  • Melancholia

    Melancholia

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Besides Synecdoche, New York, No film has given me more existential anxiety and dread than Melancholia. No film has captured my own existential crisis like Melancholia has. No film has given me such depressing thoughts about life and death like melancholia has. No film has depicted depression with such emotional resonance, where I can relate it to my own experiences, like melancholia has.

    Melancholia is about depression (Justine), existential anxiety (Claire), and the meaninglessness of existence (earth being destroyed by…

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★

    CandyMan (2021) should have a story that is as clear as day, yet the plot mechanics as to why and how things happen are so incredibly convoluted, it steers itself into muddled territory, while moving at a break neck pace, never allowing the atmosphere to breathe, the plot to develop naturally, and its many, many ideas to become fully formed. It’s mixture of old ideas from the OG CandyMan and new ideas in this modernised version of CandyMan is overstuffed…

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★

    Alien: Covenant acts as a sequel to Prometheus, and a prequel to Alien, and in doing so, is messy in its execution, especially when it sacrifices character, dialogue, and plot logic in favour of its sci fi ideas and themes. 

    However, I’m just so fascinated by this sci fi realm, and the world that Ridley Scott created in Alien, and is wanting to expand upon with these prequels. Despite how flawed both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant are, there’s so many…

  • Prometheus

    Prometheus

    ★★★

    Prometheus is definitely more focused on its sci fi ideas and themes about those hot burning existential questions of ‘where we came from?’ And ‘what is the meaning of our existence?’ rather than its characters, the dialogue, and plot logic. However, I’m absorbed into Ridley Scott’s world he has created here, coming back to his own franchise to expand upon everything. 

    The desolate location, the ominous score, and the cold look of the film compliment the bleak atmospheric surroundings. This…

    Tenet

    ★★

    I found out, While I was watching tenet, there was a COVID-19 outbreak happening outside. I thought I was in a horror movie.. I was scared that I would be stuck inside the cinema watching tenet all day.😭

    But in all seriousness, even when the above story is serious, Tenet gave me a headache. 

    Tenet is a culmination of every film from Nolan.. for fans of Christopher Nolan, that might be a treat. For me, who is not really a…

    The Humans

    ★★★½

    The Humans is a nice little ambitious piece of film based on a play of the same name. A family drama told like a psychological horror, with moments of comedic levity sprinkled momentarily. 

    The director sets the audience in a one location set, a broken down apartment used as a playground for the psychological horror that will loom over every dramatic element that is waiting around each corner. This location holds a thanksgiving family reunion of dysfunctional proportions, where as…
