    LIGHTS OUT (2016) 
    I’m conflicted on how to feel about this one. It has a neat concept and some good filmmaking, but I found the actual execution of such a  simplistic concept to be weak, and I think the film was bogged down by lots of generic, cliche jump scares and mediocre acting. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can recommend this one despite being a competent and commendable feature directing debut. It really didn’t go anywhere for me, and on top of all that, it just wasn’t all that scary.

    Loved it. Charming and wonderful, and very funny too. Peter Sellers elevates the film with his subdued and nuanced characterisation of this sheltered man who is quite literal about everything he says and does. Watching this man go from nothing to a beloved political speaker was very endearing and inspirational to watch. Besides from the forced in subplot of certain political people trying to find dirt on Sellers’s character that lead nowhere, a great, classic film that is eerily similar to Forrest Gump. Would strongly recommend.

I can't say I've seen a film quite like The Lighthouse ever, and I mean that in the best possible way, as I think The Lighthouse is something of a masterpiece. The film is the second directorial feature from Robert Eggers,…

    I rewatched Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World in honour of its 10th anniversary a few days ago. This has always been a favourite of mine, and this revisit proved unexceptional. A decade later, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is just as quick witted, energetically paced and entertaining as when I first saw it. 
    This film contains not a single dull moment, and it’s consistently fun and playful throughout. Much of that is due to how visually stunning the whole film…
