of cinema, one that hits so hard that the viewer is left to try and collect the remains of his/her mind and emotion, shattered for the duration of the film. The "girl in the car" sequence is masterful, has a profound impact, and truly unravels the film. Alas, the overtly satanic themes towards the end hurt the film. A more collected Babadook approach may have been better."
|40 24%||Mozart in the Jungle (2014) - Apr 08, 2019
"Abandoned halfway through season 2. Although it has an interesting and seldom explored theme, including cinema giants such as Bernal and McDowell, the series has a major setback in its lack of cohesion, flat and naive character development, anarchic plot progression, and its biggest sin of all: it feels like a neo-liberal propaganda piece, culturally appropriating classical music into (or vice versa) the shallow, egocentric culture of self-loving, glorifying the god of pleasure above all else. "
