• Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

    ★★★★

    A rare sequel which is much better than the first, even with the first film still being great. Mike Myers is a gift to the world.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child

    A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child

    ★★

    This one was pretty far out there, I couldn't really keep up with what was going on and the baby Freddy and what the fuck.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

    ★★★

    We're definitely hitting cash grab territory with the franchise but this still has its moments that make it fun, especially Freddy's wet dream line.

    The practical effects are pretty gnarly too.

  • The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★½

    I was a fan of the first two films but this one didn't do it for me. It started great but then it went a bit all over the place and it felt too messy.

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★

    Fantastic follow up, taking place immediately after the first part and we get a fitting story which serves a good purpose for the characters and their growth in this world.

    There's some incredible camera work in this, sound design much like the first one is exceptional and there's some really well thought out parralels throughout the film.

    Also getting to see a little bit of 'Day 1' was so so good, a great way to kick start the movie and take the audience for a ride.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

    ★★★½

    The terror drops on this one and is backed up with some whacky content and great one liners from Freddy. Personally I prefer the darker tones of the first film but this is a fun sequel and it's great to feel like a franchise is still going strong three movies in.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    ★★★½

    I love the opening scene, and the closing scene, basically any film with a Bus scene will trigger my brain to enjoy it because of connections to the greatest movie of all time, SPEED.

    But yeah this is a cool sequel, they don't just do the exact same thing again, Freddy manages to take over the body of Jesse and use him to do his killings.

    It doesn't feel as thought out in this one though, I've seen it twice now and I don't know what I'm missing but like...why is Freddy doing that exactly? I just kinda go with it.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    ★★★★

    The classics are classics for a reason and this to me is by far the scariest of the big hitters, the extended arm sequence followed by that slightly limped run whilst showcasing the glove of bladed fingers is absolutely terrifying.

    My only issue with Elm Street is I never quite got the ending, I love the way the car looks when it's trapping the teens and driving off but why is Nancy's Mother just watching as they're screaming off down the road... Are we still in a dream or has Freddy surfaced to the real world?

  • Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

    Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

    ★★★½

    Intersting and heart warming documentary about such a unique experience in making a film. Don't mind me, just going to obsess over all of Andy Kaufman's work.

  • Man on the Moon

    Man on the Moon

    ★★★★

    Absolutely wonderful film, I didn't know anything about Kaufman before but I'm now so infatuated by him. Jim Carrey is such a talent to have portrayed this in a way no one else could have done.

    I looked up the Gatsby bit after and watched the full thing in stitches, to make the audience part of the performance is incredible, so many boundaries pushed to be uncomfortable and entertaining.

  • Blow Out

    Blow Out

    ★★★

    Women really did get the butt end of things in the 80's didn't they, Sally's character was so poorly written making her irritating. Whilst we see only men being portrayed as successful...

    This was a pretty cool movie though, I struggled to keep up with what was going on with John Lithgow's character though, but yeah the ending is pretty fucking bleak.

  • Funny Games

    Funny Games

    ★★★

    I wanted to love this, it's got so much tension and the performances are on point. But there are too many really long lingering shots, which I can appreciate, especially the way they handle the *SPOILER ALERT* first death, but following scenes were just a bit too much and was hard to keep interested.

    The fourth wall breaks, the first one I liked as it could also have just been him talking to his brother, but when he actively speaks…
