    "And i can't wait to see this dream in which ill be a child again and feel happy again because everything will still be ahead, everything will be possible..."


    Sat in my chair for a while trying to think of something to say about this film and no points truly every fully clicked. A man (Andrei Tarkovsky in this case) looking back to his life, and discovering that fractured memories will forever exist, but they cannot be returned to in…

    "When I was lying in the V.A. hospital with a big hole blown through the middle of my life, I started having these dreams of flying. I was free. But sooner or later, you always have to wake up."

    Yes I know what you're thinking, but I've heard it all.

    "It's overrated"

    Trauma bringing a group of people together where they all collectively process their grief in a way in which they can shelter the next generation from the same trauma, but in the process they inflict new forms of terror. A staple post-9/11 film.

    James Newton Howard's score is otherworldly. Shyamalans direction is astonishing here, moving from tender to horrifying at the flick of a switch; some of the scariest…

    "I'm not broken... and I'm not alone"

    It might be just recency bias, but maybe the best display of courageous heroism in a comic book movie since the Raimi Spider-Man trilogy. Where Batman v Superman was about being able to pull out hope through darkness, Zack Snyder's Justice League is about that hope and optimism shining through once it's found.

    My recent first-watch 5 star films have all made me view cinema in an almost different way. With Spielberg's overlooked…
